Los Cabos is defined as the coastal area at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, encompassing the two municipalities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.
Cabo San Lucas is a larger city, more cosmopolitan, and offers everything you expect to find in larger cities such as high-end shopping, high quality restaurants and exciting nightlife. Cabo San Lucas is also where the marina is located, where fishing trips, whale watching tours and other excursions begin. San Jose del Cabo is a smaller, more traditional town with quaint streets, cute coffee shops, artisanal stores and art galleries.
The area is famous for its warm weather, dramatic seaside landscapes, world class fishing and yachting, and first-class hospitality.

The resort has all of the amenities you can imagine, including numerous pools, a high-end spa and beauty salon, and classy, comfortable rooms. There just is something amazing about staying at a brand-new resort where every detail is fresh. Everything you need is there, nothing is missing. This is the vibe Garza Blanca Los Cabos can provide for your wedding day.
Secondly, the resort is located exactly in between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. This provides your guests with the convenience to easily travel to either municipality to explore. Just a 15-minute drive in either direction will take you there, and taxis and Ubers are readily available.
If you are considering getting married in Los Cabos, you’ll be happy to know that all wedding packages at Garza Blanca include a ceremony conducted in English under a beautiful bamboo huppah with white fabric overlooking the ocean, a bottle of sparkling wine for a toast after the ceremony, and complementary romantic turn-down service on your wedding night.

Puerto Vallarta is located on the west coast of Mexico, in the middle of the Bay of Banderas, where the Sierra Madre mountains spill into the Pacific Ocean. At nearly the same latitude as Hawaii, Puerto Vallarta has many similarities including lush tropical jungle, warm coastal weather, and friendly locals.
Puerto Vallarta has everything you want for your Mexico destination wedding, including adventure activities such as snorkeling and diving, hiking, jungle zip lining, kayaking, whale watching, fishing, water sports and nightlife. Couples who opt to tie the knot in Puerto Vallarta will find plenty of Hawaii vibes, but for half the price!

Located at the tip of the Yucatan peninsula in the area known as Riviera Maya, Cancun is one of the most picturesque places for a destination wedding. An easy flight from most major cities, Cancun is world famous for its soft white sands and clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
