Cancun welcome dinner ideas?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - I am new and looking for ideas! I am going on a scouting trip next week to Cancun. We are looking at the Marriotts and a couple of other places for the ceremony and reception. I don't have any ideas yet on a welcome/rehearsal dinner. We will likely have about 100-120 guests. Is anyone planning a welcome dinner in the Cancun area for a big group? I'd love to get your thoughts. Thanks!!

The marriott is gorgeous!!!! I loved the gazebo, I'm having my religious ceremony there.. I posted some pics in my review thread..

I don't think I'll have a welcome dinner since I have more than 200 guests.. If I have it'll be a pay yourself dinner.. blush2.gif

Thanks Anny - I saw your pictures of the Marriott gazebo, they are amazing! We are discussing dates with them right now to see if they have availability for winter 2008.

Yes, I think we'll check out everything within walking distance of the Casa Magna Marriott (including the JW)...I will definitely pass on anything useful when I get back.

We are also looking for maybe a few restaurants to have a "meeting" place outside of the resort. We and all 40 of our guests are staying at Dreams Cancun and I will be very interested to see what you think when you get back from your site visit! Make sure you let us know when you get back!

Good question. I guess I'd like to stick to the Cancun area because I think we'll need to transport our guests if it's not in walking distance, and the farther we go, probably the more expensive. I would love ideally to find something in the Hotel Zone that is walkable or an easy bus ride. I imagine it would be harder to find a restaurant in the center of Cancun that can accommodate a big group and microphones for speeches, etc., though that would probably be a lot of fun if we could.
