    Thank you!


    It's $500 just to rent the space for a private event and that does not include the food or drinks for your private event.  I totally don't understand that if the resort is all-inclusive!!!

      500 doesn't seem bad. It's so pretty. Thank you for your help!

            The roof on one side of the Tequila terrace is about 30 feet high and there are no pools over the railings on the other side... hence the need to hire them to hang. You could bring lanterns and hang them under the one part of the tequila terrace that has a slatted roof. I saw pictures on here where people had done that. It works - but depending on how big your wedding is, would only cover a small section (maybe use as the dance floor?).

I'm aware of the extra charges for the kids plate and seats because we are well over our allotted 25 seats for our package. Any ideas or recommendations. The kids range from ages from 1-14. We are also aware of the Explorers Club s end core zone. Has anyone used any of the certified babysitters available?

              We had about 20-25 kids at our wedding ranging in age from 1-15. They LOVED the Explorer's Club and Core Zone. I ordered kids meals for anyone under 12 and 12 and over got to pick off the adult menu. Everyone seemed happy with their food and I loved having them on the dance floor. My brother and sister-in-law opted not to bring their young sons (2 and 4). They told us after that they deeply regretted it after seeing how great it worked out with the other kids. They were worried about leaving their kids with strangers but checked out the Explorer's Club and said that in retrospect they would have felt totally fine leaving them there.

                Mollyes, Thank you so much for your insight with the kids. I have been so worried about the cost of their plates and the food going to waste and also setting them up At the tables with the adults and then they don't want to sit still enough for the adults to enjoy the occasion. We were even thinking about taking some of the littler ones through the buffet and freeing them

                  Oops, happened again I never can finish a question or reply without getting send before I'm done, so I meant to say"feeding" them at the buffet if they weren't going to eat well anyway. We have parents who are opposed to using the Explores club because they have never traveled outside the country and will only be arriving the night before the wedding and won't have much time to check it out that day, plus we have to commit to the resort how many chairs and place settings to set up. This is my big stresser! Any additional insight is more than welcome!

                    Another question, beyond the wedding, what type of excursions did your guests seem to enjoy? Did they use the excursion desk at the resort, go into Puerto Morelas directly to book snorkeling, book before they came, etc... Is there a bus available to take into Puerto Morelas, did people use taxis or even walk down the beach to town? Any insight is appreciated.
