We plan on partying over there after the reception. I heard it has the best bars and clubs.

      My co-worker just moved back to SF after spending 1 year over in Playa so he has told me all the hot spots. If anyone is interested in a list of popular places, let me know and I can post or send you a PM.

      Dang, I cannot believe how excited I am too! My heart has been thumping for the last couple of days and will not stop!
      Carina,
      If you could provide that list of playa hot spots I would be forever grateful. My FI and I love playa and try to visit it as much as possible whenever we are in cancun area.... but usually walk around aimlessly and choose a place to eat at or to party at randomly, it would be great to have some suggestions.

      Thanks

        Hi! The planning is really going well (we have 50 people with deposits now!), except for the tiny fact that I can't seem to make up my mind about our reception site! I'm having a hard time choosing between the Seaside Grill and the Ballroom. Ideally, I wish I could have it at the Seaside Grill but I'm a little uneasy about the music/dancing having to be finished at 10:30 pm. I know we could move the party to the Disco, but I feel like this might break up the festivities a lot. So I guess I'm still contemplating using the Ballroom but I can't seem to escape the feeling that if I wanted to get married in a Ballroom, I could have done that here in Ottawa. Hmmmm. Anyway, aside from mulling that over a lot, the planning has been pretty smooth! This forum has really helped me feel at ease. I feel pretty well informed about everything and I know not to freak out if all of the little details haven't been worked out ahead of time.

          You have 50 people booked already! OMG! I feel like all of our friends are so last minute. I think we are going to do everything on the beach-I am with you about the ballroom and being married somewhere local.
          Did you decide on a photographer? We just hired DJ Mannia for the reception

            I know - it's crazy that so many people have booked already! But my travel agent (bless her little heart) put the fear of God in people about the resort/Air Canada flights being booked up so people were very anxious to get their deposits in. Dare I say her strategy worked so it's one less thing for me to worry about!

            Yes, we eventually hired Freddy from Claudia Rodriguez' team. May 7th happens to be his birthday so he said that he heard such nice things about my FI and I from Carla (Claudia's assistant) that he would be delighted to spend his birthday shooting our wedding - isn't that so nice? Anyway, any indecision I had about booking with him (which was only because he is the latest addition to Claudia's team and his portfolio isn't as developed) has dissapeared and I'm really looking forward to the whole experience.

            Congrats on booking DJ Mannia! I have heard GREAT things about him! At this point in time, we're thinking of just using an ipod and DJing ourselves in an attempt to keep our costs down. But I really envy you! I wish we could do the same.

            Question for all, if it applies: Have you tried to communicate with Lizet/Landy about the other wedding that is taking place the same day as yours? I don't know what time the other wedding is taking place nor what venues they have in mind. Do you think it's worth trying to figure this stuff out to ensure you get your first pick or is it better to leave it be and not stress out about it? Just curious!

              Based on the interest that has been shown in getting the car rental info as well as the transportation I just thought I would post it here and have it available for all to use:
