Question

Is Cabo one city or two?

Answer

Los Cabos refers to both "Cabos", Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Although only ~45 kms away, these are two cities. The International Airport is located in San Jose del Cabo (SJD), and the Welcome Party and our Wedding are located in Cabo San Lucas (This is also where Celso and Becca's hotel will be.)

Question

Should I stay at an Accommodation Only hotel, or an All Inclusive?

Answer

Great question, this is up to you! We're happy you'll be joining us in this important day. And, we suggest you evaluate the experience you want to have in Cabo MX. Consider these parameters: - How long will I be here, 2, 3 or more days? - Will I be at the Hotel most of the time, or will I often venture out to town? - Do I want most of my meals and activities to be at the hotel or should I try local places? Hotel Suggestions on Travel Page. Make the most of your visit to Cabo. Enjoy Yourself.

Question

Is it safe to leave the resort? OR Anything I should know about traveling in Mexico?

Answer

Yes, Cabo is a very safe area for tourists. We love venturing out when we are here. That being said, please take care of yourself. Don't do anything risky that you wouldn't do elsewhere. Do beware of timeshare sales people.

Question

Can I drink the tap water? What about the ice in my drinks?

Answer

It is not recommended. Different than in the U.S., tap water is not potable in Mexico. Most locals drink filtered/purified water so we recommend you drink bottled water only. Ice at bars and restaurants comes from ice machines and it is deemed safe. Some resorts do filter their water; please check with your resort to ensure. Note: If you go to a restaurant/bar and ask for "water", you will get bottled water. Expect to pay for it.

Question

What will the weather be like?

Answer

TLDR: January averages are High 80 degrees F, Low in the 60s. When we went last year, the High was ~75 and Low ~62. A light sweater or shawl at night is recommended. For details and data visit this sitehttps://weatherspark.com/m/2918/1/Average-Weather-in-January-in-Cabo-San-Lucas-Mexico.

Question

Can I swim at the beach in Cabo?

Answer

Cabo San Lucas beach is where the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez meet. Although a beautiful sight, it makes most beaches in Cabo not swimmable due to the strong currents. Medano Beach (where Becca and Celso will be staying) is a swimmable beach. Multiple of our recommended hotels are on Medano Beach. Please ask your hotel whether the waters are rough or not that day before swimming, and please check the signs/flags on the beach.

Question

How do I get from the airport to the resort?

Answer

Please visit the Travel page for details.

Question

How do I get around town? Will Transportation be provided?

Answer

Cabo San Lucas downtown is very walkable. For transport to and from your hotel, please check with the concierge for local taxis. Also, Uber is readily available everywhere in town. TBD on Transportation to/from the Wedding.

Question

Are there fun activities in Cabo, indoors and outdoors?

Answer

Yes, there are plenty of events in Cabo. From ATV riding, Parasailing, Banana Rides, Whale Watching to Sunset/Sunrise Boat Ride. Please check trip advisor and/or your hotel for activities.

Question

What other practical items should I know?

Answer

Cash ---- As of 3/26/2023, Mexican Peso to USD conversion ratio is 18.4 to 1. Most everywhere in town you can pay with dollars (market/restaurants/bar etc.) but not all will use the official exchange rate. So before you pay please ask, what's your conversion ratio? Credit Card --- Most places take credit cards. Ensure your bank does not charge foreign fees per transaction as these can add up. When paying with credit card, most places will bring you the Point of Sale/Terminal to your table to swipe your credit card. Very few places require a minimum purchase value to accept credit cards. If they do, the value is usually low. Tipping is relatively common in Mexico. Although we encourage you to tip generously, there are no hard rules for tipping like in the U.S. For example, at dinner or a bar you can tip 5-10% if you'd like, it's not expected for you to tip 18-20% like in the U.S. Cell phone ---- Please ensure your network provider has service in Mexico. Or, ensure you activate a Mexico plan before leaving the U.S. Electronics --- Mexico's electrical system uses similar voltages and Hz than the U.S. No special adapters are necessary. Items to Pack ---- First and foremost, please bring your passports!!!

Question

Can children attend the events?

Answer

Yes!! Feel free to bring your small humans to celebrate with us.
