How exciting Kristi!  What time on the 11th?  That's the day I fly in... so you know I'll need to hide in the bushes and spy on you a little! :)

Oh yes, and as for the deep sea fishing... i have never gone, but I have heard good things about www.pescamaya.com, however it's also good to know that deep sea sport fishing in January is supposed to be pretty bad (as in no catches), so you might want to prepare the boys for that.

I will be arriving at the Coba on Jan. 28, 2012 and my wedding date is Feb. 2!  I am doing the symbolic ceremony at the Tulum at 3pm (hopefully in the gazebo, although I am waiting for confirmation).  We are having our dinner at the Portofino restaurant followed by a private poolside reception for dancing, garter and bouquet toss, speeches, and cake cutting.  My wedding planner at the resort said the only cost for the poolside reception is $210 usd per hour for the DJ and $5 usd per person per hour for the special cocktails bar.  I am still waiting to hear if there are tables, chairs, or decorations provided for the poolside reception...does anyone know?

My husbad and friends did a deep sea fishing trip on 12/2/11 it was not worth it. They hooked into one right before their time was up and it ended getting free. It isn't a good time of year to go. There was 10 of them for 8 hrs and caught nothing....

For 2 hours (national bar) it was $29 per person and for 3 hours it was $41 per person. I know we payed $1700ish for ours. They only charged me four half of the children not all 6 of them.

I brought the lanterns though, they had nice candle centerpieces, lights and balloons.

Lyzzie33:

Thanks for the photo!  I was wondering if I needed to bring candles, etc. for centrepieces, so it's nice to see that they have them!  I still plan to bring rose petals and sea shells to scatter around the candles.  What did the candle centrepieces look like? I'm hoping for glass vases with pillar candles in them or something along those lines.  Even if the dinner happens in one of the restaurants, do they automatically provide the tables and chairs for the dancing reception or do you have to ask for them?

I would be happy to answer your questions! You will not go wrong getting married here.....the service and the employees are absolutely wonderful! Food is excellent! Harlequin and Don Pablo are our favorites! Good luck planning!!! Heather Violet
