What to do with the ladies while the guys are fishing??

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm counting down the days until our May 2013 wedding at the Barcelo Maya. We've been to the resort once before and can't wait to return with all our friends and family.

 

My fiance would really like to go deep sea fishing with the guys one day before the wedding. I was thinking that this would be a good opportunity for me to do something nice with my mom, his mom, his sister and some of my girlfriends. The obvious choice is to do a "spa" day, but neither my mom or his mom are really into whole spa thing. I don't think they would want to do anything too crazy or adventurous (like zip-lining), either. I know they'd definitely like to see some of the ruins, but I'm sure some of the guys would like to do that too, so I don't want to go without them. 

 

I was racking my brains to think of something that everyone would enjoy, but I'm having a bit of trouble... So, I was hoping some of you may have some ideas! Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance! Don't know what I'd do without this board : )

What about a shopping day? Or parasailing, or catamaran/snorkelling? I agree I'm not into the spa day, So I'm thinking ill just hang with the girls by the pool or beach and grab a nice lunch or dinner together.

Honestly, I think laying out by the pool and just hanging out in a girls only atmosphere sounds FABULOUS!

Hanging out by the pool does sound fabulous, but for us when the guys go fishing (which my fiancee wants to pay for all of the guys to do), I am planning to ask the ladies if they want to travel into downtown Puerto Vallarta to go shopping and then I will buy them all lunch. 

 

Our resort is a short bus or cab ride to downtown, and a lot of the guests have not been to Mexico before, so I thought it's a great opportunity for us ladies to take all the time we want to wander the markets and not have the men complaining that we're taking too long!

Anya that sounds so lovely! I'm sure you'll add in a little shopping while you're in town and all the ladies will love it!

You could always go to Merida or Chichen Itza.  Or, if you're into the idea, but those are too far, I visited the archeological site at Tulum last weekend and it was very nice, but much closer-- about 45 min. from Playa del Carmen. Afterwards, there are some really cool open-air restaurants on the beach-side road running through the hotelera zone (Boca Paila Road). You could do a nice lunch afterwards.

I'm in the same situation, trying to brainstorm a girls activity when the boys are fishing. I thought about checking out the ruins or going into Playa del Carmen for a shopping afternoon, but neither of those ideas are grabbing me. Any other suggestions? Thanks!!

here are some very diverse options.......zip-lining at Xplor Park, ........., swim with dolphins at the interactive Aquarium, Cancun ........a lunch at the El Embarcadero rotating scenic tower, complete with shops + theater .....or book a girls' photo shoot session with one of the professional photographer studios here.......take some boudoir shots for your "glam portfolio"........you're all looking gorgeous anyway......tanned n happy :) would make for some great memories, captured happily ever after in timeless photos :)
