HI MarriednMex!! That is the date I tried to get!!!!  Hahaha! When did you reserve---I just got engaged about 2 weeks ago so I am behind on most planning--though it is still working out!  We decided on Monday the 18th so we are right after you.  Wow!  80 people, 39 rooms!!  We decided to not do all-inclusive for guests so we will be at the Marriott.  Undecided for honeymoon---have you chosen?  Best wishes!

I will ask this other company about the tax and whether or not they're allowed to go into the marina. We're departing from the marina in Nuevo Vallarta, I'm not sure if that makes a difference. 

Hi,

 

I'm getting married on Nov. 21, 2012 and just settled our contract with Las Caletas and we were charged $13.50 per person plus the $2 marina tax, so it is actually $15.50 US you are paying for transportation :(  They have actually increased the prices for a lot of things since I was sent a price list in June 2012!

Hello,

 

I got married last year in June and was stressing about the transportation also. Two things we did...we stayed at the Westin and so did all of the guests. They sent the boat right to us at a small Marina right at the end of the driveway at the westin..didn't have to pay for a ride there or back..so if you stay in that area..Westin/Melia...something to consider. Also we did a welcome dinner..and the hotel just called us cabs for all of us. Some were vans. I think it ended up costing me $200 total for everyone to get a ride to River Cafe downtown and back. So it was great...just some thoughts for the budget friendly brides.

Thanks Choeft21! Wow, that's a nice alternative to get picked up right at your hotel, we're too far and it's way too late for us to plan something like that. 

 

Regarding the permit and marina fees:

Superior Vallarta Tours got back to me and answered my questions. They told me they have all the permits they need (it's similar to the permits taxi's need to get into the airpot). She also told me they're registered with the Mexican Department of Tourism and even gave me their registration number. Regarding the port fees -she said it only applies in the marina in Puerto Vallarta. The marina in Nuevo Vallarta is in a different state and there are no fees there.

Hey HappyBride13-

 

We booked over a year and half ago!  My fiance and I have been together for awhile and always said we would get married on President's Day Weekend 2013.  We booked early so we could make sure friends and family could save for the trip.

 

We aren't doing a honeymoon after our wedding. We are going for a full week for the wedding and we have a 2.5 year old and our lil man will be 6 months when we get married and it was too much to ask family to watch/travel back home with our kiddos after a week of partying!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
