Best Time of Year for your Los Cabos Wedding

Trying to find the best time of year to get married in Cabo? If you’re looking for warm (but not too hot) weather for your wedding day in Mexico, I always encourage October through June! In these months, the weather is beautiful, warm, and perfect for a beach wedding. While October – June is always best for a Cabo wedding, the rest of the year is still do-able too! It just might be a bit hot or rainy. But, if you choose the right Mexico wedding venue, there will be plenty of indoor options for your day if the weather doesn’t work out.

Cabo Airbnbs for your Wedding

  • Villa Luna Nueva – Can you imagine getting ready with all your favorite people at this Airbnb? How about celebrating your wedding festivities the evening before your big day? This Airbnb is perfect for your whole wedding party!
  • Cabo Airbnb – I cannot imagine a prettier pool + space for your Mexico Wedding!
  • Cabo Villa – take a peak through this one, it’ll take your breath away!
  • Los Cabos Stay with a View – what an incredible view of the Los Cabos sunset over the ocean!
