Los Cabos Resorts Open For Business As Hurricane Jimena Bypasses Destination

Los Cabos, Mexico (September 2, 2009) – The Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce today that the destination was spared significant impact from Hurricane Jimena. Hotels and resorts are fully operational and all tourism services throughout Los Cabos have resumed.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Jimena was officially downgraded to Category 2 status overnight as it traveled in a northwest direction away from Los Cabos. Additionally, the Mexican government has discontinued the hurricane warning for the entire southern part of the Baja California peninsula, the location of the resort destination. Forecasters predict that Jimena will continue to weaken as it moves inland.

From the beginning, the Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau was well prepared for the approach of Hurricane Jimena. The municipality of Los Cabos did not lose electricity throughout the duration of the storm and there have been no reports of injuries. Additionally, the San Jose del Cabo International Airport (SJD) and the Port of Los Cabos have re-opened.

“While we were well prepared for the storm, we are obviously very relieved that Hurricane Jimena passed us by,” says Gonzalo Franyutti, President of the Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau, “Now our guests can continue their vacations and enjoy our fine resorts and services without further concern.”

  1. I have just subscribed to the services of Mexico Premiere. It sounded like a good idea at the time. As I scrolled through the series of articles I noticed an overabundance of information on Cabo San Lucas. Since I live a few miles north of this overcrowded, hedonistic town I became seriously concerned that Mexico Premiere may have become the handmaiden of hype for oversold resort destinations. Where are your articles on the more rural charms of Mexico that we who have lived here for several years know and love?

  2. Having lived in Mexico on and off for the past few years and planning on retiring there in the future, we look forward to reading many more of your articles regarding not only Cabo San Lucas but many of the other beautiful cities in Mexico. I for one am a fan of Puebla and Monterrey!
