How to Have Your Bachelorette Party, Wedding, and Honeymoon in Los Cabos

Bridesmaids, Events, Honeymoons & Destination Weddings, Planning Tips

This glam seaside strip between Mexico's Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo attracts everyone from BFFs to newlyweds. Here's three ways to enjoy Los Cabos, from your bachelorette party to wedding and honeymon.

The Bachelorette Party

Where To stay
The Cape, A Thompson Hotel
Not only is it close to Cabo San Lucas's party scene, its rooftop has two bars, ensuring your margarita glasses stay full. Every room has views of "El Arco," Los Cabos' iconic stone arch, and a free tequila bottle made exclusively for the hotel. (Doubles from $599, Thompson Hotels)

Where to Eat
The Office on The Beach
At this Crayola-colored restaurant, all tables sit seaside, so you can do tequila shots with your toes in the sand. Come for the killer ceviche and sea-bass tacos; stay for the mariachi music and group #SunsetSelfies.

What to Do
Luna y Mar spa at The Resort at Pedregal
Gather your girls for a day of massages and mud wraps inspired by the sea, moon, and Mexican folk healing. After your treatments, bliss out in the spa's sauna, steam room, or ice cave or just take a dip in the saltwater pool.

The Wedding
Where to stay
Hotel El Ganzo
Perks include a rooftop infinity pool, a glass Jacuzzi, and an underground recording
studio. Even your hipster cousin will be into the live rock music and primo location— within walking distance of San Jose del Cabo. Hey, if it's good enough for Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo's wedding guests... (Doubles from $285, Hotel El Ganzo)

Where to eat
Flora Farm
Throw a rehearsal dinner under the stars at this 10-acre working farm with views of the Sierra de la Laguna mountains. Almost every ingredient in that pork-belly confit and wood-fired pizza is grown on site— as is the fruit in those watermelon juleps.

What to do
Casa La Laguna
At this 10,000-square-foot, six-bedroom villa, you can throw a beachfront ceremony for 150, then party all night by the pool. Plus, the hacienda has a spa, perfect for a pre-wedding massage or mani-pedis with your girls. (Villa rental from $3,600, Casa La Laguna)

The Honeymoon

Where to stay
One & Only Palmilla
Hit by Hurricane Odile in 2014, this haute retreat got a chic makeover before reopening last spring. The Jean-Georges steak house is new, but the next-level amenities, yacht, butler service are the same ones couples have been swooning over for a decade. (Doubles from $950, One & Only Palmilla)

Where to eat
Cocina del Mar at Esperanza, an Auberge Resort
This crazy-romantic al fresco eatery comes with crashing cliffside waves and sick sunset views. Nearly as spectacular? The inventive four-course tasting menu— try the kale-and-poblano cannelloni and tuna with avocado-sake puree.

What to do
San Jose del Cabo Art Walk
Every Thursday evening between November and June, the Art District opens its doors and serves up live music, wine, and small bites. Start practicing those haggling skills; the silver bangles, fire opals, and hand-painted pottery are to die for.
