    So happy I chose La Barcaza!!

    I highly recommend hiring Daniel and the whole La Barcaza crew for your wedding venue. I was nervous planning the wedding being out of country, but my expectations were completely exceeded! The boat, decorations, flowers, DJ, food, and photographers that Daniel arranged were amazing. The easiest and most stress free way to plan a wedding because they did everything!!! We just showed up and had the best day of our lives! Thank you so much to you all for giving us this most perfect day!!

    Dec 17, 2021 Wedding

    We had our long delayed wedding with La Barcazza on Dec 17, 2021. To begin with, they were absolutely wonderful with us when we had to change our date 4 times due to vivid restrictions. Daniel was a delight to work with. Our wedding was everything we had dreamed of an more. The setting is unique and beautiful and this is a truly a one if a kind experience. The decoration on the boat was beautiful and the food was absolutely amazing. I can not say enough about all the staff that we interacted with, they were second to none. We did add an extra hour onto our wedding and am glad we did, well worth the extra money and I would highly recommend.

The food was great as well as the secluded location on the beach for the ceremony. Being professional photographers we worked at La Barcaza many times and can recommend them without a doubt.
