Curator’s statement

Mexico is the perfect honeymoon spot, but even better for a minimoon for a quick and warm getaway right after the wedding. You and your forever person can relax by the beaches, adventure through Cabo San Lucas, explore Todos Santos, and cheers margaritas in the pool. The hotel choices range from five-star chic and modern luxurious stays to boutique and colorfully designed hotels. You only need a long weekend here to get in full relaxation mode post wedding, truly making it a great minimoon destination for West coast travelers.
