I'm a newbie so I don't know how to use all of the icons and functions yet so please bear with me. Anyway, I'm getting married at RIU Vallarta in November and was wondering if anyone had been there and what their thoughts are on the place. Also, does anyone have a list of fun things to do in the area? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am a Riu Jalisco bride (Riu Vallarta's neighbor) and I'm getting married in October. I've never been to either of the Riu's in PV but I think you will be pleased. There are plenty of reviews on trip Adviser (both good and bad reviews).
Have you been in touch with the wedding coordinator yet? My WC is Andrea and so far she is great. Which package did you decide to go with?

I have been to a couple of RIUs but not RIU Vallarta nor Jalisco. Overall, I really do like the hotels. We are actually honeymooning at RIU Palace in Cabo for 7 days because we will have been in PV for 6 days.
Anyway, Andrea is our coordinator and she seems very nice and acommodating. Right now we are going with the Caprice package, but we may downgrade to a less expensive package and get rid of things we don't need and just add extras of other things that we want/need. Does that make sense? The way it is set up, we don't pay for it until we get there and make a final decision on the package we want. Are you doing a reception after the ceremony? Indoors or outdoors?

Yes, the caprice is nice. We were going to do the caprice but I opted for getting some other extras instead so we moved to the Royal package. I guess we'll see how it goes. Are you using Aldo Tovar as the photographer? i really like his work.

We do plan on using Aldo Tovar. He does have nice work.

We are having a hard time with Andrea, I sent her an e-mail with 5 questions and a request to set up a meeting and she only answered one question. Kind of frustrating.
Are you ladies doing a reception at one of the resturants and then using the bar? We are doing the Flamingo Steakhouse and then renting the bar for dancing and drinks.
Are you both getting married on the beach? Have you been given options for decor?
