    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 ha 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.

                      I think fire dancers too! I am looking into the same idea for my wedding in Kauai . . .
