Canadians @ Playa Pesquero

Recommended Posts

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL RESORT.

The staff are amazing and love when canadians visit.

bring as much goodies as you can for the maids and special staff members (ie. toiletries, tagged clothing, kids toys)

 

you'll have a blast. I'm thinking about Holguin for my wedding too....

So I was just wondering if any of you prior PP Brides did a PreWedding brochure or anything along those lines?! And if so, do you have some PP info you could share?

 

I'm undecided on them. I'd need more information that I haven't come across.

 

Thanks!

I'm just finishing up mine..it includes information about the following:

wedding day timeline, currency, weather, excursions, small reminder packing list (passport, id, tickets,bug repellent, alarm clock, extra batteries etc.), informing bank you're going on vacation (so they don't freeze your credit cards/bank card), luggage restrictions....I think that's it

I'm sending out my luggage tags with the brochure.

Money: bring about 20 dollars in USD ones for tipping your maid... leave a dollar or two on your bed every day... with little nick-nacks.

 

don't bring an AMEX, or US bank credit card (capital one, etc....); they wont accept it. if they do, you'll be charged an 11-25% premium..... yep.

 

Currency for Tourist: Convertable pesos. it's almost 1-for-1.... 1 peso is like 1.10 cdn

We only paid in pesos, we were told not to bring US when I got married, so they haven't accepted it for a long time. There is an exchange place at the resort, or you can get some in advance through the bank like we did, but it takes the bank a little time to order it, so go a few weeks before you leave at the the latest.

 

Don't tip in US, the maids and staff can't exchange it, so its no good to them. Its best to tip in Pesos because they don't have to try to get it exchanged. The staff also can't exchange CDN change, only bills, so keep that in mind as well.
