Details of the Grounds

Most couples at Grand Velas Los Cabos choose to have an outdoor wedding. The private resort ensures you will not have stragglers crashing your special day. Couples who want to exchange vows on the sand near the waves can use Azul Beach. Here, you can place your arbor before the waves and have your guests facing the ocean. You can use the Azul Garden if you choose to have a garden wedding. This option will give you all the views without the hot sand. They also have the Terraza del Mar for couples who prefer a solid flooring space.
