New Public Buses for Cabo

Eight new Dina buses for public transportation were acquired by one of the companies that operate in Cabo San Lucas. This is unprecedented as we are all used to seeing old buses, medium and full size, and even yellow-colored imported school buses that have been discarded in the U.S. The new buses seat 22 people and are air-conditioned. We just hope they survive the multiple potholes and speed bumps in Cabo.


Pueblo Bonito group expands

This time, not in Cabo. After 10 years of planning, Alberto Coppel, Director of the Pueblo Bonito Group, revealed that they have acquired several hectares in the Mayan Riviera.

The group will invest over $100 million to develop a 900-room deluxe resort in Punta Maroma, one of the most pristine beaches in Cancun, and a favorite for the locals. Future plans include the Mexican central states of Guanajuato and Jalisco, as well as a project in the Dominican Republic.


Mexico Was Honored by Science Academy

At the official ceremony to present The Breakthrough Prizes, Mexico was honored in recognition to its support to develop and host the Great Millimetric Telescope that took the first-ever photo of a Black Hole in Space.

The team involved over 300 scientists from various countries who in group will be awarded $3 million. Mexico plans to use its piece of the pie to promote science studies within the young ones in the communities that surround the Telescope in the state of Puebla, Central Mexico.

The Breakthrough Prize is a set of international awards bestowed in three categories by the Breakthrough Prize Board in recognition of scientific advances. The awards are part of several "Breakthrough" initiatives founded and funded by Yuri Milner, along with Breakthrough Initiatives and the Breakthrough Junior Challenge.

Cabo Does Las Vegas

A pavilion to promote Los Cabos has been set up in Las Vegas at the IMEX America, one of the largest convention industry expos in the world. Twenty folks representing Los Cabos hotels and meeting rooms are present as we speak.

Our presence will furthermore enhance the robust hotel industry and meeting facilities available at our tourist destination.


New boutique hotel around the corner.

And it’s called Amor Boutique, not to be confused with your favorite Love Motel. Hahaha… This new hotel is part of the Besame Mucho (Kiss Me a Lot) Mexican hotel chain, which took its name from the famous romantic song. The hotel’s first choice of location was downtown Todos Santos, but the city’s regulations (do we have any of those?) wouldn’t allow it, so they looked around and bought an oceanfront property, found it, and are working on all needed permits. The boutique hotel will offer between 18 and 22 romantic rooms, and the usual treats: a Spa, pool, upscale restaurant and bar and the like. The opening date is unknown as dealing with city permits can take forever.

Los Cabos International Film fest changes venue.

For the Red Carpet opening event and for films showing, that is. Festival executives Alejandra Paulin and Mary Garzon announced that this year the Red Carpet event will take place on the Cabo Marina, outside of the Luxury Avenue shops in the Puerto Paraiso mall. The movies will be shown at Cinemex, also in the mall. They ditched the Cultural Pavilion because it is still in an awful state since Hurricane Odile hit it hard 5 years ago. The film festival will take place November 13-17 this year. See you there!
