Los Cabos, Mexico, rising above Hurricane Odile
Who would believe that it was only last year that Hurricane Odile made landfall in Los Cabos, and left behind widespread and severe damage, affecting the tourism industry it relies on heavily. Today, Los Cabos is almost a hundred percent operational and is again luring hundreds of thousands tourists from all over the world.
Los Cabos has risen above the effects of Hurrican Odile, thanks to impressive coordination between government agencies, hotel and resort owners, and its resilient locals. Out of the 66 of the Hotel Associations properties, 60 are now fully operational, and six others are set to open soon, namely: The West Resort & Spa, Me Cabo, Melia Cabo Real, El Ganzo, Dreams, and Casa Del Mar. Aside from thousands of hotel rooms that are now available for occupancy, 4,000 new rooms is forecasted to become available in the next three years when hotels such as Breathless by AM Resorts, Montage Hotels & Resorts, Park Hyatt, VieVage Los Cabos from Auberge Resorts, Mar Adentro by Encanto, JW Marriott, Le Blanc Spa Resort, NoBu and Solaz of Starwood luxury collection, and Ritz Carlton Reserve, start its operations in Los Cabos.
Another evidence of its recovery from the destruction of Hurricane Odile is the 101,000 airline seats that were added in the first half of 2015. In fact, Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and WestJet are adding flights linking Los Cabos to cities in California, New York, Texas, as well as Toronto in Canada.
To quote Los Cabos Tourism Board Managing Director Ruben Reachi,"It’s great to see most of the destination's hotels back to normal and look forward to what's next", he also said that "The Air Route Committee has reported a 39% growth in seat supply to Los Cabos in the past five years and with so much on the horizon it is only natural that this will continue to grow".
