Floreria Yolanda in La Paz.

Ok girls. I think I posted somewhere here that I am in the middle of planning a big party for my boss this weekend. We ordered flowers from Floreria Yolanda in La Paz.

 

They gave us a really great deal. They were ridiculously cheap!!!

 

We got tons of Gerberas from them. At $120 pesos ($12 dls) per DOZEN! YES! DOZEN!!! In Cabo we wre quoted $3 dls each! I went to pick them up yesterday.

 

Here are the issues: The gerberas looked great only a coupple damaged. Most were huge with some medium sizes. We ordered 30 dozen in hot pink and 20 dozen in both orange and white. The hot pink arrived fine but we only received half of the orange and half of the white. Good thing I told her that if her supplier didn not have enough of one color to make it up with another. So we have tons of the hot pink! Not a big deal. We did have to pick them up but they would have delivered witha an additional fee. At the prices they are charging it would not be a bg deal to pay an additional fee.

 

Here is their info: Maria Elena -owner

email: marieli19@hotmail.com

tel: 011 52 612 12 25420

I do not think they speak english

 

They were very nice but again have a backup plann if her supplier can't get you the exact product you want. give her options to work with.

 

BTW: she quoted me $180 pesos ($18 dls) for 10 white and green callas - great price. In Cabo I had been quoted $5 dls each.

La Paz is such an awesome city - I wonder why more brides don't get married there! Well I guessa I know because we were planning on La Paz at one point in time and they don't have a lot of places that do weddings it seems...

 

Anyway it's a great place - and obviously WAY cheaper!

Definitely way cheaper BUT there are some drawbacks.

 

Most hotels aren't as nice as Cabo. It is a CITY it is not as tourist oriented. Only some airlines fly into La Paz. It is cheaper to fly into Cabo. VERY HOT starting May 1st- Nov

 

PLUS: Incredible beaches, great diving, swimming, boating, nice nightlife- much more laid back than Cabo, mariachis, flowers, vendors etc... MUCH cheaper.

 

If I were to do a wedding in La Paz I would do it here. http://www.laconcha.com/

 

The Hotel is right on the beach in what is basically their own private beach. Plus right next door they have private condos that you can rent. They are awsome! 2 or 3 bedroom. The condo has it's own pool.

I think I had emailed them way back in the4 day when we were considering La Paz. I loved La Paz when we went there on vacation one year - it's so fun and the water is so warm... were were kayaking and two dolphins just swam right by us!

 

Anyway - sorry about the thread hijack!

YUp. Me too sorry!

 

I do love La Paz though! They also have some really cheap houses!!! I was offered a 3 bedroom house in a private gated comunity for $94,000 usd. Furnished!! It was the show house. It was the only one left!! The one in the web page is the one that is being sold. Two stories modern.

Wow! That's an awesome price - furnished too!

I was bummed to hear about that huge condo project that's been going in (maybe it's all the way in by now) on the peninsula sad.gif That is where we hgad kayaked to and lounged on the beach by ourselves and enjoyed being there. Bummer that's it's been covered over with a massive golf course/ condo resort thing - yuck!
