Honeymoon Destination #2

Not sure where to go for your honeymoon? Considering a destination wedding? All About Honeymoons and Destination Weddings' Monica Velasco shared her experience with us. Check out what she had to say below.

1. What (if anything) made this destination different from any other?
The Baja California Peninsula, better known as "Baja", is a beautiful combination of the desert and the sea. It is privileged to have the Sea of Cortes on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Beautiful rugged mountains make the backdrop spectacular. The ocean is a deep blue and the marine life is amazing: anything from dolphins, to marlin, sea lions and seals make it unique.

The winter months are chilly and not necessarily great for swimming...although some resorts do have heated pools. The best feature of the winter are the whales that come to mate in the region of Bahia San Ignacio area (on the Sea of Cortes side). If you are visiting Los Cabos, La Paz or Loreto, you will definitiley be able to see them from January through February. These months are perfect for a nice round of golf, which is very popular in the Los Cabos area.

Summer is extremely hot and sometimes the desert heat can get extreme. Still you are surrounded by water and what better option! Deep sea fishing, snorkeling, ATV runners, ziplining are a few of the numerous activities that you can do. By far, the best months to visit are April-May and October-November.

2. Would you rate this on YOUR top list of places to consider for a honeymoon? (How many other locations have you been to?)
Yes! This is definitely a romantic spot! The beaches are endless for walking a
nd the sunsets are spectacular. Shopping in downtown San Jose is a must, as well as barhopping in San Lucas. Or, just enjoying the view from your hotel.

3. What was the best feature of the entire resort/location?
Location...if you are staying in the Los Cabos area
, there is as much or as little as you want to do. Renting a car for one day and driving to nearby Todos Santos is definitely on my list of favorites. It's an easy 1-hour drive from Los Cabos or La Paz, and Todos Santos has become an important artist colony in Mexico (much like San Miguel de Allende). Also, it is the home of the famous Hotel California from the Eagles' song!

4. How was the process of traveling to this location in particular? Was it hard to find tickets? Flights booked? Etc?
Stress-free if you know what you expect from
your stay...make sure you are specific as to how much activity you want to have going on during your stay, as the resorts that are close to or in San Jose are quieter than the ones in San Lucas.

5. What did your itinerary look like on your stay there?
I go at least once a year and stay in La Paz (about 2 1/2 hours north of Los Cabos). This is a beautiful small town on the Sea of Cortes with lots of water-related activities. Very tourist friendly and reasonable prices.

6. Is this a location to consider for a destination wedding? What perks do they offer? Inclusive packages?
Yes! Most resorts have great wedding and Honeymoo
n packages that are included in your stay. Makes for a perfect sunset hour wedding with the sun setting on the horizon....
