We're having a similar situation, but a bit less time in between. Our wedding is at 3:30, then we're having a cocktail hour by the pool bar where we'll have munchies and drinks from 4-5pm and a mariachi band. 5-7pm is going to be the issue for us. We decided we're going to keep the modified open bar open from 4-10pm. So if people want to just hang by the pool, socialize and drink in the afternoon before dinner they can do that. Otherwise, they can wander back to their rooms, go for a swim, do whatever.
I'll be interested to hear what others say though!

I worried horribly about timing too .. but once you get to the day .... nothing is about timing except when it's time to walk down that isle. After that it's party mode... have fun and enjoy...

Do not stress about it....if your guests do not want to join you for pics then they will entertain themselves at the bar!!

We looked into a boat cruise, but the cheapest we could find was $35 per person x 30 people... a little outside of our budget. I was really worried and upset. I then talked to some of our guests about the boat cruise (to find out what people thought and see if we should some how come up with the money) and they all said they would rather relax by the pool or ocean, some even told me that they are afraid of water and would not come if we booked a boat cruise.
So we have decided to take it easy and let the day unravel as it may... we are there to relax, may as well relax.
Since letting this go we have been very relaxed and relively stress free. We're getting married in a month and a half and we are both very happy, excited and getting anxious... no worry and no stress.
Enjoy your day!
