    Hello Eveyone! My hubby and I are planning an intimate 5yr wedding vow renewal in cabo for May2013...super excited! There are so many beautiful places I don't know where to stay! I think I've finally narrowed it down to either Riu Sante Fe or Riu Palace...... Based on location to the marina. Is there much difference between the two? Also, can anyone recommend a boat/catamaran service that can accommodate about 25 ppl? Thinking of doing a private dinner cruise with my guests the night before the ceremony. Thanks so much everyone and hope to hear back soon!

    Hi Lelin! We stayed at RIU Santa Fe when we got married in Cabo (altho we didnt hold a ceremony or reception at the resort) and it was wonderful! the food, rooms, pools, etc were great. the location is really good as well, close to costco, only a couple miles from the marina.


    we didnt go over to RIU Palace, altho my parents stayed there the week after we left and raved about it, they said it was amazing!


    either way i think you are making a great choice!

      Hey! We are getting married at the RIU Palace, Cabo. I have a friend who got married there as well and loved it...plenty of honest reviews on this site so just search for those :) As for the sunset cruises we are looking to do something similar through http://www.cabosanlu...nner-Cruise.htm There are a few different companies and all have reviews on Tripadvisor so may be best to start there.


      Good luck!

        Thanks for the valuable info Houstonlh!


        I will start my search....Our wedding 5 years ago was in Chicago where we are from...on a beautiful golf course...and that was because we wanted our families (both come from BIG Mexican families) to attend....otherwise, we would have had a destination wedding from the start as it was always my DREAM.  So now 5 years later...I am going for what I have truly dreamed off....a BEAUTIFUL, NON-STRESSFUL and FUN intimate ceremony on the beach...yes, I want to feel the sand on my toes and the wind in my hair=:)


        We finally narrowed down a date....May 24, 2013....and I'm leaning towards RIU Palace....when is your wedding? 


        Again, thanks for the info and hope all your planning is coming along beautifully.

          Thanks so much for the info Abbie!

          I've done some searching around and I think we are going to go with the RIU Palace.  You were right....can't go wrong either way.
