Can you buy Marachas in Playa??

Recommended Posts

Thanks ladies for all of your replies. I figured you could find them in Mexico I just don't want to get there and be stressed about it. I did find a website its from Puerto Vallerta and they said they ship the maracas to the resort, I just have not looked into the costs yet. I am thinking I will probably order them a head of time so that I don't worry. I like the one site sent, but I would like to pick out the colors for the marachas and I am sure not crafty enough to make my own but that is such a great idea, maybe I can find a crafty friend. The website I found is mishkadesignspv.com, which I found on here awhile ago. I just love the look of the marachas on the reception tables and I also like the idea of shake for a kiss!!

We were in Playa del Carmen for 8 days back in December 2008. There were several souvenir shops along 5th Avenue that sells maracas in various colors (green/white/yellow/red/blue/orange/purple) and it was $1 a piece. The maracas also has "Playa del Carmen, Mexico" painted on them too. wink.gif

I am wondering if buying there in Playa del Carmen is cheaper in the end. I am going to have to pay for an extra bag at $35-50 per bag to haul all this stuff on the airplane. Maybe if I brought the ribbon and pre-made tags for "shake for a kiss" my BM can help me attach when we get to MX.

I am planning to pick up about 30 maracas after we check into the hotel in Playa del Carmen and put the tags/ribbons on. It should not take that long. smile72.gif

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.

That is such a fun idea!! I may have to consider that!

I just got back from Playa del Carmen yesterday. We found Marachas all along 5th avenue and they were all under $3 bucks. We bought ours for $1 at one of the stores there so you should really wait and buy them there.

I have sent a request for pricing, time requirments, and shipping details to mishka designs in PV. They were so nice looking! (If I was at all crafty, I would do the "paint them myself project" but I know I would just get irritated!)

 

I will be sure to share whatever info. I get back from them.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
