My resort is charging the following for entertainment:
SOLO GUITAR PLAYER $900
JAZZ DUO (2 HOURS) $1,000

Is it me, or do these prices seem really, really high? Especially the DJ! What is everyone else paying for these services?
Can you recommend any companies that could/would offer a better deal??

So now I need to decide, do I hire my own DJ and save money (not knowing how reputable they may be) or do I go with the expensive DJ whom the resort seems to feel is the best??
I don't know what to do....
I haven't even started with additional entertainment!!!

The prices are double if not triple from what you pay in Cabo, PV and Cancun, BUT you are getting married in Careyes which most of these vendors have to travel there and even stay over night. Also Careyes is amazing your guests will be blown away. We wanted to get married there, but it was over double when all was said and done from our proposal in PV.
I wish you the best. Your wedding will be amazing.

6 Piece Cuban $750/hr
DJ $600/all night

3 piece trio $500/hour
I hope this helps! I am getting married at Playa Fiesta.

I actually did contact Enlace and am just waiting for a quote.
I'll let you know what they say!
I'm getting sooo nervous about meeting with all the vendors this week!
