Any Xcaret Park prices/weddings/contact?

Recommended Posts

So, we are booked to have our wedding at the Blue Parrot for Janaury 3rd, 2009, but after a visit to Playa last week, we are considering moving the wedding. I have started e-mailing the people at XCaret Eco-Park, and Liliana has e-mailed me back the same day I e-mail her :-) (good sign!) My biggest concern (besides price) is that they won't even let us START the wedding until 6:00 for the ceremony at the chapel, 7:00 at the Ponds for the cocktail hour, and 9:00pm for dinner at Dos Playas restaurant. The sun will set at 5:20, so the whole thing will be after dark. It seems odd to pay a bunch for this beautiful place but not be able to enjoy it at all during the day light!!

 

Anyway, here are some pics of a wedding here with a dinner in Dos Playas (I THINK, please tell me if I am wrong!) matt adcock photography

And here are 3 short videos of weddings here

Jaime, I would LOVE any info you could pass on about this place! I have all of the price lists and everything, but I would love any pictures you took while you were there and what you might think about doing the wedding after dark? Also, do you know if the pond area is located on the ocean? Do you have any pictures of it? We are having 100 guests. Do you think that La Isla restaurant would look empty with that many people? From the pictures I have seen, I think we like Dos Playas a little better. What where your thoughts after seeing the place? I would be SO GRATEFUL for ANY info you have! If you can send pictures, send them to zeemuir@rmlearning.com

 

THANKS!!

Although, I wasn't married there I went there on my honeymoon, and just got back from there for a second time. It's beautiful and there was a wedding reception going on in one of the bigger areas by the underwater river. The reception was awesome looking, who knows maybe it was someone on here, it was friday may 9th.

 

We ate at the Blue Parrot, it was good and another place is Casa Del Agua, That place was also very good!

Do they do all of their ceremonies like this or is that the only time they do it in the chapel?

The information they sent me said they won't start ceremonies in the chapel before 6:00pm, at the Ponds before 7:00pm, and actually I think they will start a reception at La Isla (the cave) at 7:00pm as well. I've put in a request to start the ceremony sooner sooner, so I'll let you all know what they say. Here are 2 more wedding slideshows at XCaret. This photographer is AMAZING, hu?? del Sol Photography Wedding Photojournalism

LOL Yes I fell in love with all three of the photographers at Del Sol. Their pictures are actually one of the reasons we are thinking of the Rivera Maya. wink.gif

Isn't that like $4500 to rent? That is so steep!!! Are there any other reception sites there that are a little more affordable??

Anita... you can have your cocktail hour at the "ponds" which is where the stone altar is, you have the ocean as your backdrop. That will cost you $2,100. But that doesn't include food or drinks. If you do anything in Xcaret it will be expensive. I have an email from the wedding coordinator, PM me if you'd like me to forward it to you.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
