    These are the snapshots I took. Normally I'd take more pictures of people, but I knew kristie had that covered. So mostly I took pictures of the hotel for the other catalonia brides to check out. I also took pictures of our adventures once Kristie was gone. I didn't even pull out my camera in Coba.

        El Mercado buffet. They only open this one once they reach 75% occupancy.

        I don't know that this one is an option for a reception. It was only open on the weekend while we were there.

          catalonia yucatan side. you really can't tell these are two hotels. They share everything. The yucatan side is booked in europe so there was a lot of diversity. I thought that was a cool thing about the catalonia. when i was in cancun before, i kept meeting others from texas. there were people from all over at the cat.

          This is a patio outside of the itallian & mexican restaurants. I think this might be an area they fix up for receptions. if not, it's an area near this. there is a balcony like space outside of the creperie right in front of this patio.

          the bar between the two- it was a nice place to relax. there were rarely people there. there was a little terrace that we sat on some nights. one night we took our food to go from teh buffet & ate on the terrace. They served us margaritas. there wasn't anyone else around. You also have an ocean view

              breakfast at the la brisa
              I loved the yogurt covered bananas.

              when my mom got home, her first thought after waking up was "breakfast buffet." She was sad to realize she wasn't in Mexico anymore.
