Cabo San Lucas: Seaside Nuptials
No matter how strange or unique a bride’s special request may be, the Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas strives to make it happen. From all-vegan five course wedding dinners, multi-tiered wedding cakes sugared entirely with Splenda, and dogs walking down the aisle wearing special crowns, the wedding consultants at this ultra luxurious property gracing Mexico’s most famous coastline have seen and done it all.
According to Arianna Ocampa, one of Esperanza’s wedding consultants, “We once had a whale jump out of the water during a wedding photo shoot, behind the couple as they posed on the beach.” A special moment, indeed, and one of many available to brides and grooms at this top-ranked resort.
You won’t find coffee for less than five dollars a cup, but the bad news ends there. Esperanza is sheer perfection from the moment you enter the lovely courtyards, open-air reception, and are whisked straight to your room for a private check-in.
Poolside service is incomparable as buckets of iced Panna water are delivered upon arrival along with complimentary afternoon fruit skewers, miniature pina coladas, and other refreshments.
Cabo San Lucas’ famous Baja fish tacos have reached their pinnacle at the Esperanza restaurant overlooking the water, where all seafood is brought in from local sources. And for relaxation, look no further than the spa – a tranquil escape offering steam, outdoor Jacuzzi, relaxations areas, fresh juice mixtures, and top-ranked services.
For romance, every casita on the property has either a hammock or its own Jacuzzi tub on the deck, and each room faces the ocean.
Esperanza is not for those trying to have a wedding on a budget. This is a grand place, with services, cuisine, and an atmosphere to match. But sometimes, you do get what you pay for. At Esperanza, as your personal concierge attends to your every waking desire, you will find that the stress you left behind in the real world, is indeed the last thing on your mind.
