    Hi there, I tried searching the forum for "off site receptions" but didn't see anything not related to a specific resort.

    We are getting married at the Grand Riviera Princess in December, and are now thinking about having our reception off site, at a restaurant, or possibly on a sunset cruise. Does anyone have any recommendations? Our group will be about 50 - 60 people, and we are looking to have dinner, an open bar, and an area for dancing and speeches.

    Thanks in advance!

        HI Angie,

        there are sooooo many endless options for off-site receptions in the area it is not even funny!

        If you are interested in a sunset cruise, you could try Paradise Catamarans (Sail, swim, snorkel, parasail, and enjoy the Mayan Riviera with Paradise Catamarans. Our private catamaran charters make every outing a memorable event. do seem to have done weddings before.

        Or you could check out some of the restaurants/beach clubs in Playa Del Carmen (i.e. Kool Beach Club, Casa del Agua, YaxChe to name but a very few). Cruise the Mayan Riviera forum and I am sure you'll be inspired by other brides unique reception locations.

        Good luck & have fun researching!

            Angie,
            One of my favorite places in Playa del Carmen is the Blue Parrot. its a neat little bar and restaurant right near 5th street and on the beach. it would be an awesome place for a reception!

                  Just wanted to price it out. At the GRP for a private beach party reception (dinner + open bar) it is $85 per person, and we thought we'd see if we held our reception off site if it would be cheaper. But actually looking into it, once you pay for set up/take down, open bar, dinner, centerpieces, etc. it is more than keeping it on the resort. So after all of this, I think we'll stick with the GRP :)
