The Mexican government’s response to the crisis has been swift. Their $5 million recovery campaign was lauded by Greg Tallman, director of golf at Cabo del Sol. “The response from the federal government has been beyond incredible,” said Tallman. “This is the playbook for how to deal with a natural disaster.”

According to the Mexico Tourism Board, approximately 5,000 hotel rooms in Los Cabos are expected to open by October 15, with an additional 7,000 rooms open by mid-November, and a final 10,000 rooms to become available by mid-December.

Hurricane Simon Intensifies Off Mexico's Coast

Hurricane Simon Intensifies Off Mexico's Coast | Cabo San Lucas | Scoop.it
Simon has strengthened into a major hurricane in the Pacific, but still poses no direct threat to land.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Simon's maximum sustained winds increased to near 120 mph (195 kph) on Saturday, making it a Category 3 hurricane. Forecasters say Simon is expected to begin weakening Sunday.

The center says the hurricane is located about 365 miles (585 kilometers) southwest of the southern tip of the Baja peninsula and is moving west-northwest at 14 mph (22 kph). There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Simon is expected to produce 1 to 2 inches of rain, with isolated amounts up to 6 inches, in southwestern Mexico. Swells generated by the hurricane could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Hurricane RACHEL | Cabo San Lucas | Scoop.it

Hurricane Rachel is swirling in the Pacific far off Mexico's Baja California peninsula and poses no threat to land amid forecasts it will weaken in coming hours.

The hurricane's maximum sustained winds were around 85 mph (140 kph) early Sunday. It was centered about 470 miles (760 kilometers) west-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja peninsula and moving north-northwest at about 6 mph (9 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm might strengthen some early Sunday before slowing and weakening overnight. Forecasters add that Rachel is expected to become nearly stationary and likely weaken to a tropical storm sometime Monday.
