      how did you book your stay there? my initial contact was by filling out their form on the website (http://www.adventureweddingspv.com/) shortly thereafter, Nicole contacted me - she's the WC there (they also now have Kelley). after going back and forth with Nicole, I booked it with her via email/phone calls.
      did you use a wedding coordinator? only Nicole who works for Vallarta Adventures - there's no extra charge, and she's AMAZING! so is Kelley!
      what hotels are close to the port where you catch to boat to las caletas? oh - good question. we stayed at Dreams, we didn't want to be in town. but i did have friends stay somewhere that was close to the marina - walkable - Villa Del Palmar. there are a zillion hotels close by. Nicole could suggest something as well based on what you're looking for - or a good TA should be able to help too.
      hair, makeup , photographer? i paid extra for someone to come to do my hair at Las Caletas (most of the girls didn't do this, it was rather spendy). i had a friend do my makeup (kind of, long story), but you can have someone come do it. i brought in my own photographer - Leigh Miller. they do have people they work with though and can arrange it for you - many girls did this - it is extra $$ depending on what photography package you choose.
      any other info about this place? thank you for your help OMG - where to start. have you read all of our reviews and seen our pictures? i'd start there if you haven't already. if you haven't read all of the Las Caletas threads i'd definitely do that. i also have attaching some Q&A docs i saved - but they're already in the threads we have - let me know if you can't find them!
      This is an amazing place to get married - end of story! lol

              Have you checked out what the other girls suggested? That's what I did (well I booked before I found this site) and we just got back from a site inspection. It's gorgeous! And unbelievably simple, with Nicole doing all the set up stuff for you. As for hotels, if you look at the two marinas that the boat can pick you up at, one is the Neuva Vallarta marina. A three minute cab ride fromthat one are some great resorts that are all inclusive (food, alcohol, drinks, etc) and are right on the beach for less that $100 per night. I would suggest the Riu (fancier) or Samba Vallarta (more intimate). Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions....

                errr! way to many options. so far i know their is someone to take care the calestas thing. should i just talk to the wedding cooridator so she can suggest a few places to stay by the docking area like walking distance.

                i would like to use a local photographer is there anyone good out there?

                  Las Caletas works with a few different photographers and offers a few different photography packages for an extra charge: Photo Packages for Adventure Weddings in Puerto Vallarta

                    Nicole just contacted me and the only two photographers that they work with directly are Franco Gonzalez and Roberto Aceves. You can always find your own though.
