    i am putting together a brochure for our guests so I asked Ana the same thing- she said "YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET MORE INFORMATION FROM OUR TOUR DESK: dreamsrivieracancun@amstarmexico.com". i chose to go with paradise catamaran for a sunset sail saturday evening (our wedding is friday)- kind of a way to say thank you and peace out- we need to begin our honeymoon!

    she also said at the resort "USUALLY WE HAVE:

    MEXICAN DINNER.- WEDNESDAY

    CARIBBEAN DINNER.- SUNDAY"


    she also told me that to put our chair sashes on for us they would charge 1 USD per chair which I think is completely ridiculous. i was thinking about tipping her when all is said and done (even though we are just having the ceremony, not a reception there)- highly unlikely now... seems like they charge for everything they can think of...

      I thought I would also mention that she said normally she doesnt require a contract, i think maybe because we arent having a reception there... which makes me extra nervous! although, she did confirm that one other wedding is scheduled on my date and it is 3 hours before mine, so that made me feel a little better...

      regarding the honeymoon package- i wanted to make sure we would get that also, since we are staying in the honeymoon suite for 7 nights... and this is what she said-
      IN ORDER TO GET THE ETERNITY HONEYMOON PACKAGE AS A COMPLEMENTARY THE GROOM AND BRIDE MUST TO STAY IN A PREFFERED CLUB OCEAN VIEW ROOM CATEGORY FOR A MINIMUM OF 7 NIGHTS

      so im confused, is she telling me that we will or will not get the honeymoon package? the preferred club honeymoon suite is of greater value than a preferred club ocean view right? sometimes i think she really thinks she is answering questions, but really she talks in circles.

        Did you already book with Paradise Catamarans? I have been looking into this for the rehearsal dinner and have contacted several different companies. Are you departing out of Puerto Morelos for your cruise or Puerto Adventuras? If I remember correctly the reason why I did not go with Paradise was because of the travel to Puerto Adventuras. He then told me they could go out of Puerto Morelos but that if the water is too rough they would have to cancel (too much of a risk for me). I just wanted to let you know about another company I found in Cancun. It is Marina Cancun and the sunset sail is $275 an hour for 3 hours. This INCLUDES open bar. They can also provide transportation for $350. My quote is based on 40 people, but they were by far the best price!

          If anyone wants a list of water activities I can email it to you. The resort uses Aqua World for snorkeling, dolphins, ect and I have an email with prices and transportation options. If you give me your email I will forward it to you!

                    Hi ladies!

                    Question on the cocktail hour - I noticed the cocktail hour menu selections in a previous post. Does anyone know what cocktail hour menu is specific to the Silver/Love package? I know the pricing is different for the Silver cocktail hour included in the Love package versus the Gold cocktail hour included in the Ultimate package.

                    Thanks!!
