President Felipe Calderon Invites Global Leaders to Los Cabos for 2012 G20

In June we have already written about Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon and his visit to Los Cabos. In June, President Felipe Calderon and Governor Marcos Covarrubias visited a local school to kick start a new “personal I.D.” program that is being implemented for all Mexican children. He also inaugurated a Hospital and lastly attended a meeting with the Private Sector to announce that he is pushing for the G 20 to be hosted in Los Cabos in October 2012. Today we are happy to share with you that last week President Calderon addressed the Group of Twenty (G20) during a work session in Cannes, France and invited the global leaders to join him in Los Cabos, Mexico in June 2012 for the next meeting of the G20 and B20. As the annual G20 Summit comes to an end, preparations are well underway throughout Los Cabos to prepare for more than 7,000 attendees that will arrive in the destination. Referencing ongoing planning, the final communique from the G20, reads “On December 1st. 2011, Mexico will start chairing the G20. We will convene in Los Cabos, 6

Baja California Sur, in June 2012, under the Chairmanship of Mexico. Russia will chair the G20 in 2013, Australia in 2014 and Turkey in 2015. We have also agreed, as part of our reforms to the G20, that after 2015, annual presidencies of the G20 will be chosen from rotating regional groups, starting with the Asian grouping comprising of China, Indonesia, Japan and Korea.” President Calderón further stated, “I want to invite everyone to come to Mexico in June of next year, for the next G-20 and B-20. Believe me, Los Cabos is a little warmer than this place, there is plenty of sun, if you want to experiment with solar energy, etc. such as receiving sunlight on your own body. We will give a big welcome in Mexico this coming year.” With 13,000 total rooms in the destination, Los Cabos will dedicate 11,000 rooms to the G20 Summit, while the Mexican government will invest more than $47,000,000 into the development and promotion of the Summit.

In addition, a new 653,400 square foot Convention Center will house the G20 meetings and events. Designed to accommodate over 6,000 people, the Convention Center represents $100,000,000 investment by the federal government and a $1,500,000 investment from the State of Baja California Sur. The municipality of Los Cabos endowed a 15-acre tract of land which is located alongside a private golf community and boasts magnificent views for the building of the Convention Center, and the Los Cabos Tourism Board has also invested almost $1,000,000 in the project. The Convention Center will be designated a “green” facility, and will be designed with energy efficiency in mind and will be equipped with solar panels. Construction of the center is set to begin during the first week of November. About Los Cabos: Located at the tip of the 1,000-mile long Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos is home to award-winning hotels and resorts, championship golf courses, rejuvenating spas, world-class

sport fishing and much more. With a unique landscape of dramatic desert and white sand beaches, Los Cabos is an exotic escape within easy reach of most U.S. cities. About the G20: The G20 was originally established in 1999, in the wake of the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, to bring together major advanced and emerging economies to stabilize the global financial market. To tackle the economic crisis that spread throughout the world in 2008, the G20 members were called upon to further strengthen international cooperation. G20 Summits have been held in Washington in 2008, in London and Pittsburgh in 2009, in Toronto and Seoul in 2010 and this year, the G20 will take place in Cannes, France on November 3 – 4. News via Los Cabos Convention & Visitors Bureau. Image via Presidential website.

Infrastructure for the People Baja California Sur, 22 January 2012. President Calderón supervised work on the four-lane La PazTodos Santos-Los Cabos Highway and inaugurated the 90-kilometer stretch. This road will improve the economy in the south of the state and the quality of life of all the inhabitants by becoming an axis that will improve road links and reduce traveling times. The president declared that since Los Cabos is a crucial tourist center for Mexico, the inauguration of this construction will increase tourism and boost economic activity throughout the region. The project involved an investment of 3.5 million pesos and will enable the over 8,000 vehicles that travel along it every day to advance more safely and quickly. Travel time

between La Paz and Cabo San Lucas will be reduced from 2:15 to 1:30 hours. The size of the investment involved makes this one of the most important highways in the region, second only to the one from Mazatlán to Durango As part of the highway complex, the project will include a flyover in Todos Santos that will further reduce travel time. This flyover will also improve living conditions for the Todos Los Santos community, which will benefit from the reduced traffic flow. The president concluded by saying that in addition to improving road links between people, infrastructure triggers employment and in this case, will increase the flow of visitors and trade.

All our captains must meet the requirement of having a minimum of 3000 hours in Lear jets before we allow them in the left seat, so rest assured your crew is experienced on the aircraft they’re flying. All their training is done at Flight Safety Learjet training center in Tucson, AZ, and reinforced with recurrent, periodical training at our home base in El Paso, TX.  We have operated accident free since company inception, and that’s the result of our safety policies and crew training.

ACTIVI TIES

LAND’S END (The Point) Depths start out around 25 ft. with the opportunity to dive the canyon. Calm conditions allow you to get up close and personal with the resident sea lions that call this spot home. Loads of structure and life-covered rock walls are home to tropical fish, lobsters, hawkfish and even schools of tuna. Eels are another common sighting. Currents can get a little strong and unpredictable so dives here are best suited for the intermediate to advanced diver.

DIVE LOCATIONS

NEPTUNE’S FINGER Also located in Cabo Bay, this dive brings you to rock piles and boulders covered in sea sponges, gorgonias and sea fans. The usual colorful display of tropical fish complete the picture with a good chance of a visit from a sea turtle. With the help of local protection agencies and volunteers, sea turtles are making a comeback here in Cabo.

PELICAN ROCK SAND FALLS Located in Cabo Bay alongside the rocky cliffs that lead the way to Land’s End, this area offers dives starting at 20 feet. Drop down the walls with sea fans and schools of goat fish, puffers, eels, parrotfish and angels. Other common sightings are lobsters, jacks,rays and the occasional white tip reef shark. Most famous for Jacques Cousteau’s discovery of the “Sand Falls”, this is a great choice for a quick trip that’s only a 5 minute boat ride from the Cabo marina.

The 4 vital digital marketing trends for 2012.

NEWS

- Buy country-specific domain names (.co.uk for UK, .com.mx for México, etc.) - Create a mobile-friendly version of your website. - Use Facebook ads to target audience by demographics, interests, etc. - Master the usage of free tools like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. - Use services like foursquare and Gowalla to engage consumers. - Don’t forget to claim your Google Places page (Google Places Optimization).

No. 2 Video Advertising Leads the Way According to a recent report by emarketer, online video advertising spend in the US will cross the $3 billion mark in 2012. Online video marketing is an emerging trend due to two major reasons – better reach and better measurement. Since more than 1.3 billion videos are watched in the US per day, video advertising happens to be a rich medium to establish an emotional connection with consumers, engage them quickly and achieve a higher conversion.

No. 3 Gamification Drives Social Momentum Keeping an eye on what the future holds in its palm is key to growing your business and reaching out to new audiences. Trends will continue to change directions. And if you aren’t ready to embrace the upcoming developments, you can easily lose the race. As we proceed into 2012, it’s highly essential that you become cognizant of the top digital marketing trends.

Yes, it’s not just the latest fad. Though adopting this marketing approach depends on the kind of business you run, gamification can present some of the most potential opportunities you wouldn’t want to miss. To get started with it, you should first of all get the concept pretty clear in your mind. Gamification is not entirely similar to games. In fact, the concept that underlies the term is the application of gaming principles to Given below are four key trends that you’ll need to watch in 2012, so that non-game experiences in an effort to drive social momentum among the you can make your digital marketing efforts fruitful and elevate your audiences. Several brands have gamified their marketing strategies to engage customers (by offering incentives) and provoke them to take business to new heights. action. Start-ups can benefit from this concept the most.

No. 1 Location, Location, Location! Location-based marketing (LBM) is one of the top trends in the digital marketing arena, as the year 2012 continues to unfold. Focusing on delivering content (instantly usable information) to the user should always remain a high priority, if you’re really serious about generating more leads as well as staying ahead of the competition. With the ever-increasing population of mobile device users, delivering content to consumers based on their location becomes even more important.

74ft. la odisea The Northern Sea of Cortes La Odisea is a 74-foot (54 ton) Sunseeker yacht. Sunseeker is to luxury yachts what Rolls Royce is to luxury cars. La Odisea is based in Los Cabos and La Paz in the Sea of Cortes. From these two ports La Odisea covers the southern part of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico. The mission of La Odisea is to provide our guests with experiences beyond imagination. La Odisea has a world-class wine cellar with the very best wine, tequilas and liqueurs. We have a gourmet chef on board with a distinguished background in international fine cuisine. La Odisea takes the very concept of personalized service to the highest standards. La Odisea is decorated with original works of art by Fernando Botero and the interior design and fabrics of Ralph Lauren. Most charter boats are used exclusively for charter. La Odisea & Scorpio are different, both are private boats that are occasionally chartered, so the condition of both yachts is spectacular. La Odisea is owned by the Botero family (Yes, the Colombian Botero!). It is chartered occasionally and to special guests. This makes all the difference in the world.

Vacationing in Los Cabos, Sophistication and Luxury

The following is an excerpt from ESTILO MAGAZINE Published in January 2012 “Vacationing in Los Cabos, Sophistication and Luxury,” is the title of an article about Lifestyle Villas, published in ESTILO Mexico magazine, in their yearly issue covering destination Los Cabos. We particularly love the cover of this edition – it features Casa Bella, Lifestyle’s gorgeous 6,500 square foot custom home located in the exclusive community of Cabo Colorado near Palmilla. “Cabo San Lucas has been long known for offering the most exclusive and luxurious vacation experiences in all of Mexico. For years, the Land’s End paradise, ideally positioned between the

Sea of Cortez, the Pacific Ocean and the stark desert landscape, was a restricted playground for celebrities and the world elite. But today, thanks to a boast of services, improved infrastructure and warm hospitality, Los Cabos has become a worldclass destination welcoming visitors from around the globe. Luxury Villa Rentals While many first-class hotels line the beaches of Los Cabos, in recent years, travellers have enjoyed an increasingly popular alternative by renting vacation properties for

their stay. This option is especially attractive for families with children and groups travelling together, but is equally perfect for a romantic getaway for two.

billed as an extra charge and you’ll have to wait your turn among all the other guests expecting them.” … “Events of a Lifetime Luxury villa rentals are not limited to vacations. In fact, few places compare with Cabo as a magical wedding or party destination. Whether is is a honeymoon, special birthday, family reunion, corporate retreat or wedding that brings you to Cabo, one thing is for certain ñ you will remember it forever. And choosing a private villa for your venue will make it infinitely more exclusive, glamorous and fabulous.”

The advantages of vacation rentals are many. They provide more privacy and space for holiday-makers. Amenities can be endless such as (private) swimming pool, Jacuzzi, hot tub, tennis court, DVD library and so forth. And the highend options also come with specialized services such as private chef, concierge, transportation, etc. Sure, you can get many of these in a hotel, but they are usually 37

The secret

Though considered by some as intimidating, avid golfers will find them challenging and will appreciate the genius and skill that went into their designs, while less experienced players will be rewarded with a good day’s combat & magnificent views (including whale watching in the winter months!). The magnificent terrain is comparable to that found in Arizona and California desert golf courses. What sets Los Cabos apart is the presence of the Sea of Cortez, a sparkling waterwonderland of incredible hues reaching as far south as the eye can see & teaming with wildlife. Golfers

here have an added bonus eleven months of rain-free vacation play. So how do you get discounts on green fees? Since we strongly belive in providing outstanding service & offerings, we are passing on discounts to all of our guests who stay in a LIFESTYLE Villa. In some cases you'll get to enjoy upto $35 USD off per green fee. See the table with pricing.
