  • What is the minimum and maximum number of guests that Villa Santa Cruz can accommodate for an event?

    The Villa is perfect for both small and large celebrations. We host intimate affairs for just two people or larger weddings with up to 100 guests maximum.

    What is the basic fee structure?

    We require a 3 night minimum rental of the Villa (2 nights in the low season) and charge a separate event fee based on the number of invitees. Please inquire directly for rates.

    What is included in the event fee?

    The event fee includes the use of multiple on-site locations for ceremony, cocktail and reception celebrations on the day of the wedding, six strands of bistro lighting strung over the back lawn, and cleaning the day of the event and the morning after.

    Catering, rentals, music, flowers, etc. are not included and must be arranged separately.The event end time is no later than 12 midnight.

    If you’d like to host additional events at the Villa (i.e. welcome pool party, Rehearsal Dinner or Sunday Brunch), an additional discounted event fee may apply. Please inquire to discuss directly.

    How many people can sleep on-site?

    There are two homes available on the property, Villa Santa Cruz and Casa Tres Palmas (this home is on the other side of the pool). Villa Santa Cruz can sleep 10 guests and Casa Tres Palmas can sleep 8, for a total of 18 on the property. We recommend that our wedding groups book both homes to ensure privacy.

    Where do the rest of my guests stay?

    We have a list of accommodation options for your guests that include neighboring casitas, vacation rentals (some are walking distance, others are a short drive) and hotels in Todos Santos.

    Is there a service that can shuttle my guests between their hotel/vacation rental and Villa Santa Cruz?

    Yes

    Do you offer wedding coordination?

    We know that planning a wedding from a distance can be tricky, and want to make the process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We can be as involved as you need – from rolling up our sleeves and coordinating all vendors, having you do all the prior planning and stepping in just for “day of” coordination, or we can be completely hands off. Please inquire directly for rates. We provide all couples with our list of preferred vendors.

    Can we bring in our own alcohol?

    Yes, you are welcome to bring in outside alcohol. We do not charge any corkage fees.

    Can I get legally married in Mexico?

    The vast majority of our couples are married legally in their home country and then have a purely symbolic ceremony at Villa Santa Cruz. They find this is an easier and less expensive option.

    If you’d like to be legally married in Mexico, we can put you in touch with professionals who will guide you through the process (requirements include blood tests and health certifications, translation of birth certificates in Spanish, etc.)
