    Hi all! Trying to decide on which to use...the Spanish Trio, or the Mariachi. Can anybody explain what the difference is? My wedding is at the Riu Palace so I was also wondering if the Trio/Mariachi band they use are any good?

      I think a trio would be all string instruments. Usually a mariachi consists of at least two violins, two trumpets, one Mexican guitar, one vihuela (a high-pitched, five-string guitar) and one guitarrĀ³n (a small-scaled acoustic bass).
