Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas Overview

Cabo is still small and charming by any standards, with a population of under 40,000. And with the number of activities available to the visitor, you could easily imagine that you are in a giant amusement park. Golf has become a major factor in the Cabo San Lucas equation, with five championship courses complete and more on the way, Los Cabos has quietly become the golf capital of México.

Cabo has come of age. Located at the southernmost tip of the magnificent Baja peninsula, Cabo has been blessed with what many describe as the perfect climate. Average year-round temperature is 78 degrees, it is a little cooler in the winter and a bit warmer in the summer. For years Cabo was the remote playground reserved solely for private yacht owners. They flocked here to be near "Marlin Alley", as the waters around Cabo have often been described. The name is well deserved, as Cabo San Lucas is the undisputed billfish capital of the world.


The required paperwork for a Mexican marriage is similar to that required in U.S.A., with the difference being that the nearest Mexican consulate must validate all documents (the hotel or wedding coordinator can assist with this).

Here are the basic requirements:
- Current passport as proof of ID and marital status.
- Certified copy of both party's birth certificates.
- Tourist card (received upon arrival in Mexico) or visa.
- Names, addresses, nationalities, occupations and ages of both parents.
- Health certificate and blood test (hotels will help set up the tests, which must be done in Mexico).
- Four witnesses (these can be provided by a wedding planner or the hotel locally for an extra fee). Will also need to provide their names, addresses, occupations, ages and photo ID.

Typically, two to four days must be spent in Cabo San Lucas to complete the requirements, although less time may be required if our wedding coordinator is involved.

In addition, previously married couples need verification that a minimum of one full year has elapsed from the date of one of the following:
- Divorce: Final dissolution of marriage must be verified with a certified copy of the final divorce decree.
- Widowed: Must be verified with a certified copy of the spouse's death certificate.
