Calling all West Coast couples!

If you are looking for a luxurious destination wedding in paradise look no further than the gorgeous coast of Los Cabos, Mexico. Situated at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, couples will fall in love with the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean and the rugged cliffs, desert vistas and stunning mountain views.

“It only rains about three times a year in Los Cabos! This almost guarantees you’ll have a warm, sunny day for a perfect wedding celebration among loved ones.”

Known for its vivacious nightlife and liveliness, Los Cabos offers a variety of attractions including its impressive Marina, world-class golf courses, deep-sea fishing excursions, whale watching expeditions, natural wildlife and vegetation, exciting nightclubs, restaurants, shopping, and so much more. Two unique excursions not to be missed include camel-back riding along the Sea of Cortez and a catamaran ride to view the famous “El Arco”, a natural rock formation in the shape of an arch, complete with a family of sea lions sun bathing nearby.
