We are doing the catamaran thru Paradise Catamarans too. They seem to be the best deal. They are in Puerto Adventuras which is 50 mins from the Azul Sensatori. They are picking us up in 2 vans, driving to the launch spot, a 4 hour cruise with snorkeling, open bar, sodas, and snacks for 33 people and it is approx $2,100. There have been only good reviews so far on them.

 

I am also using Susan Vincil from CancunAndRivieraMaya.com to organize a Cancun clubbing trip (2 vans to Cancun with a midnight and 2 am return to hotel) for under $400 transport. I am using them to book an excursion to do zip lining, snorkeling in cenotes, lunch, and Tulum ruins as well. Again, they pick us up in 2 vans, take up zip lining and snorkeling, lunch, then the ruins, then back to the hotel. That is $93 per person plus the vans at $200 ish.

 

From her:

 

Extreme Adventure (Cancun and Riviera Maya - Selvatica Canopy Extreme Adventure Tour), or the Cenote, Zip line, Ruins tour (Cenote Adventure & Ruins Private Tour). The Zipline Extreme is $90 per person, plus the cost of transportation ($178 total for 2 vans), and the Cenote/Zip line/Ruins tour is $93 per person, plus the cost of transportation.

 

 

 

FI's parents are paying for the catamaran and FI and I are paying for the other 2. We were not going to, but then we changed to a regular room instead of the suite and the free wedding package - so we are using that money to pay for the excursions. I think it will be easier that way than collecting money as you have to pay a % now on a CC and then the rest in cash when you get there. I would collect the cash now if we were doing it that way to avoid the headaches (and surprises) later.

 

 

I also looked at gettign Mayan massages in Puerto Morelos but I dont think we'll have time. I found a cool little place in Trip Advisor - things to do in Puerto Morelos

So they emailed me to vegetarian pasta dishes that we could get for $11 (that was the price when I first booked...I think the cheapest price is now $12 or maybe even $14). So, instead of having the chicken or pork, everyone is having the pasta option.

These were the vegetarian options we were given:

1. OVEN BAKED “CAPPELACCIâ€,STUFFED WITH SPINACH AND
RICOTTA CHEESE,ORANGE,TOMATO SAUCE


2. “EL ROYALEâ€PENNE PASTA,WITH SAUTEED
SHRIMPS,PEPPERS AND CILANTRO IN TEQUILA-LIME SAUCE

We are having the oven baked cappelacci.

If you are interested in either of these, I would suggest emailing your coordinator and asking about vegetarian options.
Ok thanks! I'm going to get on this. I'm going with the set menu too but I'm not impressed with it at all. I like both of these pasta dishes better than anything on the set menu.

We could, however, bring in someone from the United States. I am still baffled by this policy - I get the extra fee since they have relationships with certain companies, but I would think they would prefer for us to spend our money locally. We are flying someone in from Ohio - it's a little pricey, but something we decided to do.

Hope that helps!
The most recent policy I got (2 months ago) is that NO outside Mexican photographers are allowed except Matias Cano and Caribe. If you bring someone from home they must stay 3 nights.

YOU TWO!!!!!!!!! didn't anyone ever tell you that muscles weighs more than fat, so if you are working your little ass off working out, once you've lost fat, you are going to end up getting a little heavier due to toning your muscles!! So you can look and be skinnier, and still weigh more than you did.

Now...shhhhhhhhh!! lol wink.gif
