Guitar Trio

by lynnehart

Hello -

I'm wondering if anyone has a local Tulum contact for a Mexican Guitar "Trio". Quotes are because I really don't care if its 1, 2, 3 or more guys. I am having a very small (20) wedding in a very remote, do it yourself location and most of the attendees speak spanish and love old romantic boleros. We're not looking for a mariachi, just guys with guitars who sing old romantics. The price I got when I was last there was $200 per hour and that seems just ridiculous.

Thanks for help! I won't be back into the area until one day before the wedding, so the ability to call or email someone to make arrangements would be excellent.

Thanks!!

Geesh, $200 per hour... that can add up.

You can look at the seccion amarilla for trios musicales or trovadores http://seccionamarilla.com.mx/ and guet quotes.

Trios are not cheap and the mayan riviera makes it even more expensive.

Depending on the location they can start around $800 MXP and up, unless you know some friends who know how to play guitar very well.

Good luck and congratulations on your wedding!

Btw, you can try leaving messages at expatriate's websites in the area to find if somebody knows somebody who knows somebody...

Good luck!!!

Thanks so much. Its hard to know where to look for stuff like that, and I haven't found anything on the internet (for obvious reasons) "trios" and trovadores .... either would be great! We're at a rustic/remote location inside the sian kaan reserve.

Location is part of what it makes it more expensive. If you find something and it happens to be in tulum, playacar, chetumal or even cancun, the final cost will add up. I think the music players would need to add the transportation cost and split the profit among the members.

I noticed music bit an interesting percent of my own wedding in mexico, music groups aren't cheap, so I really hope you can find a couple guys with a better price.

Let me dig in my contact list if there's somebody near you.

Travel Tips for Tulum

Great Little Town.

by CatInEurope

Playa del Carmen is the town located closed to the Mayan Riveira. It is full of energy! There is great shopping (souviners are significantly cheaper here than at the resorts), it has many bars and restaurants. The people are very friendly. I highly recommend a morning or night spent in town!

Wells

by Lady_Disdain

Wells - whether natural or man made - were necessary to store water for the dry period.

This well does not reach the water table, as the sea would make it brackish and undrinkable. Instead, it stores rain water from the rainy period.

Staying Overnight in a Cabana

by Kaspian

- Bag with a lock on it
- Smaller insulated bag for carrying drinks
- Something with lots of zipper compartments - Your bathing suit!
(I can't believe the number of people that end up in Tulum without this. Parts of the beach are nudist, so you may be alright without it.)
- Towel(s)
- Hat
- Sunglasses
- Shoes with toe covering
- Very light blanket - Sunscreen and lip balm
- Aloe vera aftersun (maybe Solarcaine)
- Band-aids and polysporin
(For your feet--they will get dinged from the underwater coral and from the rocky pathways)
- Immodium/Pepto
(Just in case, but I've never had any stomach trouble there.)
- The usual: toohbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, washcloth I'm not a photo expert, but notice how most of the photos on VT of Tulum look too dark? It's because Tulum is actually extremely bright, lots of whites and light greys and standard camera exposure/contrast gets screwed up . If you know how to compensate for that with film/filters, bring them. - Big bottle of water (maybe a few)
- Several small bags of chips (or something else with lots of salt in it to replenish salt loss caused by sweating)
- Bug/mosquito repellant
- Flashlight
- Candles/T-Lights and matches/lighter
- Battery powered travel clock (or wristwatch)
- Snorkeling stuff
- A big book to read Do not bother to bring electrical equipment. Most places don't have regular electricity. And if they do have lights, there aren't normal electric outlets.
If you get a cabana with a sand floor, bring something like zip-lock bags to keep your jewelery and small valuables in. If you drop something in the sand you may never find it again.
Many of the small cabanas don't even have furniture, so don't pack very much because you don't want to have clothes stacked in the sand.

Cenote dive. We drove out...

by hayward68

Cenote dive.
We drove out into the jungle to do a cavern dive at the Ponderosa cenote. It was such a cool experience as you are completely underground at times. The pic shows the entrance to the cavern that we dove in. You can see the rope which we used to guide ourselves underground. I was able to get a video of my dive which really has impressed my friends. Diving in the jungle was something I will never forget.
A one tank dive will cost around $50-60 US, and a two tank dive around $90-100 US. Two tank dives will usually include snacks in the price. Both include transportation to the cenote.
Most resorts will be able to sort out a dive for you or got to the local towns and dive operators will have shops which you can visit.

This is the 1 Km tranportation to Tulum Ruinas .

by Waalewiener

The picture shows it pretty good ,this is optional ,overprized ,you pay the same here for a short 1 km ride in this tractor pulled train as you paid for the busride from Playa del Carmen to the Tulum Ruinas.

$ 2 US dollar for a one way 1 km ride .
save your money and walk (is good for you hehe) ,unless you can't of course.
Just kidding it is money well spend ,just two bucks.
