From grand to grande, “Cabo” has it all! Cabo San Lucas has long been a favorite vacation destination for many Californians, including Hollywood’s elite. More recently, our Baja neighbor has become an equaling enticing go-to for weddings.
Boasting an unparalleled combination of romance, adventure, serenity and family fun, Sheraton Grand Los Cabos, Hacienda Del Mar is the idyllic destination wedding resort. Situated on its own private white sands beach, the resort offers expansive views of the Sea of Cortez and seemingly never-ending sunsets as colorful as its Mediterranean architecture. Spacious guest rooms and generously sized balconies tastefully outfitted in authentic Mexican textiles and terra-cotta floors exude Old Mexican charm. With five resort pools and two golf courses, this 270-room Starwood property maintains an intimate vibe typically seen in boutique hotels, with the gracious Mexican hospitality that beckons its visitors.
Whether you host an intimate wedding for 10 or a larger fiesta for 200, you have many ceremony and reception options, and your guests will have plenty to experience. Get married in a picturesque chapel, or beachfront with your toes in the sand. Celebrate under a grand palapa, in a large ballroom, or under the stars. Host a festive rehearsal dinner decked with tiki torches and mariachi. From beachside restaurants to Five-Diamond dining, the Sheraton Grand chefs cater to the most discerning palates.
Fill your wedding weekend activities calendar for a truly memorable guest experience! Soak up the sun at Tortuga Beach, relax in the Hacienda-style Cactus Spa, or treat your best guys and gals to a tequila tasting. Beyond the resort, dining and adventure continues. The setting is hard to beat at Sunset Monalisa, Cabo’s only cliff-side restaurant with an amazing direct view of El Arco. Or add adventure to your dining with a drive to bucolic Flora Farms in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. Now hosting pastoral weddings and events, this 25-acre organic working farm is also home to Flora’s Kitchen which serves a true farm-to-table menu and arguably the most unique and delicious Bloody Mary in all of North America. More of a water baby than a foodie? Check out Cabo Adventures for an array of water sports, but not to be missed is a private sailing charter for your group.
The best part of a Cabo wedding? Direct flights from San Diego or Los Angeles make it an easy, quick and relatively inexpensive destination. So close, yet so far away.
