puerto vallarta (marina area)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to this site and im not sure if I am posting this request in the right locations or not  ;) Hopefuly I am!! Anyhow, I am planning my wedding out in Puerto Vallarta in the beginning of March and I am still in search of a venue.  Here is my story.  My guests and I are taking the 7 day mexican riviera cruise and we will be in PV from 8am-10pm.  We will not need hotel accomidations sense we will be returning on the ship that evening.  I would like to find a place not to far from the marina where the ship ports that way I dont have to worry about being late when we return to the ship :) So far I have spoken with the Krystal and Villa Del Palmar.  I feel confident in both locations from the planners that their locations offer but my problem is, I have never been to PV and I wont be there until the day of my wedding!  I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the marina side or if they have any insight for me to help me make my decision.  Im running out of time!!!

Hi, If it's ok with you I would like to know how was your overall experience? Was the food good? Do they allow you to bring your own liquor? Were you able to negotiate the price down a bit?  Was the sand a problem, I know they out those mats but do the heels get stuck? Also, how far is the hotel from downtown PV? I am thinking about the Mayan Palace located in Nuevo Vallarta, This is the one you wedding was held at right? I just want to be cautious about the venue.Thanks for your time and your wedding was beautiful.

I had my wedding and reception at the Westin PV. It is in the Marina. The cruise ships dock about a mile away from the entrance of the Marina itself so you would probably have to take a taxi of some sort to get there.

 

Our ceremony set up and reception was great! Food was good and the hotel has wedding coordinators on staff that help you with everything.

check out the Las Caletas thread... that is my suggestion anyway

http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/51931/las-caletas-couples-post-here-all-lc-brides-please-read-1st-post-red-text

 

there are a couple of cruise brides coming up soon. Las Caletas is an excursion that your cruise probably offers.

 

Las Caletas is a private beach about a 45 min boat ride from the PV marina. I know a wedding could be done when you are there and like I said there are a couple of other cruise Las Caletas brides around here who could probably give you more info...good luck!

What sort of venue do you want?  You could save money if you stayed away from a hotel and used a private venue - not to mention it would be cool to use a non-hotel space.  Just a thought. How many ppl are you having at the wedding?

I wanted more of a private ceremony, still beach area but not so viewable to the public.  I guess i am pretty much open minded in the end, i just want to make sure my ceremony and reception are in the same venue.  The area has to be in the marina area because travel could get complicated.  I love the private island idea but with us being on a boat for 7 days i dont want to go put them on another boat. :(  Im planning on having 50 plus so far.  Did you have some suggestions?

you should really check out Las Caletas then! It is a private beach that is only accessible from a boat ride that you take from the marina! I  bet it would be perfect for you!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
