If you are looking to tie the knot this year in the Instagram-friendly coast of Mexico’s Baja California, then you are truly spoiled for choice! While the old-world charm of Los Cabos has long seduced elite vacationers with its stunning beaches and luxury resorts, the lush shore is increasingly becoming a preferred destination for fairy tale weddings. After a series of celebrity and VIP nuptials taking place across Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, the regional hospitality has upped its A-game with cutting edge technology and services amidst the contrast of sandy beaches, cacti-dotted deserts and pristine golf courses. The 2018 edition of the exclusive DWP Congress, which attracts the world leaders in the luxury destination wedding business, will explore the bustling hot spots in the region. Ahead of the one-of-a-kind event, we take a sneak peek into the DWP Congress’s chosen venues in Los Cabos. 

Cabo del Sol, Los Cabo Golf Resort

Located in one of the most pristine beaches of Cabo, Cabo del Sol offers an unmatched romantic vibe for a tropical wedding. Rich with modern facilities, breathtaking views and unforgettable sunsets, the internationally acclaimed clubhouse is one of the finest in the world and perfect for large wedding parties. Commence the celebrations at the blooming terrace for an afternoon brunch that offers stunning panoramic views of the water and mountains while sharing gourmet meals, and make your way to the sandy beach for the after party by the turquoise sea, letting the Baja magic sweep you away.

Cabo Azul Resort, San José del Cabo

 Whether you’re scouting for choices for the actual location of your wedding ceremony or the cocktail reception after the nuptials; be it for an intimate celebration with ten of your closest family members or a large-scale event for 125 guests, Cabo Azul’s oceanfront property, spread across 12 acres of lush green land, was made for dream-come-true kind of weddings. From the oceanfront patio with panoramic views overlooking the Sea of Cortéz, to the five-story high El Corazon wedding chapel complete with intricate wood carvings, white marble and details to delight, the venue options are endless. The resort also offers a team of wedding coordinators, event planners and a catering staff to make your special day perfect. Additionally PAZ, the resort’s award-winning spa, was designed to relax and rejuvenate the whole wedding party.

Los Cabos International Convention Centre (ICC)

Planning a large-scale wedding or a special event? We have got you covered. The Los Cabos International Convention Centre located alongside a private golf community with unrivalled views of the surrounding desert landscape to one side and the Gulf of California to the other, is a gorgeous venue you don’t want to miss out on. The world-class property was originally built to host the likes of U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel for the 2012 G20 Economic Summit. In April 2018, the extraordinary locale will now host the DWP Congress and its many VIP attendees. Known for its exemplary passive design strategy, the centre features one of the largest green walls in the world, a controlled drip irrigation system, photovoltaics, LED lighting and state-of-the-art solar panels.

Acre Restaurant + Cocktail Bar

Imagine celebrating your special day with your loved ones, surrounded by lush mango and agave orchards in a sultry romantic desert setting. The hip new eatery near San José del Cabo, which is set on an exquisite private farmland, is a hidden gem and a tranquil oasis filled with art and beauty. The imaginative restaurant and bar is packed with tropical goodness as well as beautiful down to earth architecture, artisanal interiors, delicious cuisine and so much more. The extensive menu features ingredients that are grown on the surrounding 25 acres of organic farmland which adds a rustic personality to an elegant wedding brunch or late-night festivities. Acre also makes cocktail hour and pool parties even more fun with their newly launched pool area with flora on all sides alongside a dance floor spacious enough for one hundred guests!

Barceló Gran Faro Los Cabos

A few miles away from San José, the luxurious hotel offers world class facilities in all rooms and suites equipped with private balconies boasting the famous views of the Sea of Cortéz.

Featuring an assorted selection of international dishes within the complex’s all-inclusive program, Barceló Gran Faro features a fully equipped spa, and all types of activities and excursions. Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or a full-fledged wedding party at the Los Cabos destination, this is a one-stop shop for all your entertainment needs.

Grand Canyon, San Carlos

Located on the southern tip of the Baja peninsula, the Canyon of San Carlos is a striking backdrop for outdoorsy events, far from the vibrant city lights. The scenic spot is a favorite amongst eco-tourists looking for a private celebration and an evening of memorable stargazing at the majestic natural wonder.

With the joint efforts of the Los Cabos Tourism Board and Mexico Tourism Board, Mexico successfully won the bid to host the coveted DWP Congress this year owing to its unparalleled natural beauty, its fast-growing world class amenities and innumerable scenic wedding venues.

The burgeoning business potential of the Cabo peninsula makes it a perfect backdrop for all kinds of celebrations —from intimate black-tie events to grand wedding ceremonies. Los Cabos sets the scene for all festivities with fantastic year-round sunshine, friendly hospitality and outstanding wedding suppliers, and with the upcoming DWP Congress, the future looks bright for the Mexican coastal town.
