We called the front desk to ask if they had medical personnel who could help us. A few minutes later an ambulance showed up with 3 guys to take me to the emergency clinic. When we arrived at the clinic they took me right in and took fantastic care of me....I received 7 stiches, a tetnus shot, an antibiotic shot and perscriptions for antibotics and motrin. The medical attention was great.

My brother also got sick. We called the hotel again and they sent a doctor out to our room to take care of him. It turned out to be the same doctor that helped me.

I went back to see the doctor at the resort during business hours to have my wound cleaned and again he was so attentive and careful with me.

In my opinion, the medical attention in Cabo is great. The gal who came to do my make-up, Suzanne Morel, also agreed that medical care down there was great. She said that the Mexicans really practice medicine with their heart.

Anway, that is my experience with the Mexican medical facilities. BTW, the clinic I went to was Northwest Medical....they spoke perfect English there (I think it was near the Malia). There was also another medical clinic on the main drag in Cabo.

hope this helps a little.
I'm sorry you had to go to the hospital during your wedding week, but I'm glad it all worked out. Thanks for the information on the medical facilities. That is reassuring. Congratulations on your recent marriage.
Laurel

One thing I'm curious about is that I have read in a few places on this forum that the villas are a pricey option. Are there hidden costs that I don't know about besides the rental fee and perhaps an event fee? We are probably going to have 40 family members/close friends. Many will be staying at PB Sunset Beach or Pacifica, but we hope the wedding party can all fit in the villa where we have the reception. I'm not sure whether to go for a higher priced or a lower priced villa. It would be nice to be in one that really takes your breath away, but then again it would be great to be able to pay for our wedding party's lodging. So, it is kind of a trade-off.

We thought we would have the wedding on the Pedgregal beach and the reception at the villa - not sure yet. Sunset Beach is also an option, but it seems really expensive (like 270pp for dinner). Are you planning on having a caterer at the villa? Any recommendations? We aren't sure yet whether we will have a catered event or a casual BBQ.
I hope I didn't ask too many questions...
Best wishes,
Laurel

Sorry it took so long to get back..
The Villa's can be expensive.. there is an event fee and a homeowners association fee on top of the daily rate. Depending on who you rent from they can also require you stay a certain number of days. We've got Villa Grande for 3 nights.. Our wedding is about the same size as yours and are having our 'wedding party' stay at the house with us. The rest of our guests are staying at the PB Sunset. The nice thing is .. there are a lot of Villa's to choose from so you can really adjust your price! Make sure you talk to someone about WHAT you want to do at the Villa..so you know you have enough square footage. We went with Villa Grande because it's been recommended for weddings and it's pretty big! But we're doing the Wedding, & Reception there.. and we're hosting a welcome bbq for our guests the Friday afternoon before!
As for the Caterer.. we're having the wedding catered, of course, but for day to day meals.. we're stocking up on some food at the Costco.. and our guests can come and go as they please.. We're only there 3 nights.. and we have stuff planned for each night they're there.. so they won't go hungry!
Our BBQ we're doing ourself.. My brother and my FI brother will be maning the grill.. we're getting salads and chips and beer and making it very low key!
Our Caterer is Lazy Gourmet.. only because we've heard fantastic things about them. I've never heard anything bad about the food.. but I will caution, their WC isn't exactly speedy at getting back to me, or getting things done.. but I've got friends who have been married in Cabo before.. and say that's just they way everyone operates there. So I'm trying to chill out about planning!
Please feel free to ask as many questions you'd like.. we really depended on this site when we booked everything!

Hi girls! One of my big concerns about getting married in Cabo is that my sister in law will have given birth only a few months before we're to get married. The baby will be about four months when our wedding rolls around but my sister in law is very nervous to bring the baby to Mexico and come to the wedding. I have talked to my own OBGYN and she said it's really no different than taking a baby to Hawaii. It sounds like the medical facilities in Cabo are pretty great if anything (god forbid) were to happen. Did any of you ladies have small babies at your wedding? Cabo is really very "americanized" so I think it will be fine but I'm not a mom yet so I don't know the extent of her worries.

I don't know how to move this to it's own thread - but I'll reply. My family went to Cozumel with my bro about 18 years ago and he was only 6 months old. He was fine. And consider that it was 18 years ago and Cozumel wasn't nearly as developed as it is now. Same goes for the rest of Mexico. Baby will be fine!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
