  1. Rancho pescadero is definitely very nice. I went there last week for a sunday brunch, nice but out of the way. Cool mexican modern decoor. There are some really cool places in Todos Santos now. We went to this really cool new sports bar... saw all the olympic events. Very old cantina vibe cool old mexican movie posters on the walls. Perfect place for a bachelor or bachelorette party or even a welcome dinner. They serve THE best shrimp stuffed chiles. The place is called La Garra. They have wifi and I think their email is lagarrats@yahoo.com The Todos SAntos Inn also has a very good new mexican restaurant... Landi's. It is very good.
  2. Hi Girls ... so there IS a florist in Todos Santos. it is where the fake flowers that someone already mentioned. You would need to go in there in advance like 2-3 days and request flowers ... they will order them. Personally I would do the calla lilies they are GORGEOUS!! They are in Pescadero only 15 min. from Todos Santos. For hair you might want to contact Sarah Rutowski. She does incredible highlights ( i have long hair and it was only arround $50 dls!!!) her cell in mexico is 044 612 118 3492 if you are calling from the states it is 01152 1 612 118 3492. she has email but I do not know it.

That is right... right now is actually a great tme to have a wedding in Mexico. The exchange rate is great. Basically, if the prices quoted to you are in pesos and you pay in pesos onsite (ie. at a restaurant or for that cute hat you have to have) you are going to get what is basically a 20-35% discount just by paying in pesos. ie. 2 months ago I bought a hat in Cabo for $100 pesos = $10 dls Today for the same hat $100 pesos = $7 dls !!! So if you are smart get quotes in pesos NOT dollars!! Bring your debit card with you and pay in pesos onsite after you get a great exchange rate. Todays exchange rate in Cabo was $13.47 pesos to the dollar. Last friday it was $13.87.
  4. there is a calla lilly grower north of cabo!! My wedding coordinator mentioned it to me. You could probably buy really cheap. Wedding coordinator Happy Moreno reservations@alegriainn.net I´m sure she would help
  5. You will also be able to find them in Playa del Carmen easy. They sell them at any of the "ferreterias" or hardware stores. They also have them at "todo por un precio" everything for one price (like a dollar store). Mega or Soriana grocery stores will also probably have them.
  6. Basically NOT a good thing to mix your ipod with a PC and a Mac computer try to avoid this as the ipod gets "confused once it talks to a PC".
  7. Hi! AeroMexico is one of the OLDEST airlines in Mexico. They are very good. Comparing them with other Mexican airlines they are probably the ones that have the most expensive ticket prices. They are consistently ontime and I have never had problems with luggage getting lost. That doesn't mean that it doesn't happen!! You should ask about the cost of upgarding to a 1st class ticket. I think last time I did it they charged $50 dls for this then gave me and Hubby shrimp cocktails and free drinks during the flight.
  8. Thought you should all know there is now a Walmart and Sam's club in Cabo! I went in and it is definitely a Mexican version of what we have at home. They did have some really gorgeous vases. They ranged from a coupple of dollars to $20 dls. The $20 dls were for some really huge cillindrical clear glass vases. They had some pretty colors and shapes too. Thius walmart is also a Supercenter store so it is a great place for food shopping. Their produce was good. Just another place for shopping. It is located just before you get to Cabo walmart and Sam's club on the right. If you are coming from Cabo you have to take the new overpass to get to it. No signs so confusing. Stay to the right and right after the overpass you will see the right hand turn to get up and on the overpass.
  9. Here is one web page that I found. Hope it helps. Do you have your Padrinos? It is tradition that the padrinos buy those items for you. http://www.weddingarras.com/index.htm
  10. another option is that you wait to get them in PV. there will be TONS of places there to get them. The mercado being one of them. But if you are like me I wouldn't be able to wait

I found the flowers being sold on the side of the street. You might want to email my coordinator, happy Moreno, she should know as she was the one that originally mentioned the farm to me but as I had Roses I neverreally asked. You can email her at happymoreno1@yahoo.com She is great and is usually happy to help.
  12. Kendra- Just a quick heads up...... there is a calla lilly farm north of Cabo. they have the most gorgeous Callas and they are cheap! I got some last spring for $15 dls a dozen- they have the mini's and the larger callas.
  13. Cabo is definitely HOT in august... but just let everyone know and be prepared. You should not have any problems with rain or hurricanes... the worst time for them is late August and all of September. Congrats!!
  14. I just looked at the hurricane path and KIKO is not slated to become a hurricane until tonight. I think that there may be some rain in southern baja on Monday and Tue. But I think that it will be gone by the 28th. You also have to remember that this time of the year it almost always rains every afternoon in southern Baja... the catch is that it mostly only rains in the mountains. GOOD luck! I really do not thing there is going to be a problem.
  15. thanks ! Yes, I'm definitely checking it out.
  16. Thanks girls. Obvously money is a issue but we are willing to spend. It IS worth it to me. We will have him for 2 weeks. about 10 days in California. WE will be definitely be doing Sea World, disney and maybe leggo land. It is a lot but we will see how it goes.
  17. thanks! you feel so helpless in these situations and there is so little you can do to offer suport. thank god the cancer was caught early and the chemo is jus preventative.
  18. Long story short . I need advise/tips on a disney vacation! My sister in law was just diagnosed with cancer and she is having her first chemo tratment later this month and we would like to take my nephew away so he is not arround her while sick and that way she and her husband are not worried about him. DH & I have never been so need all the help we can get. Ricardo is 4 and loves Mickey, donnald and goofy so we thought it would be a perfect thing for him. Thank for all your help in advance!
  19. I did drowned roses- Here are some other pictures of center piece options my coordinator sent me> I have more on my home computer.
  20. It sounds like Cabo is fine- they had major rain and wind but has not done major damage. You can see posts from locals on the web page I posted earlier. You should be fine on the 15th.
  21. Henriette has definitely formed into H-1 and will be hitting between Cabo and San Jose del Cabo and comw out of La Paz. It is set to hit land in the Cabo area today arround 3pm
  22. Hubby and I have done it several times. No problems. Just drive safely and take your time!! Tips: cooler full of sodas, chocolates and cookies. When anyone stops you. Military stops - I think there are about 3 or 4 down the baja. We always act very dumb and offer them a snak or a drink. Poor guys most of the time they are very young and are camping in the middle of nowhere for weeks. They are harmless they will ask where you are coming from and where you are going to. They may ask you to get out of the car and trhey may search it. They just look under seats etc... Not a big deal and nothing to get exited over. More info and tips on this web page www.bajainsider.com We go on the first day to Ensenada (4hrs +/-) or San Quintin (5-6 hrs +/-) or El Rosario (6-7 hrs +/- this is my favorite) spend the night there. Times will depend on what time you cross the border. Best times to cross any time between 8-11 am as most people are trying to come across from TJ to SD. Another option is going through TECATE to Ensenada, this way you do not go through TJ. The road is a two lane highway. Some people like to do the TJ route because from TJ to Ensenada there is a 4 lane highway. It is a toll road so be preared with change. They do accept dollars. I do not remember how much it was. The road from El rosario to Guerrero negro (5-6 hrs) is pretty desolate and I do NOT recommend you STOP to help anyone. Gorgeous scenery. You can make short pit stops but if a car stops get in your car and drive off. I have friends that were held up by someone that was asking for help with a broken down car. This was 5 years ago. I normally do not like to spend the night in guerrero negro and have gone all the way to Santa Rosalia (from guerrero negro 2-3 hrs) or mulege (from santa Rosalia 2 hrs). Right before Santa Rosalia there is a huge mountain that you have to drive down be careful just go slow. There are lot's of turns. If you look to your left you will actually see a geiser!! You can also drive to it. I think the sign says Hydrotermal something or other. Mulege is gorgeous. Very small town slightly inland that borders a river. There are several small little Hotels. After Mulege there is Loreto (2 hrs ) Gorgeous Beaches right after Mulege with small huts for rent in gorgeous small bays. Cristal clear waters!! I love to spend a whole day or nights there. From Loreto to La Paz (5-6 hrs) then to cabo abot 2 hrs through Todos Santos. It is a fun and very scenic drive. Make sure you fill your tank at EVERY gas pump you can. You never know if the next town will have gas or not. I usually do Ensenada, San Quintin, guerrero Negro, Santa Rosalia, Mulege, loreto, Constitution, La Paz. Let me know if you have any more questions.
  23. Tropical storm Henriette. Looks like it is definitely going to affect Cabo. http://www.bajainsider.com/weather/h...nriette%20.htm
