    Hi ladies!

    Well, we've gone from deciding on maybe Jamaica, to maybe Punta Cana or Cozumel, to probably Puerto Vallarta....but still no final decisions, so what about Cabo? Can anyone tell me what the weather is like there in November.? How does it compare to Cancun (only place in Mx we've been so far)? Also, reading some info on individual resorts on Expedia, it seems like you can't swim in the ocean because of strong undertows??
    We are so confused!!! Oh well, we can just keep stretching this all out and enjoy it while it lasts--we're in no rush (besides getting annoyed at everyone asking us when and where!!! (understandably so))

    weather is great in nov. cabo doesnt really have a hurricane season like cancun. cancun weather is more humid as cabo is in the dessert. very little rain in cabo.

    cabo is more expensive than cancun and pv. and yes, most of the beaches are not swimmable...the ones that are, are not like the beaches in jamaica or cancun area.

      weather in Cabo and Puerto Vallarta is going to be very similar in November - very nice and not too hot (usually).

      You are right about the undertows - there are a few resorts where you can swim in the ocean but not a lot in Cabo.

        I definitely picked Cabo because I like the dry, hot climate over the humid ones you would experience in cancun or pv.

            I've been to Cabo in February and November and both times the weather was perfect! But for the most part year round Cabo has amazing weather...it can just be a little more hot during during July and August.

              Cabo is great! That's where I am getting married and for the following reasons-

              It's not as expensive for our guest to fly there compared to let's say Cancun. ( I think it's like a couple hundred dollar difference+, which can really add up).

              The weather is pretty much great year round except in the summer when it can reach the 90's and sometimes the 100's (but even then it really isn't that bad).

              There are storms from July-August, but I hear they aren't as bad as other places in Mexico.

              It's still popular amongst the young spring breakers, but not as bad as cancun.

              You may not be able to swim in the ocean, but all the resorts have pools and you would be too busy with wedding details to have time to swim at the beach anyway.

              The area is a little bit more high end, hence it's more expensive than other places in Mexico.

              Plenty of good restaurants from expensive French restaurants to taco stands and awesome hotels. Plus, there is also a Costco and Wal Mart nearby if you need supplies.

              If you want to avoid the tourist traps and young spring breakers, then I would suggest San Jose Del Cabo, which is a few minutes away from Cabo. It's still touristy, but not as congested.
