Cabo San Lucas has been one of the world's premier locations for destination weddings, honeymoons and renewal of vows ceremonies for over three decades; basically, since Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards married supermodel Patti Hansen at Hotel Finisterra in 1983.
Now that the Los Cabos region's spectacular natural advantages – golden sand beaches, year round sunshine, warm tropical breezes and the confluence of the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortés – have been paired with an influx of talented young chefs, and an emergent world-class cuisine featuring local ingredients with Pacific Rim influences, it has also become a popular destination for romantic wining and dining.
Two of the area’s most celebrated resorts, The Resort at Pedregal and One&Only Palmilla, are home to muy romántico dining spots. El Farallón at The Resort at Pedregal pairs fresh market style seafood with a magnificent cliffside setting perched above crashing Pacific Ocean waves. At Palmilla's Agua, Chef Larbi Dahrouch's "Mexiterranean" delights are accompanied by mood enhancing music and moonlight dancing on the Sea of Cortés.
Of course, Los Cabos' most romantic setting may belong to Sunset da Mona Lisa, a Tourist Corridor based restaurant that looks westward across Cabo San Lucas Bay towards the natural rock formations at Land's End. Sunset dining at this Italian bistro and seafood eatery provides a feast for all five senses, and remains one of the region's most memorably romantic experiences.
