    Ladies! I need your help. We would've loved to have our wedding in Hawaii, but it is a bit too far for a lot of our guests on the East Coast. Thus, we are now considering Cabo or Puerto Vallarta to have a destination wedding. Unfortunately, I've never been to either. Have any of you been to both and which would you prefer to have a wedding?

    Between the two, which has more activities for our guests, natural raw beauty, ability to get away from the cheesiness of the resort towns/areas, and better beaches? Which is the lesser tourist trap?

    Thanks for your help!

      Cabo is my personal favorite, as you can see, I'm getting married there next month. I've been to both places but Cabo more times. My daughter got married in PV and it was fun and gorgeous, as well. You couldn't go wrong with either place. Good luck with your decision.

        I like Cabo better but it's also more expensive than Puerto Vallarta. If you don't want a very touristy spot, try staying in San Jose instead San Lucas. The activities are pretty much the same, but I feel there is more clubs in Cabo than Vallarta.

        Good luck!

          HI,

          One thing to consider between PV and Cabo is the weather. PV is more humid and rains more often than in Cabo. You need to check according to the month you want to get married. Cabo has a more constant weather, except for august and september, the rain is very unlikely.

          Other than that, both are beautiful places. My WC works for both places, maybe she can help you. Send me an email if you need her info: daisyandjon@gmail.com

              I have been to both PV and Cabo and in both cases I did a lot of sightseeing (the local way - walking around, catching a taxi/ferry or taking the local bus). Both places have great sightseeing and tons of options for things to do.

              I found that the water was more clear in Cabo, but that might have been the time of year. Surf is really strong out in Cabo though, so the beach at your resort may not be good for swimming and so you might need to go out of the resort to swim.

              Both towns have resort than can be far away from town, so you might need to look into that if it bothers you. Both have a lot of people trying to sell you stuff on the beach and big resorts.

              Yes, it can rain in PV but it all depends on the month. Some airlines stop to fly to Cabo in the winter because it gets cold there!

              Hope this helps a little... good luck!
