Looking at AI in Los Cabos or Cancun

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Forum! We are staying at the Riu Palace in Cabo but are getting married at the Imperial Suite at Fiesta Americana. There is tons of info on here about both Cabo and Cancun! Happy Planning!

Both locations are amazing and have so many choices for you to chose from! Ranging from smaller boutique AI's to larger chock full of amenities AI's!


The first thing I would advise is to figure out whether you and your FI want an adult only resort ( typically a bit more expensive but generally higher quality) or a family resort? That'll help narrow the choices down drastically! If you will have children in attendance for the wedding you may still be able to do an adult only-just check if the resort will allow children for the ceremony and what the policy is for the reception!


Then figure out if you want and what your budget supports- a three, four or 5 star property- again that will narrow the choices down!


Think about what kind of wedding you want- toes in the sand or in a beautiful oceanside gazebo, is privacy really important or are you ok with bystanders?


Then I would contact a destination wedding travel agent! Of course preferably one from this forum, but definately use one that has experience as destination wedding travel is very different from booking regular vacations! It requires a specialized skill set !


Is travel time for your guests important ? Your travel agent may want to look at averge flight times for the majority of your guests if it is. Keep in mind that most guests will only go on average for 3-4 days, two of those will be travel so the less time in flight and travel to the resort may be important aspects to consider.


Good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
