      We had that menu also sent to us. You can mix and match we had
      Sea scallops salad with lime vinaigrette
      Cream of asparagus sauce
      Lemon sherbet with vodka
      Surf & Turf (Beef tenderloin with lobster tail)
      Cr¨me br»l©e
      Coffee, petit fours (this was the chocolate covered strawberries)

      I am in the food business so I knew what most of there were BUT some I had to look up.
      What items were you wondering about?

      EVERYTHING we had WAS GREAT and it was way more food then we thought!

      Let me know how I can help!

        Oh, how was the surf and turf? We are having that as well. Thanks honey- you reminded me that I need to write up our menu today.

        Opps- there is so much stuff that I'm forgetting to do.

          Hi Girls,

          Thank you for your quick replies!!! I think that I am just confused as it's spanish/ english and to me is all over the place! What did you ladies choose for menus
          Maybe hearing what you guys chose will help me understand ours? Our options were a Steak House, Mediterranean and Italian?
          Let me see if I can attach the one that we are looking at....

            We were looking at the Santa Fe before we decided to go with the gala dinner.

            This is what we were going to pick:

            Bontana Santa Fe
            Mixed Grill
            And a dessert.

            We found it very hard to understand the santa fe menu. We didn't know if we only picked one from each course or what. Best bet, email your WC and ask her to elabrate a bit more.

            We didn't want to go with the other menus because we felt that they were very limited and the Santa Fe offered the best options for all of our guests.

              Your menu seems to be exactly what we want as well!! I guess write the WC and if she needs more info she will get back to us too...right?
              Also, do you know how flexiable they are on changes! Like I know one person attending will not eat steak do you know if we are allowed to substitue for chicken on that one?

              Thank you so much!!

                Hello ladies!!! Not sure if anyone can help me. I've been trying to book my 2010 date with the WCs, who have told me they aren't booking for 2010 yet. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good travel agents in the Vancouver/lower maindland area of BC? I have gone to three different travels agents who haven't really been helpful or come up with ridiculous prices per person. Does anyone know any good travel agents they can direct me to and how much they paid per person for Barcelo Maya Colonial/Tropical for 7 nights? THANKS!!! Happy planning!

                  We are from Mn and for most of our guests it was about $1100-$1300 per person for one week including: flight, transfer (the resort was about 45 min from the airport) and hotel/All inclusive. IT TOTALLY Depends what time of the year you go..... We went in October which is considered the off season because of the possibility of rain SO I am sure it was cheaper when we went. It was also nice because it was not full so we were able to get into the restaurants we wanted without a problem. Have you asked around about a travel agent? That is how we found ares BUT we did have to switch after the first one we found was not getting what we wanted! Don't be afraid to shop around!

                    Hi TrishB12....We are from Canada as well, and are going to be there in February 2009 during Canada's "Reading Week!" I think that has made it a bit more expensive for our guests! We are each paying between $1600- $1700/ per person.

                      I just searched on the internet through expedia, orbitz, etc. for prices around the time I would want to go -- to give an idea of what the costs would be. Turns out I found cheaper deals than our TA and she was able to match them.
