Cabo in October???

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I really are hoping to do Cabo in October, on a budget!!!


Initially we thought an AI was the way to go and have been thinking about the Crowne Plaza........ I really like the smaller feel, definitely want the ceremony on the beach, etc.


Looking in the forums and online just now thinking about Cabo Surf hotel or Marbella en la playa. Any thoughts?


We will probably have 40-50 people and $10,000 budget. We would ideally like to be able to do a welcome cocktail hour, rehearsal and brunch the day after for everyone.


Any help would be appreciated, I do not think we will get a chance to go down there before the wedding.

Congrats and welcome. My 2 cents on Cabo in October is that it is generally very hot. We were there for site visits in early October 2009, and it was about 95 every day. It was also humid and rained twice while we were there. Just something to be aware of in your planning. It can certainly be done, but you may want to look into an indoor reception, or one later in the day once it's a bit cooler out. Good Luck!

Hi and welcome to the forum!


We, too, are on a $10k budget and found it extremely difficult to make it within that range with that number of guests. We ended up having to trim the guest list in half to make it within budget.


Good luck in planning!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
