    If you had to choose between Xcaret and Xelha to do with a group which would you recommend.?  I figured FI and I can go to both since we'll be down there for 14 days but our guests will only be there for 5 days for the most part, I am looking for an awesome recommendation to give them.

     

    Thanks

As I'm from the uk we do not have the same inclusive trips but ones we have enjoyed in the past are xcaret, coco bongo, xel ha and akumal beach to swim with turtles. We love them all but everyone is different. Let me know if you have any questions about these.

      I've been to Xcaret twice and we loved it- the underground rivers that are a natural lazy river are awesome!

          Have any past brides used the Violinist, I am having a hard time picking songs from the list they provided me. Can any of you send me your Ceremony song list?

           

          Thanks,

            Good question nabreu7! 

             

            We just sat down this past weekend and figured out the main songs.  I'm not sure the official names but the songs that are for when everyone is walking in and the processional exit song and first dance.  Are there other songs I need to worry about?

             

            Entrance song:  Siege of the Madrigal - His mom thinks this is too sombre but I don't hear it.  If anyone youtube's this and feel that way, let me know

            Processional:  Marry Me - yes, it's a cliche now but I still love it

            Exit song:  I have no idea.

            First dance:  Billy Joel - Just the Way You Are

                  Hi Ladies !

                   

                  getting married Aug 20th Moon Palace ...

                   

                  wedding coordinator emailed today to make changes to our plans:

                   

                  We had a dinner reservation at Barracuda ( Steak House on Sunrise Side) and now she says they are unable to accomodate us.

                   

                  she has reccomended the Caribbean Resturant.  Anyone have any thoughts on this place ?  It has a set menu that we pick main entree...

                   

                  A little disappointed about the Barracuda , and I am open to other suggestions. 

                   

                  We prefer not to do the buffet only because we dont want our guests waiting in line the majority of the time.

                   

                  Thank for your help in advance!

                    seasidebride - El Caribeno is delicious. It was our favorite restaurant. You can meet upstairs on the terrace for drinks beforehand or go up there afterwards. We went to Barracuda our first night and there was a long wait, some of our meals didn't turn out great either. I think you ended up with a much better reservation.

                      I would suggest a reservation at Arrecifes they have a great terrace location for your private party or if you want (or if the weather isn't great) you can sit inside & the area they set you up in is pretty private.  You do have to go to the buffet line for the salad (but I've never seen a long line there), so your guests would just have to get up one time.  Otherwise all the meats & then desserts are brought to the table.  We had a wonderful experience there, and your guests wouldn't be limited to one entree.  The first time we went to Moon Palace we loved the Caribbean Restaurant, but the last time we went it was our least favorite dinner.  I'm sure you'll have a nice dinner at either place though.
