    Does anyone know of any Mexican Trio type bands for hire in the area? I have had a hard time finding any online. The ones through my resort seem to be very expensive (about $700 an hour, with a 15 minute break). I would like to find something cheaper.

      I should be able to point you in the right direction. Please tell me what type of music style you want the band to play? I am new to this board so if I do not spot your post in the next day or so, please get in touch with me, I don't want to leave you hangning.

        Be careful about bringing in an outside vendor. The hotel that we picked charged $80US per outside vendor/guest for day passes.

        It ended up being cheaper for us to pay $850 for 45 minute mariachi band provided by the hotel!

        Hope this helps!

          Thanks for warning me, BeachBride. One of the best things I've found about the Hilton so far is that they do not charge at all to bring in outside vendors!

              The Hilton is doing the right thing by not charging, and personally I had no idea that resorts in Cancun were still doing this. I find it really ties people's hands and forces them to choose something they otherwise may not want.

              I wonder, has anyone else run into the same issue, where a resort forced you to hire their pre-selected musical groups? If so, can you name the resort and when it happened? I think this would be so helpful for everyone to know, in advance of booking a resort to hold a wedding.

              Thanks in advance,
