Yep, it’s true. Todos Santos Baja Mexico is #7 on Trip Advisor’s Top 10 Emerging Destinations WorldWide list. Check it out!
September 16, 2010, marked 200 years since Mexico began the struggle that culminated in independence from Spanish rule. All over the country, celebrations commemorate this event, the same way July 4 is celebrated in the United States.
While the show in Todos Santos was fun and beyond the normal festivities, the story in Mexico City is worth viewing so check out the amazing photos from the night of the Grito in D.F.
Not sure how I could forget La Esquina in the restaurant closings listed yesterday, but I did. La Esquina normally closes for the entire month of September and this year is no exception. They will open again in October.
First, Tropical Storm Georgette veered towards the Sea of Cortes and made landfall at Cabo San Lucas so she never officially reached Todos Santos. We did manage a good 1.5 days of rain, slow steady rain, that seriously soaked the ground. We also had some gusty 35 mph winds for a short time. As far as I know, all roads are passable although the highway construction (to Cabo) by-passes have to be a muddy mess by now.
I have been meaning to mention the local Todos Santos restaurant situation. Many have closed for vacation. El Zaguan and Tre Galline are closed until early October. Posada La Poza (El Gusto!) is closed until October 12 while Michael’s at the Gallery is closed until November. Suki’s is scheduled to reopen near the end of November. Cafe Santa Fe will reopen at the beginning of November. Pancho Banano finally got with the program and closed, relocating to Cabo where his style of pushy commercialism belongs. La Copa Bar is closed until November also. Miguel’s has been closed the last two weeks, due to reopen any day now. Zen Garden is closed until sometime in October. Buena Vida is only open on Tuesday and Thursday evenings offering 2 for 1 beer and pizza until some time in October.
So now I know why it was raining so much on my return from Cabo yesterday. Tropical Storm Georgette has formed south of Cabo San Lucas and looks to parallel the Baja coast until she makes landfall near Todos Santos, likely late tonight. Luckily she isn’t very strong, but she will bring rain. It’s been raining off and on all morning and I have reports of heavier rain in Cabo and points south.
