Agave Grill or La Playita?

Recommended Posts

I have eaten at Agave Grill. It is very Mexican... they make their salsa in front of you at the table... it is AMAZING!! They have a huge selection of tequila and the service is good. It is a very small and rustic restaurant... the only downside is that it doesnt have a view. I definitely recommend you try Barcelona Tapas for an amzing ambience and view. The guy who owns Agave Grill also owns Barcelona.... I have never heard of La Playita but I will ask around down here for you (I live in PV)

Never been to either but I would recommend Agave Grill just based on having worked with Bill (the owner as mentioned above) to set up our WD at Barcelona Tapas. He's very involved in his restaurants and the quality of food. The night of our WD he came from Agave Grill where he was making sure everything was running smoothly, then came and introduced himself to all of our guests individually. You won't be disappointed with anything he is involved in :o)

 

And yes, the view at Barcelona is spectacular!! If you have any questions about having your WD there I'd be happy to help!

Yeah... thats a really cool little place. Its really reasonably priced and the food is good. But if you are going out that far, you definitely should go see Mezzagiorno its the newest restaurant out in Bucerias which is very close to Sandrinas but the ambience is AMAZING. Its right on the beach/water front with a huge tree growing in the middle of the restaurant.

Bethtamar, are you planning your rehearsal dinner or are you having Kristin plan it? we are currently trying to find a place through DD to accomodate 90 people for a sit down/buffet dinner with drinks for a welcome/rehearsal dinner. but finding places can't stay within our $50-60/pp budget. any suggestions? thanks! we've looked at agave grill and villa Premiere for a cocktail and heavy appetizers but no dinner...

Hi Lori!

We are having Kristin plan our rehearsal dinner. We are actually having a small dinner for 25 (just the wedding party and spouses) and then we are inviting everyone to join us for welcome drinks and a salsa lesson! We have not decided where to hold it yet because my fiance's mother hasn't given us a budget yet, however, Kristin was able to find us options with drinks for under $60 a person! Where are you holding your wedding?

We are holding our wedding at Casa Salamandra, a private villa in nuevo Vallarta. Have you organized hotels for your guests? I'm trying to navigate that task currently.

I am trying to reserve rooms at the Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta but I am still waiting to hear about their deposit/refund policy! Paradise village is also in NV. Where are you thinking of having your guests stay?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
