We're still not sure though because we really want those balmy evenings that come with a tropical climate and we're not sure Cabo or PV would be warm enough.
I love how Cabo is only about 2.5 hours away though, and it has SOOOOOOO many options compared to PV.
I would love your insight! How did you all pick Cabo for your wedding location? Did you have a hard time deciding between Cabo and somewhere else? If so, what were your other options and what were your priorities?
Oh yeah and for those of you who have been to Cabo, how cold does it get at night in May/June?
We need to narrow it down to an area soon since we would like to get married next May or June so I'm really looking forward to hearing about your experiences!
I am also from San Francisco (or was when i got married)...when we were trying to pick a location, we wanted somewhere hot, somewhere DH and friends could surf.
Cabo was the perfect choice for us because:
- flights were cheap and short from SFO. this made a huge difference for those travelling with kids.
- weather was HOT...it does get very balmy there. especially in the summer. if you want it hot and balmy try may, jun, july, october wedding date...if you want it SUPER HOT...august, september.
- Dreams Cabo i think does the best weddings of all the dreams resorts. they have a stellar wedding dept. and very reasonable wedding packages. You get alot for your $$ in terms of wedding costs.
that being said, PV is also a great choice because the rooms at Dreams PV are about $100-150 less a night than dreams cabo. Their wedding department is a little more difficult to work with (alot of turnaround, they haven't really hiot their stride) but the resort is very nice. The flights are almost twice as long though.
