    Hello, 

     

    I recently looked at at Cabo Surf Hotel as a possible wedding site and hotel for a May/June 2014 wedding. While I was there, I briefly talked to the wedding coordinator, Martha, and got some information about the 2014 prices. Since I had a difficult time getting prices, I thought I would share some of the info that I got in case any one else needed it. I also got eaten alive at the hotel, not so much at the one other place we checked out (RIU Palace). Usually there are no mosquitoes because the area is surrounded by a desert, but I was told there has been a lot of rain in the past couple of months so there are an unusual number of them around. My fiance wasn't bitten at all, but I got bitten 9 times in the first hour I was outside, so any potential brides checking out the area might want to think about how their guests would deal with bugs.

     

    Hors D'Oeuvres (min. 30 ppl) 

    Mexican (fish ceviche, sopes, guac & chips, etc.) = $16/person

    Deluxe (mango tuna tartar, spring rolls, scallops, etc.) = $19/person

     

    You can also do $3 per piece of other hors d'oeuvres such as crostini, crab cakes etc.

      I didn't notice mosquitoes anywhere else besides Surf Hotel. I was definitely surprised! I didn't go to Casa Dorada, so I don't know if they are there too. Maybe the wedding coordinator can help?
