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!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
