    Can anyone recommend a good Mariachi band? would like to use them for cocktail hour...Dreams is offering one for $700/hr that seems a lot to me anyone else think so or is this reasonable?

          Tammy how long you use them for? were they worth the money? or should I just opt out for a dj or a trio or something like that?

            We used Mariachis Los Cabos for our cocktail hour and paid about $450 in the end. As you'll read from my review, their music was great but hiring them ourselves and getting them to the venue was an odyssey!

                okay I just found my email - they're $500 for one hour, $450 for two or more, and there are 8 members in the band.

                    These guys are supposed to be very, very good. I will be using them I think! I am trying to find email on costs. The costs given to me are more expensive as they have to travel to Todos Santos one hour from Cabo.
