    Hi everyone - I'm trying to decide on a venue for my Nov 09 wedding and was presented with an option of having it at Casa Palapas in Nuevo Vallarta by Priscilla from Prisar. Let me say first of all that she has been very on top of responding to my emails, despite the busy season, and we haven't even signed the contract yet! She has set a very good impression thus far :)

    Anyway, back to my question. Has anyone ever been to Casa Palapas? Can you tell me how the interior is and how many rooms it has? It looks beautiful on the outside and has that right amount of Mexican charm that I've been looking for. Also, is it a reasonable distance from downtown PV and does the area feel overly Americanized or do you still feel like you're in Mexico? I'm only asking because I know that it's a much more recently developed area than PV and I don't want to lose that Mexican charm too much. I plan on visiting the area next month but I want to get as much info as I can before I go. Thanks!

      Hi Marie-Laine,

      My FI and I are also considering Casa Palapas and have been wondering the same thing. I've been able to see several exterior pictures (from this forum and from Prisar) but can't seem to find anything about the interior of the place. Hopefully, someone on here has some insight!

        Hi Heather,

        I emailed Priscilla last night about getting more info on the villa and some interior pics. When I hear back from her, I'll pass on the information. The exterior pics look promising though! I hope the interior is just as nice :)

          Hi Heather,

          Have you decided on a villa yet? I was able to get a few pictures of the interior and the outdoor palapas at Casa Palapas...I'll see if I can post it on here tonight when I get off from work. The interior is a little outdated...Priscilla actually doesn't like the interior too much and I agree--furnishing could use some work--but the exterior is really my main concern since the villa itself is too small to fit my family anyway. If I remember correctly, the villa has 5 bedrooms and is just a couple of villas down from a much nicer and larger villa that you can use for accommodations (this other villa does not allow weddings to be held there).

          Since I need to send out save the dates asap, I'm opting to just book the place before I actually see it in person. Otherwise, my guests may not have enough time to save and ask for the days off from work. That makes me a little nervous but based on what people have said about Prisar and Priscilla, I think it'll be fine. She seems to have good taste. I am, however, planning to visit the site soon after we book it so I get an idea of how much we need to decorate and to meet Priscilla in person to discuss other details--planning for that to happen either this month or next month. If you haven't already booked a place by then, I can give you more info on the place and area. Let me know if you hear anything more about the place and the area! :)
