    Just an FYI- the bonfire at Dreams will be fun, but if they are referring to the fire pit at the Barracuda Bar/ Barracuda Beach area, it's a small-ish fire pit with rocks around the outside and a gas flame in the middle- probably less than 6 feet across. Fun, yes- impressive as the Riu bonfire- not nearly. We debated doing this, especially since the Barracuda bar is right there, and we could have done a fun dinner- but we just decided we would want something more formal. I'm looking forward to seeing someone actually do it there though!

      Oh good to know, thanks! I haven't seen the Riu bonfire, so I guess I won't be disappointed! lol. I'm not concerned about it being a big impressive spectical though, I just want it to be more casual. Thanks for the heads up. It's tough to imagine how it's set up - but I'll check it out in August and take lots of pictures! :)

        I'm not saying that it's not nice (we debated doing it!), it just doesn't compare to the Riu- I wanted to make sure you weren't expecting that! Actually it probably would be really nice with the Barracuda bar right there with it's swing benches- so cute!

          We are paying for everything ourselves. I figured my in-laws and parents are paying enough just in travel expenses....and, I am sure they are going to have to end up helping our siblings with travel also.
