Many couples planning their nuptials look forward to choosing a honeymoon destination. That is, until they actually have to make that choice. There are so many wonderful spots where a couple can sneak away and enjoy days of relaxation, romance and fun. Yet, not all destinations are alike, and if you are one of the lucky couples considering just where to go for your honeymoon, consider Cabo.
With roughly 350 days of sunshine each year, Cabo has natural appeal to holidaymakers. It is not just a sunny place, though, and it has only recently developed as one of the premier destinations for celebrities as “A List” as Jennifer Aniston, the Kardashian clan, and George Clooney. Even in its earliest years, Cabo attracted the smart set with celebrities like Bing Crosby and John Wayne making the journey.
Why? Its location at the far southern tip of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico makes it a picturesque region of the country. It is located exactly where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, and where scenery is the norm. Not just any scenery – breathtaking scenery. Gorgeous beaches, unique rock formations, and mountains in the distance, create a place where almost any accommodation will provide amazing views.
The Honeymooner’s Appeal
So, why should you consider a honeymoon in this popular holiday destination? The scenery is one of the main reasons, but for sheer romance value it is hard to beat the appeal of this area.
It has picture postcard perfect beaches, but it doesn’t have the best snorkeling or even many swimmable beaches. Divers will appreciate Los Cabos Bay and the Sea of Cortez, but most visitors do the bulk of their swimming in the stunning pools that are so common throughout the area.
This means beaches tend to be less crowded. You can find many spots to savor a sunset each evening, or you can enjoy one of the many charming cruises that take in such sights as the famous El Arco and Lover’s Beach at sunset.
And while Cabo is known for its many premier resorts and hotels, it is also a true hotspot for stunning, private villas. With one, two and three bedroom properties in abundance, you can easily find the most idyllic and private escape for two. Perhaps you want a luxurious beachfront villa or maybe you would rather be in the hills of exclusive Pedregal and enjoy amazing views down into the marina and out to sea?
Most villas are equipped with plunge pools or larger infinity-edge pools, as well as Jacuzzis. Most have stunning balconies and terraces, luxurious interiors and even options to hire a chef or private masseuse to ensure your honeymoon is the ultimate escape. Most have concierge services that can ensure your every need is met.
And when you are ready to emerge from days of newlywed bliss, the town of Cabo San Lucas (one half of the Los Cabos area, with the other being historic and charming San Jose del Cabo) awaits. Amazing restaurants, fantastic nightlife, a charming and busy marina, plenty of low-key or over the top bars and clubs and lots of shopping make it a perfect spot to wander, people watch, sightsee and enjoy.
Out and About in Cabo
If you envision a more active honeymoon, Cabo is still the right choice. It has some truly stunning golf courses, an array of spas and sports facilities, a marina, and then there is that other half of Los Cabos already mentioned – San Jose del Cabo. Perfect for daylong sightseeing to its many historic and scenic destinations, it is a wonderful place to burn off a bit of energy.
Cabo is the perfect honeymoon destination offering guaranteed sunsets, ideal weather, and the option for a truly luxurious and private space in which to begin your new life together.
