Finding the Perfect Spot for Our Special Day Get Married in Mexico
Where we got married in Mexico was just as important to us as getting married in Mexico, so the search began again. Tulum was too far and Rosarito too close. Todos Santos was just the right distance and oh-so romantic, but lacked the hotel space we thought we needed. With 100 guests as our target, we wanted to find a place that was easy and inexpensive to fly to and could accommodate everyone at one resort. It was also our goal to find a location that felt like Mexico, not the modern, gentrified and reimagined version, but truly authentic—think Saltillo tiles and bright colors. Lastly, we wanted it to be oceanfront with an amazing pool.
The Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda Del Mar ticked all of our boxes. It was close to the airport and close enough to the city for our friends to make nightly excursions. Its oceanfront pool was large enough that we often came downstairs to find 40 or 50 of our friends swimming or riding the shore-breaking waves. Plus, the property was large enough that you weren’t bumping into someone around every corner.
We flew from Orange County to Cabo San Lucas about one year in advance to view the property in person and they catered to our every need. They helped us arrange the flowers, DJ, rooms, transportation, cakes and food. They even arranged a wedding coordinator to answer all of the questions we didn’t remember or know to ask. We left after that weekend confident that we wouldn’t have anything to worry about.
