Coco Bongo is Open!

The nightclub franchise, with locations in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Punta Cana of the Dominican Republic, is now open at the Plaza Bonita mall in downtown Cabo San Lucas.

The Coco Bongo live show includes a circus-like acrobatic show, dancers and singers dressed as world-wide recognizable characters; The Mask, Batman, Catwoman, Freddie Mercurys, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, The Green Goblin, Beetlejuice, the rock band Kiss, DC Comics villain Bane, and Roman soldiers from the Dark Horse comic books film adaptation, ''300'.” Add a state of the art light show and DJ dance music and you’ll experience an interesting, fun, happy, vibe.

Open National or International Bar cover charge runs from $90 to $140 bucks per person. Cabo hasn’t had a bar with cover charge in years, but we wish them well.

Mexico Rocks the U.K.

Los Cabos, the Mexican Caribbean, Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are showcasing these top Mexican destinations in three strategic locations: London, Manchester and Cheltenham at the annual Travel Roadshow 2019.

The UK is the most important European Market with over half a million British tourists visiting Mexico every year and that number is increasing steadily. Across the three days, attendees from some of the most important UK tour operators and travel agents, interacted with a range of exhibitors which included tourism boards and representatives of Los Cabos tourism fund, several local resorts and Aeromexico airlines.

 

It's finished!

The pedestrian bridge that crosses the four-lane in San Jose from the La Comer to the Chedraui Selecto store has been finished ahead of time. That should make a record-breaking for Mexico.

The responsible party is the Chedraui store chain, who stated that the bridge is already being used by locals and visitors. Pending is the installation of elevators, which will be here "soon."

 

Navy Rescues Young Whale

A young sperm whale that beached in at Mogote point in La Paz bay was towed away, twice, by navy sailors who responded to a concerned citizen’s call. The youngster measured nearly 40 ft and weighed an estimated 35 tonnes. It took several sailors, members of the beached marine mammals rescue network, and Profepa (Mexico’s environmental protection agency) officials several hours to tie it down and tow it to deeper waters.

However, the mammal turned in the wrong direction and got beached again. A second attempt was successful, as the whale was towed farther away.

The sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), or cachalot, is the largest of the toothed whales and the largest toothed predator. It is the only living member of the genus Physeter and one of three extant species in the sperm whale family, along with the pygmy sperm whale and dwarf sperm whale of the genus Kogia.

Mature males average 52 ft in length but some may reach 67 ft, with the head representing up to one-third of the animal's length. It has the largest brain on Earth, more than five times heavier than a human's. Well, it seems that this time that large brain wasn’t working well.

 

Rare Fish Found and Rescued

Brothers Jacob and Noah Thompson, of Austin, Texas, were preparing to go out for fly-fishing when they saw a struggling Oarfish washed up on the beach. Oarfish are large, greatly elongated, pelagic lampriform fish belonging to the small family Regalecidae. Found in all temperate to tropical oceans yet rarely seen as it lives in deep waters, the oarfish family contains three species in two genera. One of these, the giant oarfish (Regalecus glesne), is the longest bony fish alive, growing up to 36 ft in length.

The one found near Rancho Leonero on the East Cape measured about 8ft long and weighed about 7 lbs.

To revive the weakened animal, Jacob took it into the water and began pulling it backwards to fill its gills with water. After the fish was able to hold itself upright, the brothers watched it swim away and disappear into the ocean. Atta Boys!
