All 55 of our guests were very impressed and I think they all said they would go back in a heart beat.

Good point! A few of our guests took the bus into PV (it's only 10 pesos) and said it was a fun experience. Although it wasn't the experience for me, instead we took cabs. Be sure to negotiate the price of the cab BEFORE you get in other wise they can rip you off. It cost us $18 each trip which wasn't bad as long as you made a day out of it in PV. Buccerias is very close which has all the markets and shopping too. It's cheaper than PV as well, cabs are only $5 to get there.

We just got back from our daughter's wedding at the Riu Vallarta, just a couple of hotels down from the Riu Jalisco (there is soon to be another Riu, which I believe will be called Pacifico opening summer 200cool.gif. Anyway, some of the people in our group walked back and forth to Buccerias, or walked one way and cabbed the other (it was $7 each way last week). Most found it to be cheaper and easier than Puerto Vallarta.

I think you may be the only one so far, although there is someone else booked there too.


I have to pick your brain some more one of these days.


I heard the cake they supply is kinda crappy, were you worried about this? I'm not, but for some absurd reason James is - which is weird seeing as he doesn't like cake!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
