Cabo Hammered by Lidia

Cabo Tropical Storm Lidia Aftermath  

Sept 9, 2017

Tropical Storm Lidia  hammered Cabo early last Friday dumping a total of 27 inches of rain over several days, killing seven with 13 missing. It is expected the toll will go higher.

Authorities say the death toll could rise as they survey the damage and the flood waters recede.
State Tourism Secretary Luis Genaro Ruiz told the Washington Post that 20,000 tourists were stranded after airlines suspended flights to the area. 1,400 people reportedly occupied the area’s storm shelters.

At least two of the storm’s victims were electrocuted by downed power lines, while others were swept away trying to cross flooded areas.

Baja California Sur Governor Carlos Mendoza said it was, “the largest amount of water we have had since 1933.”

 According to reports, flood waters ripped a baby out of a mother’s arms when she tried to cross a flooded area.

And while the extent of the devastation pales in comparison to the city of Houston that continues to reel from Hurricane Harvey – and the eastern seaboard waits with bated breath to see what will come of Hurricane Irma – major weather events like these remind us that major weather events know no borders. Climate change knows no borders.

Terrorism Vs. Medical and Dental Tourism

medical tourism

The long-term effects of terrorism on medical and dental tourism are difficult to predict, just as the short-term consequences have been and remain hard to measure.  The fear and behavioral changes brought about by the unknown have always been somewhat of a quagmire, and throwing the mentally ill, bombs, guns, zealots and terrorists into the mix complicates matters even more.

New Cabo Marriott Features Mexican Strawberry Soup

                   Sophisticated Tranquility: JW Marriott Los Cabos   

Marriott Puerto Los Cabos - 


(Los Cabos, Puerto Los Cabos - east of San Jose del Cabo)

Perhaps the quality sought by any resort hotel the world over is an atmosphere of unassailable tranquility. The new JW Marriott Los Cabos has achieved this aim with striking architecture that celebrates various Mexican architectural styles without sacrificing contemporary modernity or local environs.

The approach to the hotel is perhaps deliberately disarming—the boxy brown building is neither striking nor imposing from the roadway, distracting little attention from the azure blue ocean almost incongruously juxtaposed against a rocky sun-baked coast. However, pulling into the porte cochere and stepping behind an imposing partition reveals the payoff: a cool, soaring hallway that draws the eye across terraced reflecting pools and to the sparkling sea. Check-in is conducted at minimalist desks with peripherals hidden away in drawers, while guests sip on Arnold Palmers with or without alcohol.

This hacienda-style house, known as Villa Miguel, is in the gated Cabo del Sol golf community on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. The 180,000-acre resort was built along a two-mile stretch of the Sea of Cortez coastline, just minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas. It includes several subdivisions with custom houses and condominiums facing the ocean or the fairway.

Villa Miguel, which has four bedrooms and four and a half baths over 3,800 square feet, offers both gulf and golf.

Los Cabos - Cabo and Puerto Los Cabos Hyatts Reviewed

The Many Faces of Los Cabos
It would be accurate to say that Los Cabos is like two great destinations in one.
That’s because this area, located at the tip of Baja California Sur in Mexico, is actually comprised of two distinct regions, each with their own very unique personality.
It includes Cabo San Lucas, a high-energy locale with lots of activity and entertainment. But the other half of this dual-personality destination is San Jose del Cabo, which exemplifies the picture-perfect old authentic Mexican town with all the quaint touches like cobblestone streets and traditional cuisine.

Cabo Vacation - Don't Miss The Exciting Puerto Los Cabos

The 6 Best Ways to Experience Puerto Los Cabos

A 2,000-acre master-planned resort community on Los Cabos’ East Cape, Puerto Los Cabos continues to retain its low-key demeanor while evolving into a destination for non-conformists. With a focus on celebrating nature and culture, this gateway along three miles of white sand beach balances progress while maintaining a sense of tradition and community.
At its centerpiece is the 200-slip (400 slips upon completion) Puerto Los Cabos Marina, where life plays out via fishing charters and market with stalls showcasing daily catches hauled in by local fishermen. The vibe provides a refreshing twist from the buzz and chatter typically associated with Cabos San Lucas.

NBC News Dental Insurance Report - Is it worth the cost?

Image result for images dental tourism

By Marilyn Lewis/MoneyTalksNews

You need medical insurance, if only to protect against the cost of an accident or illness so expensive that you could be ruined financially. But do you really need dental insurance?
It’s an interesting question, because you can avoid the most likely causes and expenses of dental problems, decay and gum disease, by brushing and flossing your teeth diligently. But some teeth are more prone to problems, and when they have a problem, the costs can mount quickly.

Here's the latest medical (and dental) tourism trends from Huffington Post

The Cleveland Clinic just announced plans to develop a hospital near Buckingham Palace in London. Cruise ship spas are now staffed by medical doctors and licensed acupuncturists.

The United States once had the world’s market share of in-bound patients seeking healthcare from “the best healthcare system in the world.” Now that the U.S. is well-acknowledged to be the most expensive healthcare system in the world, medical tourism is both in-bound and, increasingly, out-bound, with at least 1.4 million Americans seeking healthcare abroad in 2016, according to Visa.

Visa estimated that the U.S. out-bound healthcare market was valued at $439 bn in 2015, and will grow 25% a year in the next decade.

Canada soon will be visa free for Mexicans - 

By Cabo writer David Mandich

Trump has made repeated calls for a wall to be built along the US-Mexico border to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and refugees. In doing so he raised his stature to super-star among conservatives in this US Presidential campaign.

This week Canada bombed his wall before it even got built. 

Prime Minister Trudeau just announced that Mexicans can enter Canada without visas for up to 6 months beginning Dec. 1, 2016.

John Rodriguez was out on his commercial fishing boat with his wife, son and a friend when he overheard an urgent plea for help from the Coast Guard about a 63-foot sport fishing boat named Invicta that struck rocks off the Coronado Islands at around 5 a.m. and was taking on water.

It's 'bout time.

The past few months around the Pacific have been a bit slow, to say the very least. Sure, there’s been a few great moments, but when compared to the start of summer and that brilliant winter brought by El Niño, things have been pretty terrible around Southern California and Hawaii. But that all may soon change, as there appears to be some relief on the horizon.

Lady Gaga is a Hit With Cabo San Lucas Orphans

Lady Gaga is one of the most incredible singers. But apparently Lady Gaga doesn't even need a stage in order to show off her killer vocals.

The 30-year-old songstress performed an amazing rendition of her song Born This Way for a little boy called Christian at an orphanage in Mexico on Sunday.

While she’s currently on vacation following a comeback year and work on a new album, Lady Gaga seemingly can’t pull herself away from charitable causes. She performed an emotionally-charged a capella version of her smash song “Born This Way” at a Mexican orphanage over the weekend.

Puerto Vallarta - Elizabeth Taylor, John Huston's Favorite Haunt is a Great Place To Retire

In 1963, Elizabeth Taylor followed Richard Burton to a sleepy little port on Mexico’s west coast where he was starring, along with Deborah Kerr and Ava Gardner, in a John Huston-directed film called Night of the Iguana.

 Puerto Vallarta's Historic District has over a dozen galleries, fine restaurants and nighclubs

For his movie set, John Huston chose Mismaloya, a small village just south of Puerto Vallarta in the Mexican state of Jalisco, for its resemblance to a crumbling coastal village of the 1940s. Elizabeth Taylor took up residence in nearby Puerto Vallarta, which in the 1960s already had a small community of both Mexican and expat artists and writers, drawn by the weather, natural beauty, and relative isolation.

Trump's Baja California condo project left buyers feeling betrayed and angry.


Sandra Sapol, owner of EmbroidMe in Encinitas, speaks about her experience investing in a Trump development in Baja California in which she and her husband lost a substantial amount of money. (Misael Virgen / San Diego Union-Tribune)

By Michael Finnegan

When Stephenee Simms heard in 2006 that Donald Trump was building condo towers in Baja, the lure of a posh weekend getaway on the rustic coast just south of Tijuana was hard to resist.

Simms, then an aerospace purchasing agent living in Canoga Park, said she used her life savings to pay a deposit of just over $50,000 for unit No. 602, a one-bedroom overlooking the Pacific.

The sales team gave her a book, bound in blue suede, describing a resort where residents “relax by the infinity-edge pool, margarita in hand, as the cabana boy brings fresh towels.”

It featured Trump, shown smiling in a French gold-leaf chair, telling readers that no words or pictures “can possibly describe what is about to take shape here, but it is certainly going to be the most spectacular place in all of Mexico.”

In the end, nothing at all was built at Trump Ocean Resort, and Simms lost her money. As did about 250 other buyers, most of them from Southern California.
