    Hey everyone! Just wanted to give some details of our recent Cabo trip. We were there for one week and visited many resorts.

    HOTELS:
    Firstly, we stayed at the Hotel Finesterra but disliked the location of the hotel so much that we ended up moving to Pueblo Bonito Sunset (which was awesome)!
    While we were, we visited the 4 PBs, Casa del Mar, Villa del Arco, Sheraton, Westin, Cabo Surf, Melia Cabo Real, Marquis & Fiesta Americana.
    My FAVORITE place was Casa del Mar...it was absolutely gorg and definitely designed for a wedding. However, the rooms are a bit pricy and I wasn't sure I wanted our guests to pay that much for a room on top of the cost of the flight to Cabo. We thought above having guests stay at the Sheraton and just have the wedding party stay at CDM, but thought there might be too much disconnect.
    That being said, we decided to go with our second most fave, the PB resorts. Definitely more reasonably priced and a nice touch allowing our guests full access to all 4 properties!!!
    I just want to add here that I also REALLY loved Melia Cabo Real. This property I actually liked MORE than the PBs, but my FI was worried about the food at an AI resort. Also, for any guests that decide not to stay at the AI, their day passes can add up pretty quickly in terms of cost....So PB IT IS!!
    If you have any questions about the other resorts, please let me know and I can provide more info!

    FOOD:
    We visited 3 restaurants while we were there:
    Sunset da Mona Lisa - just one word to describe this place: AMAZING!!! The view is exceptional at sunset! And the food was unbelievable! We are defo having our welcome dinner here. PICS BELOW!!!
    Pancho’s – Very nice. Good food but nothing exceptional. A bit pricey for what you get to be honest. A bit too casual I thought for a rehearsal dinner.
    Mi Casa – Huge and GREAT food! Great family place to have a dinner!

    PHOTOGRAPHER:
    Finally, I met with Juan Carlos!! Can I just say that he was extremely nice, on time & very interested in where our wedding was going to be, etc. Both my FI and I liked him right away. I can’t wait to work with him and neither of us are bothered by the 3 month wait for pics, so that shouldn’t be an issue. FYI, I’ve read before that he was a bit standoffish in person, but I definitely did not get this impression. He is a little scatter-brained though, but so is every great artist! I am very happy with our decision to go with him.

    CAKE:
    We went to Jennifer Hatton’s place to try her cakes and they were truly awesome!
    That being said, with our package with PB, we get a cake, so I don’t think we will use Jennifer’s unfortunately. (We’re trying to cut back on costs).

    DJ:
    We met with DJ Richie and he was just the nicest man ever! He brought his wife (also his assistant) with him and tried to take us to breakfast at this a nice local place. We had already eaten unfortunately, but we still sat and chatted with them for well over an hour. Such nice people and another great pick!

    Anyway, I think that’s about it. If any one needs more details or contact info, pls let me know and I will send it along.

            Welcome back! A great review. We stayed at PB Rose and had our reception dinner at Sunset da Mona Lisa. We didn't like the food but the view is awesome. We got some good photographs there. Which PB are you going to stay at? Panchos had some great food also.

                      Hello Jaychin3,

                      Excellent vendor choosing!!!

                      Juan Carlos is a top photographer and so are the rest of the vendors. Either Pueblo bonito you chooseyou will be in great hands with Laura or Cecilia!

                      Happy planning!!!
