Millions to Promote Cabo

Following the disbandment of the National Tourism Council, which spent millions every year in promoting Mexico abroad, the local hotel and restaurant associations are pitching money to promote Los Cabos in Mexico, the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom and China.

The lodging tax this year will raise some $12 million for our local tourism promotion fund and the hotel and restaurants associations pitched in an additional $2.6 million. More business associations are expected to jump in and fund this effort.

In comparison, the Las Vegas tourism board dedicated $101.5 million to advertising in the 2018-19 fiscal year. Are we that poor?

 

Don Koll Gets New Lamps

Not Mr. Koll, the developer of Palmilla. He passed away in 2011. During his lifetime he donated a soccer stadium with an 8-lane race track and grandstands in Cabo San Lucas, which bears his name. The lamps were damaged by hurricane Odile and following storms. Last week, the Coppel Foundation from the Pueblo Bonito group donated 60 new high-efficiency LED lamps, which will save the city 50-percent in electricity consumption. The lamps are the same as the ones you can find at the San Diego Padres Petco Park stadium, the Dallas Cowboys’ ATT stadium in Dallas, and Wimbledon in the U.K. Thank you, Coppel Foundation!

Wanna Spend the Night on the Cabo Arch?

Climb it and you will find out you can’t climb back down. That is what happened to 5 youngsters who thought of having a good time hiking the Solmar mountain and end on top of the arch. The Navy responded to a call for help but could not find them as they were looking for other ways to come down. It wasn’t until dawn the next day that a lifeguard spotted them and called for help again. The scared and tired group was reprimanded and told that hiking the arch is a no-no.
