Right at the water's edge, the ridiculously romantic Esperanza Resort provides a dreamy setting for a destination event. After a sunset ceremony on the crescent-shaped beach, segue into cocktail hour around the pool. Then, treat guests to a clifftop dinner on the stone terrace and end the night with a dance party in a stunning private room overlooking the Pacific. (And that's just your wedding day!)

Rather than rice, give guests "cascarones" (confetti-filled eggs) to break over you as you exit the ceremony -- it's considered good luck. Local crafter Susana Rassvetaieff will make them for $1.25 each (sweet.com.mx).

Pass up cheesy trinkets (seriously, what are you going to do with maracas?) for a vase from Necri Fine Mexican Handicrafts in nearby San Jose del Cabo. Another good bet: The store's tasty homemade hot sauce, Cabo Heat.
