Some of Cabo Social’s team answer reader’s most frequently asked questions about Los Cabos and Baja Sur, Mexico.

ABOUT LOS CABOS EVERY WEEK, OUR U.S. PHONE AND EMAIL INBOXES ARE FLOODED WITH A VARIETY OF QUESTIONS ABOUT CABO. THE PEOPLE WRITING AND CALLING ARE DIFFERENT, BUT THE QUESTIONS ARE USUALLY THE SAME. THE FOLLOWING ARE THE MAJORITY OF THOSE QUESTIONS, ANSWERED BY SOME OF OUR LOCAL CABO SOCIAL STAFF.

DO I NEED A DIFFERENT PLUG OR CONVERTER TO PLUG IN MY LAPTOP OR IPHONE? No. Electricity is the same here in Mexico as it is in the U.S. IS THE TIME THE SAME AS SOUTHERN CA? No. Cabo and Baja Sur are actually on Mountain Time, one hour ahead of California.

01. HOW DO I GET CASH WHILE IN CABO? Answer by Danny Ramirez (Photographer): Most banks have ATM machines, which primarily dispense Mexican pesos. When using your foreign credit or debit cards, the total on your statements will reflect whatever the exchange rate was the day of the transaction. 02. HOW DO I GET OUT TO LOVERS BEACH? Answer by Answer by Kevin Dennis (Photographer): Lover’s Beach and the Cabo Arch, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean is a very unique place in the world. Easiest way to get there is to catch a water taxi from Medano Beach or the marina. Wear something you can get wet in up to your waist. And be careful with camera equipment –You can never be too sure of exactly how wet you might get. 03. WHAT IF “SOMETHING” HAPPENS? WHO CAN I CALL? Answer by Crissty Santana (Mexico Account Executive): Be safe and stay healthy and out of trouble. But, just in case, here are the details. In an emergency, it’s NOT 911, from a cell phone or landline, dial 066. Other important numbers: American Consulate: (624) 143-3566, Canadian Consulate: (624) 142-4262, Federal Highway Patrol: (624) 146-0573 and (624) 146-1240, Cabo San Lucas Fire Department: (624) 143-2466, San José del Cabo Fire Department: (624) 142-2466, Red Cross: (624) 143-3300, Airport: (624) 122-1486, Medical assistance is available at AmeriMed: (624) 143-9670 or Northwest Medical: (624) 143-5404.

CABO-SOCIAL.COM

HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVE IN CABO? Population of Los Cabos is estimated to be slightly over 200,000 people.

04. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CABO, LOS CABOS, SAN JOSÉ DEL CABO AND CABO SAN LUCAS? Answer by Edel Muñoz (Web Department): In English, Los Cabos means “The Capes”, and refers to the combined townships of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, the Tourist Corridor and the East Cape. San José del Cabo is north of San Lucas, and is home to the area’s international airport (SJD). Cabo San Lucas is at the very tip of the Baja Sur peninsula, where you can find the famous Cabo Arch. 05. HOW DO I MAKE PHONE CALLS? Answer by Juan Bernardo Mejía (Graphic Designer): That is a loaded question. Here is a breakdown: Hotels may impose a surcharge on calls made from the room. Try calling collect or use a calling card. Not all foreign cell phones receive service here. Caution, your mobile may be roaming and your roaming fees may be very expensive. Consider consulting your mobile phone provider before placing or receiving calls while in Mexico. Many cafes, internet cafes, restaurants and businesses offer complimentary or inexpensive phone call services to the U.S., and Canada. How to dial: 1.) Call U.S. from U.S. cell phone: dial 00 + 1 + area code + telephone number. 2.) Call local land line from another land line, or your cell phone: dial the seven-digit number. 3.) Call a local cell phone from a landline: dial 044 + area code + telephone number.

06. CAN I DRINK THE WATER? Answer by Roberto García (Mexico Account Executive): Groundwater, from surrounding mountains and filtered through the earth’s natural gravel and sand, is the original source for most of Los Cabos’ water. Major hotels, commercial properties and restaurants have purified water. Many resorts desalinate and purify their own water. But buying bottled water is always a safe bet. 07. HOW DO I GET AROUND? Answer by Pilar Jiménez (Art Production Manager): By foot is a great option, but a car is a must if you want to experience both Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, or take a side trip (such as on page 32). Car Rental Tips: Minimum age to rent is 24, a valid driver’s license and a major credit card are required, mileage is usually free, gas prices are about the same as in the U.S. –return the car with the same amount of gas. Your own insurance company may not cover you in Mexico, so opt for full coverage insurance. Taxis: From San Lucas to San José, expect to pay about $36 usd each way. Public buses run as shuttles between San Lucas and San José. The ride takes about an hour with highway stops at major hotels along the Corridor. Cost is less than $5 usd each way. Buses also run to the Pacific coast towns of El Pescadero, Todos Santos and even to Baja Sur’s capital city of La Paz.

HELLO DIGITAL! When launching this publication in March of 2006, it was obvious to us that digital was the way of the future, but we also knew that print was still a necessary and viable editorial vehicle at that time. Over the past five plus years of publishing Cabo Social Magazine, we have impacted over 3-million readers from Mexico, the U.S., Canada and beyond—an accomplishment that we are incredibly proud of. Currently, we recognize that a brave new, and digitally dominant world (web, iPhones, smart phones, iPads, etc) is upon us. One example of this is when we first release a new issue of Cabo Social; by the time several hundred print magazines have been read, several thousand already read the online issue. Synchronously, as strong supporters of the environment, we also identify that printing a magazine, then 18-wheeling thousands of copies from the U.S. down 1,200 miles to Los Cabos is not a footprint that we are excited about. Thus, we have decided to discontinue the monthly paper version of Cabo Social Magazine after this issue. Moving forward, we will be increasing our distribution by

12

AUG/SEPT 2011

intensifying Cabo Social’s online exposure through massive web and social marketing. Since we are no longer limited by the high cost of printed pages, Cabo-Social.com will not only focus its resources on expanding its distribution and reach, but will also vastly increase and improve its written and visual content. Plus, using social media and data gathering, centering on digital will allow us to improve upon our personal relationship between Cabo-Social.com, its advertisers and you, our readers. As always and in short, our goal is to continually strive to provide you, our readers and followers, with a better overall experience. Additionally, we will continue to expand our flourishing Haut Group (www.hautgroup.com) product suite, including the voucher, ticket and souvenir site TheCaboStore.com, the Los Cabos entertainment site Hautter.com and the members-only HAUTCARD™ loyalty program. –Derrick and Anastasia Grahn

CABO SOCIAL IS EVOLVING! Thousands of reader’s enjoy Cabo-Social.com each and every month. Plus, we continue to reach out to our 60,000+ email members, plus our twitter and facebook followers and friends. Along with this we continue to aggressively launch digital campaigns for businesses intent on pursuing the cutting edge of growth in Los Cabos. Some results of this reach and these campaigns can be seen in the growth of The Cabo Store (see page 19). The Cabo Store allows Los Cabos businesses to sell and showcase their goods and services, plus offers amazing discount vouchers, like 50% off at Hacienda Cerritos (yes, the stunning boutique hotel you saw on page 6). The world is becoming virtual, and Cabo Social is Cabo’s digital leader. Cabo Social is more than a luxury publication; it is also a current events portal for those people intent on knowing their community and what is happening in it —i.e. the burgeoning organic movement, the expanding focus on fitness (Boot Camp, Stand Up Paddle, kite surfing and tennis to complement our traditional forms

of recreation), charitable giving (LCCF, Humane Society) and passionate environmentalism (Go Green, Save Palmilla Beach, Catch & Release, and SOS). The Go Green movement has caught our attention and to that extent we are accelerating our evolution to a purely digital magazine. Cabo Social going paperless will save millions of sheets of paper each year! Not only is this a huge win for the environment, it will also allow us to focus our full attention on getting our message and the messages of our advertisers out to more fans and supporters of Los Cabos. Already our online subscribers number 900% more than the number of magazines we print. Los Cabos is right on the verge of becoming the home we all hoped it would be. The world is only just beginning to discover what many of us enjoy every day. New flights are being added everyday from many destinations, such as the new Virgin Airlines flights from San Francisco. It’s only beginning, and Los Cabos, along with Cabo Social, are just getting started.

THE BUZZ Health & Beauty SENZA WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF KARINA GONZÀLEZ DE GUZMAN, WHO FOUNDED THE SPA SIX YEARS AGO.

SENZA,

REINVENTING THE LUXURY SPA By Suzanne Jones and Chris Sands

Versión en español en: www.cabo-social.com/espanol A DEVOTED HOMEMAKER with previous experience as an entrepreneur in Mazatlan, Karina González wanted to open a spa that wasn’t located at an exclusive, high-end resort, and catered solely to visiting tourists. She wanted to provide good quality spa services that were available to everyone in Cabo San Lucas, and that were priced accordingly. Senza has built their reputation on this kind of inclusivity. They offer pampering spa services and treatments not only to affluent visitors, but also to those who live and work here. They want to indulge those who

26

AUG/SEPT 2011

have worked so hard to make Los Cabos a tourist mecca, often without access to the luxury amenities that resort staff provide to visitors on a daily basis. “Our goal at Senza is to be the leading spa company in the area,” Karina said. “We want to offer locals and tourists alike a unique spa concept that is designed to not only satisfy their expectations, but exceed them. We know that client satisfaction determines our success, and we are committed to offering them quality professional services at affordable prices.”

CABO-SOCIAL.COM

This commitment is evident when you walk through the doors at Senza and experience the warmth and hospitality of the staff. They go to great lengths to provide high quality services based on the individual preferences of their clients. These personal touches, along with their ongoing desire to make everyone feel special, have taken spa services in Los Cabos to a new level. These services include hair styling and color treatments using products from top of the line producers like L’Oreal, Kerastase, Paul Mitchell, and Goldwill. Professional make-up applications are also available, as are manicures and pedicures, waxing, and state of the art laser hair removal. Top brands such as Natura Bisse (Barcelona) and Guinot (Paris) are used for Senza’s facial treatments, and the experi-

enced and knowledgeable staff is readily equipped to handle skin of all types and ages. Services such as microdermabrasion, diathermy, body wraps, scrubs, and many types of massage are available to aid in relaxation and overall well-being. Senza is always striving to improve their offerings, continually working to bring the latest salon and spa trends to Los Cabos. This includes keeping up to date on the latest treatments and innovations in the industry. They were the first in Cabo San Lucas to offer the Kerastase Chronologiste hair treatment, and Shellac manicures. “We all want to look good, feel young and beautiful, and be relaxed and in harmony with mind and body,” Karina said, summing up Senza’s appeal. “We want to look and be our best, whether at home, at work, or out on the town.” (624) 104 3600.

BAJA BREWING COMPANY - The Baja Brewing company opened four years ago in San Jose del Cabo, and quickly established themselves as the gold standard for Los Cabos beer lovers. They have since opened a second location in Cabo San Lucas, on the rooftop terrace of Cabo Villas, where patrons can enjoy the stunning views of the Sea of Cortes, Land’s End, and Bahia San Lucas from the elevated VIP deck. But despite the great views, the focus at Baja Brewing Company remains on the beer. There are five bottled options on the menu, ranging in fullness from cream ale to oatmeal stout. Draft beers can change according to the season, but Baja Blond, Cactus Wheat, Peliroja, and Escorpion Negro are available year round. The Peyote IPA will please hops lovers, particularly those who like Northern California style ales. A flight of draft beers is available for those who wish to sample the full range of offerings. The menu contains pub fare like fish and chips, burgers, and pizzas, as well as New York strip and a superb coffee dusted filet mignon. The atmosphere is comfortable, with the occasional touches of elegance. On cool nights, curl up by the fire pit. Live Flamenco on Friday nights. CSL (624) 143 9199 / SJC (624) 146 9995

T

he Nikki Beach White Party VI Anniversary was held on Saturday, April 16, with a huge crowd of Cabo’s haut monde on hand in a fashionable and apropos array of designer whites to celebrate in the type of style that normal people only dream about. The event was held poolside, under a full moon, with an international cast of deejays, musicians, and dancers on hand to entertain the social set at ME Cabo Hotel, providers of an eyecatching and dramatic spectacle that featured spotlights, smoke, sparklers, and a spectacular fireworks display over the beach just before midnight. The VIP cocktail party began at 7pm, with the best and brightest ushered through the velvet ropes, and making their entrance down the sweeping spiral staircase into a fantasia of radiant white furnishings, palm trees, signature bars, and a giant video screen displaying images from Nikki Beach parties past, as well as advertising sponsors like Don Julio, Tequila Clase Azul, Grey Goose, Three Olives Vodka, Taittinger, Bacardi, Corona and Diamonds International.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 40 >> After cocktails and canapes, guests began making their way to the poolside VIP tables, with Ultra VIP tables going for as much as $1,500 USD (expensive, and worth every penny). Cabo’s smart set settled in for the evening on plush white couches, chairs and canopied sunbeds. White clad waiters kept the bottle service flowing from a menu that included Champagne and premium liquors, constantly moving to the beat as they replenished ice and mixers. Table boundaries quickly became moot, as revelers table-hopped and caught up on the latest local gossip, and impromptu dance sessions were the order of the night. The stage set was an island in front of the swim-up palapa bar, with a lineup that included Montreal native Jo Jo Flores and Roman Rosati on the turntables, and singer Julie McKnight belting out disco flavored songs over the deep house beats, including an incredible version of the very event appropriate Diamond Life, as the gorgeous Nikki Beach Energy Dancers took over the stage around her, decked out in flowing white headdresses and high-heeled boots for a riveting floor show, a kaleidoscopic vision that completely captivated the crowd. The Energy Dancers and body-painted women in white tiger stripes and platinum wigs circulated, climbing up on elevated platforms to provide the right atmosphere for the ever growing crowds. Meanwhile, the light show bathed the party in rich reds and purples, providing a suitably psychedelic atmosphere when violinist extraordinaire Miss Rachel Grace nearly brought the house down as she effortlessly shifted from classical to country to a version of Hava Nagila over the pulsating beats. Felly Sax followed with equal brilliance, showcasing a stirring series of saxophone solos as crowds lined the edge of the pool. If anything, the party seemed to pick up steam after midnight, with a steady crowd continuing to pour in as inspired party goers climbed onto the elevated platforms for impromptu auditions to become Nikki Beach Energy Dancers. A giant inflatable Corona/ Nikki Beach blimp hovered overhead as the full moon madness continued unabated, with resident DJ Felly providing a suitably entrancing soundtrack as fashionista revelers wandered the snowcolored grounds. The party never really ended, it just segued into the After Pool Party, which began at midnight and continued through sunset on Sunday.
