      Marachas are a great idea for fun favors. We have seen them at many weddings. Although you will find them here in Playa, I would recommend ordering them online to save $$$$.

      Best wishes!!!!!

        If you can't buy Maracas in Mexico then there is a problem, LOL

        If someone can point me in the direction of a website that sells them in bulk and for cheap please do so! Anywhere I see they are $10 USD a pop and up, so buying in Mexico to me would be waaaaaay cheaper.

          I got this site from another gal on here: Amols' Specialty - Catalog - Traditional Maracas

          The only thing is, you cannot pick your colors, they are assorted. I have also heard that someone found them on 5th Ave in Playa for cheap, and they didn't have to cart them around! I'm not sure what I'm doing yet!!

            I just ordered some from this site:

            Discount School Supply - Decorate Your Own Wooden Maracas - Set of 12

            I'm going to paint them white or ivory and just stamp them with a starfish stamp and attach a ribbon to the handle. I wasn't expecting anyone to keep them as a souvenir, just a fun decoration for the table and something for them to shake. And I can see my friends and family not remembering to take them back to the room so I definitely wasn't going to pay a lot.

              I am not sure you can get much cheaper than that! They are super cute too! I don't mind that they are assorted colours. Adds to the tropical theme and I don't really have a 'colour scheme'. I want to use them as table favours and place cards all at the same time. I just don't know how easy it would be to cart down 40 maracas... and is it ok to just give each guest one, as opposed to a pair?

                I love this idea, and i love that you can paint them yourself (or buy the colored ones)!! Thanks for sharing.

                I think if you really wanted to, you could only provide one per guest, otherwise it would get a little more expense i guess....i was thinking about having them shake the maraca's to have the bride and groom kiss instead of using their silverware on their glasses.
