Cabo in the Summertime
Just returned from a ten day stay in Cabo, from July 14th to 25th. The weather was quite warm (37 C.) and very humid. Locals that I talked to all remarked how unusually warm and wet the summer has been so far as it is already more like the weather normal for September. It had rained 3-4 times already and the desert was quite green – unusual for that time of year. Not to worry though, the air conditioning was working flawlessly!
With the temperature where is was I was quite surprised at how busy it was. The major hotels were booked up and running at near or full occupancy. Quite a few visitors were Canadians or Americans, but mostly were Mexican nationals from the mainland as Cabo is their summer holiday destination.
Ate some fabulous meals, not only at some of the better restaurants we visited but also at some of the locals favourites.
First, the “Campestre” Restaurant/Bar located on Adolfo Lopez Mateos y Camino al Faro Col. Matamoros for Mexican breakfast/lunch/dinner – delicious food at very reasonable prices. See their website at:
Second mention goes to Smoking Wally’s “Rolling Smoke” BBQ situated out on the main highway, on side road across from Costco. Wally makes a mean BBQ Smoked Rib platter!
Visit Wally’s Facebook Page for more information.
Of course, it wasn’t all fun and games, I was actually there to get stuff done. We spent several days working on some of the last finishing touches on our Roca Vista units. Artwork for the walls, light fixtures, cable management on the Smart HDTV and Internet (Netflix works great!), towel racks and hooks, shower curtains, bulk drinking water dispensers and other details too numerous to mention.
One of the most important things was to actually test drive the guest experience in our new rooms and I am happy to tell you that I spent a very comfortable ten day stay at Roca Vista. Even the overall Roca Vista complex is much improved – new paint, much larger pila (water storage) with increased flow from the city, much improved security and on site guest services. All in all, we are ready for your visit!
