    Do we neeed to pay for our guests to go on excursions or if they're optional do we just give guests the information and let them book?

      I have seen it done both ways!  Some people pay for all the guests to go as a "Thank you for coming" type of thing and others just arrange it and each guest who would like to come pays their own way.  Another option that one of the tour operators suggested was to pay for part of each guests excursion - so instead of it costing each guests $50, you pay $30 per guest so it only costs them $20 each.  This way they don't have to go if they don't want to, but they get a really cheap excursion if they decide to go.

       

      My parents were going to pay for all the guests to do an excursion as a replacement for hosting the rehearsal dinner - which is already paid for because we are at an all-inclusive!  So in our info booklet, we are putting that the excursion is compliments of my parents.

        Awesome! That's a great idea that won't totally break the bank!

          Thanks for all the info! I am staying at the Hard Rock and trying to determine when to plan the snorkel trip for. Does anyone know how far the La Barcaza is from that area? Also trying to decide whether or not to pay for it for my guests. I am hoping that I can the unlimited functions at my resport by meeting the minimum rooms number and then hopefully I can spring for paying for everyone. We are also trying to do a dinner on the beach as a welcome dinner with entertainment...Can't decide if I'd rather mak ethe dinner a little less entertaining and go for a fun day snorkeling or if my guests would prefer to stay on ground and get flamenco lessons and music at the dinner on the beach...thoughts?

            ok ladies DO NOT do the Tropical Storm tours!! They are not what is advertised...

             

            Basically there is NO private island you go to to have a beach party, AND the floating bar is a man in the water with a dang cooler!!! It was NOT worth the money, so please do not even waste your time.

             

            PM me if you have additional questions.
