Buying Tiki Torches in Riviera Maya?!

Recommended Posts

My resort wants to charge $8/tiki torch for my beach reception, which seems a bit steep because i know here in Canada I can get them for $1.00... so does anyone know if they are easily found in Playa del Carmen, and how much they would cost?!

 

This is just me being cheap, but hey that is $8USD which is $10CAD now!

Hello ladies,

Tiki torches may be cheap or expensive.... it all depends on the quality of the tiki torches.

 

The cheap ones you can find them (not always because is a seasonal product) in Walmart, Costco, Sams or Home Depot in 12 usd. more less each but BESIDES you have to buy the citronel (not cheap) and prepare them (very stinky).  Those tiki torches will not always work because if it is windy, the tiki torches will not work that is why some hotels are using metal tiki torches that are working only with gas so even if there is a lot of win, they will work.

 

That could be the reason why some hotels charge more than others.

 

Hope it answers your questions!

Hey Ladies,

 

I was at Sam's Club this week and thought of this thread!  Here are the torches they had for sale.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
