Cabo San Lucas, often simply called “Cabo,” is a popular Pacific-coast getaway for both Mexican and international tourists alike. Known for its sophisticated and glamorous beach culture, Cabo has a prolific marine life, making it a natural hub for fisherman and water sport enthusiasts. You will also find top-rate amenities and services, along with some of the country’s best spas. A stay here is not complete without a trip to Al Arco, a stunning natural rock formation that juts into the harbor just offshore.
Same-sex marriage is not currently legal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Mexico City is the only Mexican state where same-sex marriage is currently legal. Check with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist for additional information.

Climate & Beaches
Cabo San Lucas has a tropical desert climate with over 300 days of sunshine annually. The average year-round temperature is 78 degrees F, with temperatures reaching as high as 100 degrees F offseason (May to September).
Cabo beaches are known for swift undertows and rocky shorelines, but some swimmer-friendly spots do exist. Playa Medano is a swimmable beach, but is often quite crowded. If you’re looking for a romantic lookout point, head to the iconic El Arco, while Playa del Amor has great vistas.
Activities & Tourist Attractions
Cabo is home to some of Mexico’s best golf courses, including the famed (and expensive) Cabo Del Sol Golf Club. If you’re looking for a relaxing activity, try a spa day. Since many celebrities jet down from LA for a weekend retreat, the area is well-known for pampering treatments. Or, simply hang at the beach. They range from quiet and removed to touristy and crowded. When the sun sets, you can expect a bustling gay scene in Cabo.
Try The Rainbow Bar for disco and margaritas, or head over to Sammy Hagar’s famed Cabo Wabo Cantina for a shot of tequila.
