Hi, 

 

unfortunately I am not sure if the wedding at my current resort is going to work out. We still want to stay there, but the prices they are quoting are outrageous. What are some options in the PV area that aren't attached to a resort so we could travel there? my wedding is supposed to be in 6-7 months so i really need to start emailing asap if my current venue isn't cutting it!

What about las caletas for your wedding? You could stay at your resort but go here for ceremony/reception. It supposed to be gorgeous!!

Great idea Kim!

 

My friend married there last year and her pictures are fabulous!

She also had the sky lantern things (I think - she set something off in the air) and I know a lot of you ladies were looking to have those and couldn't!!

 

PS - read your other post.   So let me get this right - they are legally unable to set up your centerpieces so your friends have too, but they are charging $250 US for doing nothing? what? I don't fully understand that.  Sounds like a cash grab.

My cousin in law got married at Martoca Beach Gardens.. check them out, they were amazing for their wedding! I didn't go but my sister in law was their wedding photographer and said it was one of the best weddings she had been to. :)

Those fees are really what is going to hurt the DW business for resorts because more and more people are looking off resort. Las Caletas is beautiful, I have been in contact with James at Martoca and he seems really nice and able to work within whatever budget you have. He told me he could do a wedding for 50 for $10,000 - $50,000 just depending on the options! You could also look into restaurants that's what I am doing. We have chosen a restaurant in Bucerias that we love, it is within walking distance of where everyone is staying or a $4.00 cab ride!
