Dinner started around 7, but with getting people inside, then the toasts, we finally got to cake cutting around 9:15-9:30, then first dance/father-daughter dance, so there was only about an hour or less left for dancing and having people sign the guestbook (we had an instant photo camera and guestbook, and the people at the restaurant were nice to bring out the sombreros they have when they make the fancy Mexican/Mayan coffee show - made things more festive). We had about 27 people, they set up 4 tables of 8 (2 on each side) around the tree and left the middle open for dancing.
The Mariachi band was fun, I think they added a nice touch to the cocktail hour and people seemed to enjoy it. We were taking pictures the entire time, so we could hear them but not fully enjoy them. Read around on the thread, there were some people who did not like the Trio as much.
I really enjoyed the Sunset Catamaran Cruise, it was a nice touch to end the weekend. I went with Paradise Catamarans and got the drinks and food. The sea was a little rough and a couple people got nauseous, but then they went into a quiet cove area in Puerto Aventuras and served the food at that time.

how long did your dinner last? And how many people did you have? We are expecting about 40, so I'm trying to gauge the length. Also, how was the Mariachi band? We are thinking of hiring the Mexican Trio for dinner.
