Sunset Time for Cabo San Lucas

Recommended Posts

OK - I think this is the scoop on the time change.... I checked today online and it says that Mexico is changing the clocks in April... I believe it is only the US that is moving the date up...

 

Right now the weddings are set for 6pm. The sun has been setting around 7ish...

FRICK!@!!! I am so pissed about this whole time issue...I just got an email from my photog. He went & scouted my location yesterday to see where the sun will/will not be during the time of our ceremony, which is scheduled for 5pm.

 

I went to CSH yesterday for you and took these photos between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. which should give you an idea of the sun coverage on the beach @ the time of your ceremony. From what I could tell the sun will be entirely gone from the beach @ 5:30 p.m. because it sets behind some hills at the back of CSH. Photography is all about natural light, the more light the better the photos, particularly at the beach. Have you considered having the ceremony a little earlier?

I did this scouting yesterday because I want you to be totally aware. If we take the majority of the pics AFTER the ceremony I will be photographing in low light and will need to use a flash.

 

I did a little more research & it looks like Mexico will not be changing their time until April (as mentioned in previous post). So now I need to try to adjust everything back an hour - hair/makeup, musicians, ceremony time, cocktail hour, dinner hour. DAMMIT!!!~

At least you found out now, when you have the possibility of moving everything back. Good luck!

After having consulted local businesses, government sites, on line forums, information sites and a guru in the Himalayas it would appear that Baja WILL NOT follow the 2007 U.S. changes to D.S.T. (Daylight Saving Time). So here in Los Cabos it is still spring forward Sunday April 1st.2007 and fall back Sunday, October 28th.2007. I will try to attach a table I put together for you all.

We were in Cabo few days ago, the very day they change the daylight time.

 

I check in my iphone few sites to check which one has the ACTUAL-on-site-accurate sunset time and only source in internet who stated sunset time for Oct 27 @ 6:30 - with daylight saving time and on Oct28 @ 5:30- without daylight saving time was Weather underground, scroll down for history/almanac and find your wedding day with a previous year- it is a history/almanac not a foreteller.

I don't know where the sunsets at 5:40 p.m. on March 3rd.2008 but it set here in Cabo yesterday (March 3rd) @ 6:20 p.m. I will see if I can attach a sunrise/sunset chart I have made for the planning brides. The chart is for 2008.

 

Here is a link that will generate a sunrise/sunset time for any date.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
