For the most important day of your life, why not choose the most beautiful location in the world? Cabo San Lucas has lots of great options for those planning a destination wedding.
It is the most beautiful day of your life. Where do you want to spend it? How about someplace warm and sunny? You won’t have to worry about rain on your wedding day if you book your wedding in Cabo.
The easiest way to plan your wedding in Cabo is to plan it with one of the many resorts on the peninsula.
The Resort at Pedregal
The Resort at Pedregal is TripAdvisor’s number one ranked hotel in Cabo San Lucas. It is hidden behind the mountains, through the Do’s Mares Tunnel. This five-star luxury hotel comes with all the amenities you could ask for, including an indoor and outdoor pool laundry and dry cleaning service.
There are activities for children and a banquet room available as well that you may want to reserve for your wedding reception dinner.
At The Resort at Pedregal, you will pay top dollar ($650 and up), but you get top notch service. What continually sets this resort apart from the others that line the Pacific Coast? It is a 113-room location set apart from the rest of civilization.
If you can imagine renting your own coastal paradise for a weekend, you will come close to picturing what this looks like in person.
For dinner, book your party a sunset evening at El Farallon. This restaurant is carved out of the cliffs on the coast and serves some of the best seafood you will find in Cabo. It is voted number twelve in all of Cabo, but the atmosphere is unbeatable, and it is located right on site so your party won’t have to travel to get to dinner.
Esperanza, an Auberge Resort
Nobody wants a Plan B for their wedding day, so how about a second plan A? The Esperanza is the number two rated hotel in all of Cabo and the California/Mexico Baja Peninsula. It is the magnificence of the ocean view captured in a 57 room resort. There is outdoor space for weddings, and they can accommodate up to 125 guests. Treat yourself and your party to treatments at their award-winning spa which offers indoor and beachside massage service.
Where should you plan your reception dinner? Esperanza has easy access to four excellent restaurants. Their signature restaurant, Cocina Del Mar, serves delicious seafood dishes. You also have close access to La Terraza for Casual American cuisine or La Palapa for Mexican fare. The resort hosts an Italian restaurant called Las Estrellas. This gives you lots of possibilities to choose from as you and your party enjoy the Baja beach during this magical weekend.
Another very excellent ocean-view resort is the One&Only Palmilla. This is the number three resort in Cabo and, for the golf lovers among you, has a 27-hole golf course right on the property of this 173 room luxury resort. This is one of the biggest of the top resorts in town, but don’t worry, they won’t sacrifice the service.
Part of that service here involves a very fancy restaurant called SEARED, run by the Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The prices are high, but this steakhouse is incredible. It has a glass-walled meat cellar, and a terrace above that allows you the full vertical panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez while you dine. Suviche restaurant also gives an incredible ocean view and serves sushi and ceviche inspired by Chef Jean-George as well. For more traditional Mexican food, you can visit Agua by Larbi, open all day long.
If you have a large wedding, this is the place to go. They offer private wedding packages that include bridal spa treatments and beachside or South lawn wedding venues that can host up to 300 people.
Wedding Party Cruise
With so many seaside locations all across the southern edges of North America, why choose Cabo? Cabo San Lucas is internationally famous for being the site of a barrier reef and one of the most naturally diverse collections of marine life in the world. Scientists, undersea photographers, and those who love ocean life come from all over the world to experience the beauty of this place.
During winter months, the Sea of Cortez is host to families of Humpback and Grey Whales who come to reconnect in the warm waters off the coast of Cabo.
Because of this, your wedding experience, this incredible weekend would be incomplete without a cruise ship or yacht tour out to the reef for some swimming and snorkeling with this beautiful ocean life. If you would like to go scuba diving, the crew can train and accommodate you with that as well. If you are not a strong swimmer, book a sunset cruise for one of the most romantic excursions you will ever find.
If you want the most beautiful weekend ever, plan it somewhere sunny, away from the storms, and surrounded by the most brilliant, beautiful scenery you can find. Come get married in Cabo!
