    I have emailed probably more than a dozen vendors in Cabo for information and have only received a handful of responses. Has anyone noticed that a lot of vendors are slow to respond or completely non-responsive?

    The vendors I contacted include a few wedding coordinators, rental company, and a number of hotels / venues. For most of the hotels I filled out a contact form on their website, so I don't even remember exactly how many I've requested info from. The few people I did receive a response from took a long time to respond.

      I think everything moves slower in Mexico. I had a few slow responses, some were based on the language barrier and others were... who knows? I know I sit at a desk all day and respond to emails immediately... I don't think that happens as much down there. Some people you won't hear from at all. I just kept resending.

      If you do a search on this topic, you'll see this as a common issue amongst the girls, and also how they dealt with it.

        Yes this is very true. WHen I was planning my cabo wedding I found that if you mention your wedding date (for me is was several months away) they won't even respond. They do everything like 2 months before (well except the big items, IE photographer, resort, etc) I ended up hiring a WC, because they know everyone there and can deal with all that stuff for you.

        But with all that said, like someone else mentioned we have so much information on the cabo area on the forum already, so hopefully those thread will help answer your questions.

          I havent had too many problems with this. It seems that many of the people I have called are pretty prompt. This is true of my florist, DJ, hotel, and photographer. I contacted several different vendors and if they didn't get back with me within a week, I crossed them off my list.

            I have problems maybe with a couple of vendors in that matter, however, I think it is something that helps to choose. Finally will work with the people you feel that is taking good care of you. One thing that really help was my wedding planner following closely in the vendor for me on the phone. I emailed everything to Gretel at the Villa del Arco, and she was always aware of my questions, and needs and called directly the vendors. So after all I did not deal with them too much. She did a great job in that area, too.
