    My fiancee and I would like to host a welcome party for our guests. Is anyone else doing this? If so, what are you doing? We need some creative ideas for a fun night in Cancun away from the hotel for about 50 people, ranging in age from 21 to 65. We're considering a dinner cruise but would also like to hear what other options might be out there for a fun evening event. Also, if anyone has any dinner cruise information that they could share, that would be great too! Thanks!

      We are having a joint bachelor/bachelorette party at Coco Bongo rather than a more formal dinner. Our guests range in age from 20's to 70's. A friend who got married in November did a catameran cruise for her group, that was fun as well.

            I had intentions of having a cocktail hour at my resort, but now with so many people booking alternative hotel arrangements we are now looking for a restaurant to host our get to gather. My suggestion would be the dinner cruise if you have room in your budget.

            Does anyone know of a great restaurant to host a gathering 25-30 people?

              Mardigras - Conco Bongo would be really fun! We were thinking of doing that another night. Have you looked into group rates or a group discount yet? We were there in April last year and overheard a big group negotiating their cover at the door but we would rather take care of the haggling ahead of time if possible. Also, do you know the company your friend used for the Catamaran tour? And if she was happy with them?

              Woodsylou - We are looking into a day tour/snorkel trip in addition to the welcome party so let me know if you find a good company. It's so hard to know who to use without being able to meet with them in person. If I come across anyone, I'll let you know too.

                We are also having a night out at the Coco Bongo as a "last fling before the ring" :) We are planning to reserve tables since our guests range in age between 20's and 80 - that way we will have an area to congregate rather than being all over the crowded club!

                The night prior to the wedding, we are planning to have a welcome dinner for all of our guests following the ceremony walk thru - basically a groom's dinner but everyone is included!

                  where is everyone booking their dinner cruise? The Real Resorts have a 55 foot yacht welcome cocktail cruise available, but it only allows 15 people.

                    Woodsylou, I need to move to the UK...that is amazing! Ibiza!

                    Yes we call our hen nights, bachelorette parties in the US.

                      There is a popular lobster cruise on the laguna with anold spaniard ship- you can take over the boat and make it private. It is not a booze cruise but somehting more formal.
