Good call Ann! Yep and the boat ride is like another 45 minutes from what i can remember :-)

I would go for the extra hour as well. I never wanted our night to end! Totally worth the money.

Speaking of pics, I see that Kate's back! Kate we need an LC quick fix LOL

    Hi girls!
    We went to Las Caletas for "Rythems of the Night." I thought of each and every one of you as I stood on that beach after dinner:) What a special place!
    I'll work on pics but they aren't that great in the dark

      yes there are SOOOOOO many candles...almost all of the light is by candles/torches. here are a couple pics I found, although I know there are more out there...

      Tara has a couple good ones here showing the candles
      Hey Andi, I am so glad we saw Vallarta Palace. It wasnt really on my list intially but my TA recommended it. We were treated so amazing there from the moment we arrived. Angeles worked out a one night rate for us to stay there last night too so we didnt have to come all the way down again from up north where we are spending the week. She had champagne waiting in our room and a special table at Mar Intimo with flower petals and a candle. It was so nice! We saw Dream PV and didnt like it as well and agree it is a lot further and more difficult to get to the marina. VP is perfect in that respect too: The RIU screwed up my meeting time with them so we didn{t see it and that is fine...looked too big anyways. I think we are def going to book VP if we can get a decent rate. She said if we have around 20 rooms booked we get free private functions as well so we can have a great welcome dinner there. Andi...where did you have your welcome dinner

      So happy we did the LC site visit and toured the hotels...couldnt be happier with the decisions we made.

      Cant find the apostrophe or question mark on this Mexican keyboard...sorry for the typing!!
      glad you are having a good time!!!!!
      don't forget that the party continues on the boat ride!
      oh yes it does!!!! haha I ended up on the boat with a bottle of tequila in one hand and glow sticks in the other dancing around the boat! then one of the LC staffers gave me a life vest and tied the bottle of tequila to the bottom of the life vest! party def continues on the boat back

        i was going to say the same exact thing! the things I would NOT skip on are the firedancers and the extra time.

        and for sure the party continues on the boat - heck it starts on the boat! we had trouble getting people off the boat both ways

              Loved it all except the port... they lined us up and put stickers on it. I know, they have to but way too touristy for me! But once we got there it was AMAZING. I thought my night settings on the camera were working but not so much with all of the flickering light. So bummed! I'll post what I can.

                I would love to be able to provide you with a timeline. Can you first give me a better idea of how many guests we are working with. The mode of transportation affects the timeline. So, for instance, if you take a Sailboat, you leave the marina at 2:30 pm…. If you take the faster boat, you leave the main marina terminal at 4:00 pm….. Ceremony, initially in both cases is at 5:30 pm – and dinner starts around 6:45pm……



                With the mariachis, I would have them start probably a little after the boat arrives, give your guests a moment to use the bathroom if they need to and freshen up, then start them. So they would play before the ceremony, after the ceremony and into dinner. Does this help



                Ceremony then usually lasts 15 minutes…..
                OK! So I think that I figured out why we have a different time line and why your ceremony starts so much earlier than mine. I was reading up on the different packages and I think that we have just booked different wedding packages and the time line is different because of that.

                I booked the Platinum..or "premiere" package. Did you book the same one? Or one of the other packages?
