    is this a MUST do or something nice to do? see i rather spend the money on a day before the wedding event.e.g. a dinner cruise or dinner......but we cant do both.....We are having a Luau (instead of brunch) the next day...no rehearsal dinner...nothing to rehearse....so what Is the rule on this? What did you do? What are you doing?

      Were having a small wedding and we weren't planning on anything other then the wedding and wedding dinner. I'm sure we will all go out to a club the night we get into cabo but it's "every man for him/her self"

      i like to have all that stuff planned for...i think it just makes it easier for guests as a courtesy...even if it is just coordinating where people meet to take a caravan of taxis (but they pay) at least you are giving them some direction.

      one of the reasons i chose an AI because i wanted all the events to be at one place to make it easier on everyone....the few events we did off resort (sailing cruise, fishing) were kind of cluster-f*cks...

        we are just now trying to figure this out for our welcome dinner. i think we are going to arrange group transport but ask everyone except our bridal party to pay for it at $10 roundtrip. some people are going to take their rental cars but i bet most people will prefer a bus.

            since a shuttle was 12 bucks per person, instead I am putting a little envelope of pesos in each welcome basket. It will be about 10 american dollars. And I will have a picture of a cab on the envelope and it will say something like, here are a few pesos for cab fare, good night : )
            Do you guys think that is tacky or totally unneccessary? Its sooo much cheaper than a shuttle because a cab ride would be 10 bucks TOPS for like 4 people instead of 12 bucks for each person

              i think that is a great idea too, but my experience in cabo is that cabs cost a lot more than that...depending on where you are going

              i think she is figuring $10 per person with 2-3 people sharing a cab...$20-30 will get you most places...

                I think it's a courtesy but not required. We are debating right now about doing the same thing for our rehearsal dinner. The other thing is we don't know how many people will actually stay at the hotel - so it's hard to know if we'll even need a bus!
