      Thx for the reply Kat and Andi!

       

      I'm still waiting to hear back from the company on this answer - I hope they can return my question soon!  While you seem to all know so much about Las Caletas, can I ask a few more questions?

       

      • Do you know the rain contingency plan?
      • Does the company pick up guests via catamaran (for the primier package) only from certain hotels or any hotel along the PV coastline?
      • Do you have a recommendation of where to have all guests stay?  From the posts I've read, it seems like Dreams is the popular place.

       

      Thanks so much for the help!

        Yes, there is a place on Las Calates where everything can be moved in case it rains. I think that someone even posted a picture of it in this thread! I will see if I can find it

         

        As far as I know, the shuttle can pick you up from wherever it is that you are staying.

         

        We stayed at Dreams (which was AMAZING!!!!!! I highly recommend it!!!!) and I know that a lot of other girls have too. I didnt do a ton of other research.. but we also thought about staying at the Riu and Crown Palace I think it was..

         

        Here are some links that my travel agent recommended when I was still looking for a hotel

          Kat - thanks for the VERY quick response! Wow, this info you are providing is amazing! 

          I sifted through about 1/2 this forum but 51 pages (at the time) was a heck of a lot to get through and I probably missed the rain contingency photos.  If you do come across them, please feel free to post.

           

          Again, thank you!

            Not a problem AT ALL! I am glad I can pass along some of the info I have! I hope it helps!

             

            Feel free to ask as many questions as you want! that is what we are here for!

             

            I was just sifting through it myself.. I know that I have seen pictures of it.. I just cant remember where. Maybe I will ask Kelley to send me some and I can post them here.

              um wait...on the bolded parts you guys are talking about two different things?

               

              The boat/catamaran does not pick you up from the hotel. You will either pick that up from the Nuevo Vallarta marina or the marina that is more near downtown PV (depending on what hotel you are staying at). 

               

              The shuttle to get guests from the hotel to the marina will pick up at any hotel yes. Also you don't have to get a shuttle. our guests just got in taxis and that was a much cheaper option.

                  But just in case you stay in Mismaloya region- ask if the catamaran stops to pick up there.  We stayed at Barcelo and took taxis to the marina, but then on the way to LC the damn catamaran stopped to pick up guests at our hotel.  I was like WTF??  I have no idea why/how that worked out, but just in case- wanted to throw it out there for people to ask about!

                    Thx Rachel - very good info to know about the Mismaloya area. 

                    We are thinking about Barcelo as a resort - how did you/your guests like it?  What kind of vibe was it? (we have a pretty wild group) We read on TripAdvisor people got sick from the food... how was your experience there?  One last question, how far/easy was it to get to the downtown area?

                      Paradise village in Nuevo Vallarta also has a Marina where the catamaran can pick up guests. We decided to stay here for my sister's wedding because it is more convinient. The guests can just walk down to the marina, instead of having to take taxis to the vallarta adventure office. This way we also ensure no one gets lost in a taxi!
