After our stay at El Tamarindo Resort, our next stop was El Careyes Beach Resort, also a member of the Mexico Boutique Hotels group, which is a bit more conventional and much more affordable than the exclusive El Tamarindo. Bonus: we managed to get invited to our first Mexican wedding!

Our oceanfront room at El Careyes Resort had a Jacuzzi in the living room.

Crashing (sort of) our first Mexican wedding

All of the guests in the hotel, except for us, were there as part of a wedding party celebrating the marriage of a girl from Guadalajara and a boy from Switzerland. Worried that we would be troubled by the music they planned to play around the pool until 4am, they simply (and graciously) invited us to the wedding – our first Mexican wedding!

We had a great time. The funniest part was the playlist for the first few songs after the bride and groom’s first dance which included The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and  Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” with everyone singing along with the lyrics perfectly.
