    Hello all! My fiance, Brendan and I were looking into Las Caletas for our wedding next year. It turns out my grandmother is very ill (was diagnosed with cancer 2 days ago) and I feel we need to stay local. We ultimately decided to have the wedding here in Brooklyn next November. (11/1/200 This all happened within a few days and I didn't just want to ignore the fact that I joined the forum. I was awaiting approval.

    I'd like to talk about Las Caletas for those brides who are having it there. Brendan and I went to Puerto Vallarta 2 years ago and we had the most romantic, intimate, fun time we ever had! We literally cried when we left! We did the Rythym of the Night tour to Las Caletas and had dinner there on the beach. It was so beautiful. We fell in love with it. Great choice for a wedding. The food was good and the atmosphere...priceless. It was unforgettable. This is a great choice for a wedding. The sunset, the stars at night. Just amazing. I may not go back there for my wedding but I will definitely go back one day.

    In downtown Puerto Vallarta, I'd like to recommend El Panorama restaurant. The view is amazing and the food was excellent. It is high in the hills (the cab ride was so much fun) The sunset, breathtaking. It overlooks all of downtown PV. When it's dark, you see all of the lights. There is also a photographer there to take your picture while the sunsets behind you. I believe her name is Marisa and she sits there with her mother. They were great. I tried to attach those pictures but they seem to be too big.

    I would also recommend Si Senor. Excellent authentic Mexican food. Service was so welcoming. Beautiful decor and the margaritas...yummy.

    We stayed at a timeshare in Nuevo Vallarta so I am not familiar with the hotels and resorts.

    Thanks for your time and maybe I can still be a part of this forum even though I am no longer having a destination wedding. Lord knows I still need help! :)

      Welcome Melissa! Sorry to hear about your grandmother and I hope she gets well :o( You are making a good decision and you can always visit Las Caletas again. I married there this past June (also after having been on the ROTN tour) and have nothing but amazing things to say about it. Priceless is a great word to describe it. BTW you can always rent it out for a vow renewal or a kick ass anniversary party!

      We can still help you plan your Brooklyn wedding, I'm in Cali so to me Brooklyn is a destination wedding...lol We have some awesome NY members too that I'm sure can help if you need it. Happy planning :o)

        Melissa - I am sorry about grandma, that has to be tough. I'm sure you're doing the right thing for you and your family.

        I was married in June (right after Jamy/starchild!) at Las Caletas. Andn you're right - it was absolutely THE most amazing experience. It was everything we were looking for ... we had never seen Caletas until the day of our wedding.

        You could always go back there for a vow renewal!

                    Paul and I want to go back just to go on the day tour, or the Rythems of the Night - and we will, hopefully soon! If you're interested - I have all of my pictures in the links in my siggy.

                    There are quite a few NY gals on the forum - they may or may not see this thread since it's titled "Las Caletas" (and that's OUR specialty!) so if you do have some NY questions, maybe post a new thread here ... http://bestdestinati...um/mainland-us/
