San Jose Del cabo wedding October 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I need your help. I have my wedding in a casa that i have hired in October in San Jose del cabo. Most guests are flying in from Australia so we are looking for accommodation for guests that really shows off the the mexican flair and beautiful area but is also in  a great location where they dont need a car but able to walk into town or have complimentary transport available. Does that exist??

 

I have never been to the area (which makes it difficult) but i dont want guests to feel like that are just staying in any resort and could be anywhere i want it to feel a little more special and less touristy. please help me! If nothing like that exists in San jose, does it exist in Cabo? any reccommendations??

 

thankyou!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding here in Cabo. Answers to a few questions will focus the options:

 

1.) Preferring something close to your wedding location in San Jose?

2.) How many guests will need accommodation?

3.) 3 star or 5 star?

4.) Considering all-inclusive?

5.) Considering villa rentals?

6.) What is the name of the Villa/Casa you have chosen of your wedding?

 

I look forward to your answers.

San Jose del Cabo is less touristy than Cabo San Lucas so I think you've made a great choice. It's where we had our wedding last November. As far as transportation, it is advisable to make all your reservations to and from the airport ahead of time (I think if you google cabo shuttle, you'll get a website through which you can arrange it); if you're not sure, let me know and I can dig up the website that I recommended to some of my guests. There are some condos in the area that you can also rent through VRBO.com so that your guests don't have to feel like they're in a hotel all the time but more in a home. You'll have to make sure though that the condos are within walking distance of the San Jose del Cabo's historic district.

 

There's also the Tropicana Inn which is really beautiful and quiet. It's very Mexican and not like a regular hotel or resort. One of my guests stayed there and so we went with him and his wife to check out the place; I loved it. If you search for it on hotels.com or any of the travel sites, you will see a lot of pictures. It also is right in the historic district so you can walk to restaurants, shops, etc. There's also a public bus that goes to Cabo San Lucas so your guests can hop on it and go to the touristy part of Cabo. You can also ask the front desk to arrange for cabs. Sometimes you'll see cabs out front but it's usually best to get the front desk to arrange for it; or if you do catch a cab out front, make sure you get them to tell you how much it is before you get in the car.

 

There is also the Hotel Cielito Lindo which had great reviews, is cheap, and quite authentically Mexican. However, I'm not sure how many of your guests like that kind of accommodation. We had thought about staying here after our wedding but decided to splurge a little more and went somewhere about a 15-minute drive away that was absolutely beautiful but not a resort.

 

But these are the two out-of-the-ordinary hotels that I know of. Otherwise, all my guests stayed in either condos or all-inclusive resorts in the area. I gave all my guests a choice so some people picked a resort while others picked a condo, and then one party picked the Tropicana.

 

Have you gotten all your vendors? Let me know if you have any questions! I'd be happy to help as much as I can!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
