Fire Dancers or Mariachi Band?

Recommended Posts

I really think it would be a good idea to have some sort of entertainment at our Thursday night welcome party. Can you girls tell me if you think the fire dancers were more entertaing or a mariachi band? I also can't find the prices on here for fire dancers. Any other thoughts would be appreciated on how to make it a great kick-off to the weekend!

I vote for Firedancers!

In Cancun, I read packages start at $1,500 per hour.

 

Mariachi Band is $1,100 for 45 minutes but a Mariachi Trio is only $530 for 45 minutes.

 

I think Mariachi Trio would be a great intro and more relax so appropriate for rehearsal dinner. The firedancer would be awesome for the wedding entertainment.

Fire Dancers!!

 

Chances are that they'll be entertained by Mariachis at one or more restaurants while in Mexico, but not necessarily fire dancers.

My W.C. said that the firedancers show is "jaw-dropping". But it can be pricey..don't quote me but I think for a smaller group (maybe 3 or 4) dancers is around $1500 and the larger group (9 or 10) is around $2500...

Something like that. She actually recommended them over fireworks for our end-of-the-night finale at our wedding but I still think we want the fireworks instead. I don't want the firedancers stealing the show wink.gifha ha

Fire Dancers! We're having them at our reception after the ceremony & cocktail hour to sort of kick-off the evening, and I'm so excited! We are using the smaller group, for $1,300, because the really awesome group is touring in the States in November!

I agree with everyone else - the Fire Dancers!! We are having them at our Welcome Dinner, as well. We paid $600.00 for (3) 15-minute performances.

I don't know about prices, but I've seen tons of times both down here in Cabo and I'd recomend the fire dancers without hesitation. Mariachi is more mexican-traditional and unles you hire 10+ mariachis, it's not worth it, but the fire dancers are a true feast to the eye, you can just ask your DJ to play some mariachi music afterwards.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
