Hola, Frankfurt! Los Cabos Goes Euro-Chic with New Flight
A lone deer sprints across a Los Cabos beach, kicking up sand against a backdrop of blue ocean waves.

Los Cabos, get ready to polish your “guten tags” and perfect that Parisian pout, because we're diversifying! A swanky new direct flight from Frankfurt, Germany, is about to open up our sun-kissed shores to a whole new crowd of sophisticated European travelers.

Operated by Cóndor, this twice-weekly route (November to April 2025) isn't just about bratwurst-loving Germans. Think of it as a gateway for the French, Swiss, Italians, Scandinavians, and even those stylish Bulgarians. We're talking over 16,000 new visitors and a billion pesos pumped into our economy. ¡Viva Los Cabos!

The aircraft, a fancy A330-900, features classes ranging from first class to economy. Translation: high-rollers, prepare to be wooed. Los Cabos is ready for an upgrade. So, what does this mean for Los Cabos?

  • Cabo cantina goes continental: Get ready for croissants alongside your chilaquiles, and perhaps a dash of lederhosen mixed in with those sombreros and serapes.
  • Brush up on your languages: “Hola”, “bonjour”, “ciao”, and a quick “hej” will be the new greetings along the marina.
  • Luxury with a European flair: Think beachfront villas decked out with Scandinavian minimalism, French champagne brunches, and maybe even a Swiss-inspired spa or two.

Los Cabos has long charmed our North American amigos, but this new flight signals a cosmopolitan shift. Ready for a little Euro-flair mixed with our classic Mexican warmth? We sure are!

Los Cabos Get a Magical Makeover

Los Cabos charming neighborhoods are about to become even more enchanting. The municipality is gearing up to join the “Magical Neighborhoods of Mexico” program, a fantastic initiative dedicated to sprucing up traditional towns and villages across the country.

What does this mean for Los Cabos? Think of it as a sprinkle of fairy dust on our already vibrant communities. Expect historic centers to be revitalized, showcasing their unique character and giving residents an even stronger sense of pride in the place they call home.

Launched in 2022 by the Ministry of Tourism, this program isn't your average city improvement plan. It's a celebration of neighborhoods that may not have “Magical Town” status but have that special something that makes them, well, magical!

So, what's the timeline? The wheels are in motion. Thanks to a collaboration between the BCS Government, the Secretariat of Tourism and Local Economy, and some awesome tourism industry partners, things will really start to take shape in 2024.

Imagine strolling through cobblestone streets bursting with color, discovering hidden murals that tell the neighborhood's story, or stumbling upon a lively plaza filled with music and laughter. The “Magical Neighborhoods of Mexico” program is all about bringing that extra dose of local charm to the places we love.

Get Your Fill at the Los Pozos Cultural Market

The Los Pozos Cultural Market is rollin' back into town on March 3rd, and trust us, you won't want to miss this fiesta of flavors, crafts, and good ol' fashioned fun. Homemade desserts, cheeses that'll make a Frenchman weep with joy, and enough colorful textiles and odd-looking plants to transform your home into a bohemian paradise. We're talking a market so full of life it'll make your regular grocery run look like a trip to the dentist.

This ain't just about snagging some unique goodies. The Los Cabos government is on a mission to boost the economy of our awesome rural communities. So, every peso you spend is like a high-five to the hardworking folks behind these fantastic products. The last market saw vibrant folk dancers from the Itotia Tepocatl ballet twirling and stomping to the sounds of Veracruz, Jalisco, and Guerrero.

The Lowdown

  • When: Every other Sunday (that means March 3rd is the next one!)
  • Time: 9 AM – 3 PM (Get there early for the best stuff!)
  • Where: Los Pozos subdelegation, Cabo San Lucas (near the recreational park)

Bonus: The powers-that-be are fixing up the rural road to Los Pozos, so even more folks can join in the fun.

The Dirt Road to Dark Secrets

Los Cabos, our paradise of sun, sand, and surf, now has a somber new claim to fame: a clandestine grave. The Baja California Sur Search Commission has unearthed a grim discovery, uncovering 113 remains and bone fragments on a dusty backroad between Miraflores and Agua Caliente.

It all started with an anonymous tip leading authorities to this macabre scene. Now, while tourists sip margaritas under the blazing sun, dedicated teams sift through the earth, searching for answers. Could these be some of our 952 missing, their names lost to the shadows of violence?

This discovery sends shivers down our spines, casting doubt on the illusion of safety in this popular destination. On February 21st, search crews armed with grim determination descended upon this desolate mountainside. Within days, 113 souls cried out from the silent earth, demanding justice.

The National Guard and the Secretary of Defense stand watch over this heartbreaking scene, while tenacious investigators and canine companions continue their relentless search. This chilling find makes Los Cabos just another tragic pin on a heartbreaking map. Mexico, a country of breathtaking beauty, has become scarred by over 5,600 clandestine graves since 2006.

Organized crime looms as a diabolical network across the nation, disappearing loved ones as a brutal war tactic. From the sprawling deserts of Sonora to the lush forests of Michoacán, and now to our own sun-kissed shores, families of the missing face an agonizing quest for closure.

Cabo's Winter of Cold Fronts Isn't Over Yet

Brrrr, Los Cabos! It looks like winter isn't quite done with us yet. Our friends at Civil Protection remind us that the official 2023-2024 winter season isn't hanging up its hat until May, and we've got a wild rumpus of cold fronts on the way.

They predicted a whopping 56 cold fronts, and 35 of those chilly chaps have already blown through. Turns out, December, January, and February were a party for cold fronts! Currently, we're in the midst of cold front number 35, hanging over the Gulf of Mexico and making things a bit blustery down here in the south.

Cold front number 36 just sashayed in like it owns the place, bringing a touch of chill to the north and northeast of Mexico. Civil Protection is saying watch out for March, as it's promising even more cold fronts. Remember, folks, we've still got another 20 of these frosty fellas 'til summer says hello.

Tips to Stay Cozy in a Cold Front

  • Layer up, amigos! Channel your inner stylish onion.
  • Hot chocolate is your new best friend. Maybe sneak in a splash of tequila for extra warmth.
  • Bust out those fuzzy socks. Preferably ones with dancing avocados or grumpy cats.
  • Find a sunny spot and soak it up. Vitamin D and a side of smugness for beating the chill.

Deer Caught Dashing on Cabo Beach

A video circulating those buzzing social networks has got everyone talking about a mystery deer spotted on one of our beautiful beaches. This little speedster was filmed making a mad dash towards a quieter stretch of sand, leaving us wondering where it came from and where it's headed now.

Authorities like Profepa and Semarnat seem tight-lipped about the whole situation, so your guess about this deer's fate is as good as ours. But let's face it, this isn't your average Los Cabos sighting! Naturally, the internet has a thing or two to say:

  • “There goes my spirit animal!”
  • “Gorgeous video, what a beautiful creature!”
  • “That little deer's got some moves!”

Is it a displaced deer searching for home? A beach-loving Bambi with a taste for margaritas? We may never know, but the legend of the Cabo Coastline Deer will live on in our hearts (and probably a few hilarious memes).

Did someone order a side of venison with their Cabo sunset?

Stay tuned, Los Cabos! We'll update you if this furry fugitive is ever apprehended, or better yet, spotted sipping a piña colada by the pool.
