Location, Location... Cabo or Cancun??

Recommended Posts

I have been to both locations and they are both great. My issue with Cancun is that it is humid there and it is too much of a party / spring break sceen for my family ----there will be kids traveling with us and that is something I needed to keep in mind. Cabo is great since there is night life if you want it and it is also a little more low key. You are close - if you haven't been to either I would recommend taking a trip for 3 days and check whatever one you are leaning towards for your self.

We picked Cabo because we didn't want to be in Cancun for hurricane season and because more of our guests were on the west coast. We had never been to either. It seems Cabo has a ritzier reputation, but we didn't really know this at the time. It means Cabo can be more expensive though.

We've been to both and like both. We really picked Cabo because I fell in love with Dreams in Cabo. I also liked the fact that Cabo gets less rain, because that was something that really scared me about a DW, since we wanted to be outside. Cancun also has more of a party atmosphere, whereas Cabo (at least on the corridor- CSL is another story!!) is a little quieter.

I have never been to either but....and ended up choosing Riviera Maya but if I were from the west coast I would for sure be choosing Cabo or PV. Not that I am not happy about my location but for some reason Cabo was one of my first picks when deciding where to have a DW.

Just the climate alone would have me leaning towards Cabo if flying from the west coast.

We also looked at Cancun and Cabo...wanted the wedding originally to be in Cancun just because we met in cancun and got engaged in cancun but decided to go with Cabo just because we wanted something new and a place we both haven't been 2. Also i think Cabo has unique scenery and I like the whole desert look o and the photographer that I wanted to use is from cabo

this is still one of my issues. Pretty sure we are going with Cancun because of the cost issue but I really want to go to Cabo. Both are beautiful though. I figure if we don't get married in Cabo it will be a good place for us to go later together.

I love, love, love Cancun and the Riviera Maya. But, I have not been to Cabo yet, so I cant say how I would feel about that area.

 

pros for Cancun

1. Cost. Cancun and the RM can be very low cost.

2. Lots to do. Snorkeling, fishing, art, Mayan ruins.

3. The most beautiful color water I have ever seen.

 

 

Ultimately, I would say to go with your gut instinct. Even if Cabo costs more, it might be worth it to you. I knew within minutes of my first trip to Mexico with Karen that we would get married there.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
