In the aftermath of the category 4 Hurricane Odile that directly hit the resort town of Cabo San Lucas, JW Maxx Solutions' Cabo office highlights how the city has pulled together to start rebuilding and is on track for another prosperous high season of travel.

On September 14, the most intense tropical storm to ever hit the Los Cabos area of Mexico moved its way up the Baja Peninsula bringing with it intense wind, rain, and damage. There was widespread damage throughout the area, and there are residents of the town that are in dire need of assistance.

While it is true that some areas suffered worse than others, there is a lot to be thankful for, especially when it comes to the resorts that are on the marina and those that face the ocean. However, the largely residential areas of town were hit harder than anywhere else due to the lack of infrastructure that the tourism corridor has created. The community and the resorts themselves are coming together to raise money and donate food, clothing, water and shelter to those in need in the community.

“From the most recent pictures that have been sent to us from the area, we can see that Marina Boulevard is already cleared. Buildings are in the process of being repaired and locals are even frequenting some of their favorite bars and restaurants as power lines have already been restored in much of the city,” says Walter Halicki, CEO of JW Maxx Solutions. “It is truly remarkable how quickly the Los Cabos community was able to pull together, but there is still a lot of work to be done in order to rebuild.”

Cabo San Lucas is a town that thrives on its tourism industry. As one of the most sought-after destinations in Mexico, millions of travelers flock to its sun-kissed beaches and warm waters to experience a relaxing environment unlike any other. Because of its strong tourism-driven economy, the city of Cabo San Lucas is doing everything in its power to get its resorts up and running once again. In fact, there are signs indicating that this year’s high season will be on-point with any other year’s in terms of how many people will be coming to vacation in Cabo.

It should also be noted that throughout the storm, hotel and resort employees did a magnificent job of ensuring that all guests were brought to safety and that every emergency protocol was followed. Guests who were vacationing in Cabo when Odile hit are now back home and safe with their families.

Many resorts suffered superficial damage that is already in the process of being repaired. Most of the resorts in the area have already said that they will be welcoming visitors back through their doors by the end of October/beginning of November.

Vacation ownership investors and lovers of Cabo should rest assured that their investments and their favorite vacation spot are rapidly on the mend. All hands are on deck putting in extra hours each day to return Cabo back to its glorious state as a premier vacation destination. Travelers should be looking forward to spending the end of their year in the paradise that is Cabo San Lucas.

For those who were planning on traveling to Cabo San Lucas in the next four weeks, it is encouraged that they contact their resorts and airlines as soon as possible, as most are rebooking vacations for a later date at no additional charge. On behalf of all of JW Maxx Solutions’ clients in the Los Cabos area, those in the Cabo San Lucas area are wished a speedy recovery from the damage of the storm. More than a dozen resorts that this exclusive PR firm represents share that they appreciate all of the support and well-wishes that have come their way from concerned members and guests. The resorts want travelers to know that staff members are safe, and Cabo is almost back to normal and will be ready to welcome vacationers back in the high season.
