I will be sure to share whatever info. I get back from them.
I know it would make more sense to get them when you are down there, but my resort is far from PDC and I don't want to feel stressed like, I have to go to PDC to buy my wedding favours! I'd rather have everything organised before and take an extra suitcase down. Or in the case of Mishka designs... I belive they deliver directly to the resort. I am sure I won't be able to afford those...

Definitely cheaper to get them down there, but this also offers a little less stress, and the option to personalize. Here is the info I received from Mishka. Sorry if it is a little long, I am going to copy and paste the e-mail from her...
Maracas start at $4.50 usd each for a simple design, two-tone maraca. An example of that would be Lacy Romance or White Flowers in my blog. It's $5.00 (total order) for each additional color and $.25 per maraca for line of text (i.e. $.25 for date, $.25 for location, $.25 for names).
Fans start at $5.50 usd for a simple design, two-tone fan. The fan example we have on the internet is actually a $6.75 design.
You can either tell me what your theme is OR you can send me your invites, STDS, website, what have you and tell me a little bit about your decor and I can recommend a few ideas. We need at least two months to fulfill the order - we can do rush orders, although that, of course, costs extra.
Shipping to the Mayan Riviera for 20-30 maracas is around $40.00 usd. Shipping to Cabo is a little more expensive - for 20-30 maracas it's around $60 usd. We can ship to the States, but unfortunately it costs more to ship than it does to order the maracas and most of our clients aren't interested in paying so much postage. If you think you might still be interested, please let me know. We normally ship two weeks from the date of your wedding, in order to ensure it arrives on time BUT also so that the resort is looking for the shipment and that your wedding is current in their minds .
We also do shake me tags (for the maracas), name tags, place cards, escort cards and menus :).

I totally hear you! I am trying to be so cost effective...our resort is even further from Playa than yours!

Can you tell us which "smaller" stores you went to and where they are located in Playa del Carmen? Thanks!
