    I am relatively new to this forum...I've read a lot of posts about caterers and some of the pricing...some posts says you can expect to pay $20-$30USD for a nice meal (but they were posted a while back), others quote much higher prices $80+. I've gotten quotes from some caterers, and I am starting to wonder if the $20-$30 price range actually exists?! The quotes I've received are well over $40-50, once you add in the taxes.

    Does anyone have any info or recommendations on this?

      Hi there! I have to say- our estimate was higher than we thought it would be.
      Our menu falls in the $80+ category per head - but that includes hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour, salad course, choice of steak or fish and a sorbet course (which I think we are eliminating). That said- it also includes tables, basic linens, china, glassware, silverware, etc... did the quotes you were receiving include those items- I think that is where it can start to add up. I think you can find a caterer that can be flexible and will work within your budget- are you using a WC? I'm sure they would have recommendations based on what you are looking for.... :)

        Just to clarify my question...looking for caterers who's dinner with or without appetizer options, start in the $20-$30 price range (NOT including rentals). I know this is possible in other parts of Mexico...of course PV is a tourist area, but just wondering if anyone knew of anyone. Thanks!

          I would second the wedding coordinator recommendation. They can really help you find a caterer and then work with them to find something in your budget. They know who is good to work with/reliable and can help coordinate all of that - I found that its really hard to do that all on your own since it takes so long to get responses back from here for many places. It definitely helps to have someone there to help you :) If you are looking for an AMAZING coordinator/designer, check out Mishka Designs Puerto Vallarta Wedding Planners :: Bodas en Puerto Vallarta. Mishka has been AWESOME to work with and has worked within my tight budget. Her design work is fabulous!
