Our Recommendations

  • Currently, Cabo is not ready for touristic arrivals.  There is a lot of work to do.  If you have vacation plans during the next few weeks, you will want to contact your hotel and airline and change your dates to at least mid October. 
  • In October, there will still be work going on in Cabo, but as long as your resort is open for business, there will still be plenty to enjoy.  The tourist infrastructure always comes back quicker than the local areas, and Mexico is one of the world's best at this.  You will truly be surprised to see how quickly Cabo is restored, given the severity of the hit.
  • The beaches, the sunshine, the pool, the food, and the margaritas will all be here.
  • The marina is reportedly without structural damage and most boats were unharmed. 

Cruise Ship Update

  • Carnival Cruise Lines is stated to visit October 4. They have not yet cancelled the date
  • All cruises prior to this date have been cancelled and the ships are going to other Mexican ports like Puerto Vallarta instead. All cruises after this date are so far still a go.

Golf Course Update

  • Los Cabos Golf Resort reports no damage to the course. Closed for general  cleanup but reopening October 12.
  • Palmilla Golf Course sustained minimal damage.  Still assessing.
  • Pueblo Bonito reports that their Golf Course sustained only minimal damage and will reopen on October 1 along with their resorts.
  • Questro Golf will be re-opening all three of our golf courses on October 1st!  Thankfully the golf courses suffered no damage to the turf areas, and they are in great shape.  The only minimal damage on the golf courses were the bunkers, which lost some sand out of them.  The damage was not much worse than what happens after a good rainfall.  They  are working to restore the sand in the bunkers and the process will take some time due to the great number of bunkers they have. 

How Else You Can Help

As soon as Cabo is ready to welcome you again, there is perhaps no better way to contribute to the recovery than with your tourist dollars.  Every margarita you drink or taco you eat gives a hotel or restaurant worker a job, who then uses that money to buy things at the store, giving the store employee a job and money to spend to buy things at another store, and so on.  The impact is felt through this small community in so many ways.  Cabo needs you, especially in this already low season.  


We hope to see you in October when the resorts and town are ready to host you.
