          I am trying to decide between Dreams and Riu. I like the fact that Riu is closer to downtown, that way my guests can get around easier. I have never been to Cabo, is being closer to downtown Cabo a good thing or not? I am not sure about having the wedding at the resort or finding a location off the resort. Dreams sounds better if we want to have the wedding at the resort. Any suggestions!!! It seems a little overwhelming right now:)

            Welcome Catherine!
            I'm a Cabo Dreams bride, so I'll share what my opinion is of Riu and Dreams because those were the two places I was primarily debating between.

            Some things to consider when deciding between these places are:
            ~How many guests will you have? Dreams is a smaller resort than the Riu, so it books up faster.
            ~What type of guests do you have? If you have alot of partiers, you may want to check out the Riu since it is so close to town, however Dreams is only like a 15 minute cab ride away. Riu is also much more of a party atmosphere, in my opinion, although Dreams is very fun too. The Riu is probably too far to walk to the bars and downtown too, we rented a car while we were there and always drove to town. During my site visit I stayed at the Riu and visited Dreams. We thought the Riu was tons of fun for a vacation, but there were a few too many totally wasted people running around all the time for us to consider it for a wedding. We wanted a quiter atmosphere.
            ~They are both all-inclusive resorts and although I haven't eaten at Dreams I've been told it was wonderful. I've of course eaten at the Riu while I stayed there and my FI both really liked their food too.

            There is so much info on this forum regarding these two places that i'm sure you can find out anything you want to know. Just search for Dreams or Riu in the search bar. If you have any specific questions, just ask because I'm sure someone will have the answer!
