Monica Diaz Rivera is pleased to announce that the Cabo Farmer’s Market at Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas will continue throughout the summer and year round as long as there are those interested in organic fruits and vegetables. Contrary to some reports, this added value to the community with seasonally grown food produced within a drivable distance at fair and reasonable prices will not cease operation as some other markets in the area have announced.
Individual vendors, mostly farmers who set up booths selling produce picked at the peak of flavor preserving the nutritional content, fruits, herbs, handmade cheeses, eggs and poultry from free-range fowl, as well as heirloom produce, are available every Wednesday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Other vendors include artisans with unique jewelry, tamales, perogies, fresh flowers and more.
The market helps farmers stay in business throughout the summer as well as to preserve the natural resources and maintain important social ties, linking neighbors in a mutually rewarding exchange. Stop by and enjoy a moment of time-honored tradition while selecting next week’s table fare. The Pedregal Market is a happening place at Mar Adentro Spa located at the base of the rear entrance to Pedregal across from the Camino del Colegio off the road to Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach in Cabo San Lucas.

This concert takes place on the East Cape, in Vinorama next to Punta Perfecta at the junction of the Palo Escopeta Road and the East Cape Coast Road.
This year the second-annual Cabo Marine Show aims to bring together more than 40 top local and foreign vendors from Los Cabos, La Paz and mainland Mexico. The event will showcase goods and services complementing the area’s high-end marine and luxury markets—from top local area marinas and real estate developments, to luxury yacht and boat charters, commercial grade marine products and services, fashion and lifestyle, live entertainment and more.
The show will run from 1pm to 9m, Thursday, April 21 through Saturday, April 23, 2011, in a beautiful open-air setting. Admission is free to the general public. The location is on the Marina waterfront sections of the Puerto Paraiso Shopping Center, Luxury Avenue Boutique Mall and the Marina Fiesta Resort & Spa—commonly known as the Marina Golden Zone. It takes place during one of Mexico’s most important holiday weeks, Semana Santa.
Although Los Cabos is already one of the safest places to vacation and live, the government’s local agencies are overhauling its policies, prioritizing the security of its visitors and residents. From the director of tourism to the federal police, their mission is to protect and to serve: at the airport, beaches, marina, and on the roads and city streets.
Contrary to what is reported by many mainstream U.S. media outlets, crime is not an all-encompassing problem in México. It is isolated, just as crime in the U.S. is not rampant throughout the contiguous states. Not all of the United States is under a crime siege by socially disturbed individuals, and not all of México is involved in drug wars. In fact, the crime rate in the United States and other parts of the world is far greater than in México. Bad things happen everywhere.
There are many beautiful resorts in México that are suffering because international tourists have heard or read misleading reports that México as a whole is a violent country and canceled their travel plans. There’s no reason for prudent travelers to abandon their trips to places such as Los Cabos. México is a very large country, and Los Cabos is far removed from the violence affecting other parts of the nation. Jacobo Turquie Alcerraca, the newly appointed secretary of tourism for Southern Baja recently said, “The municipality of Los Cabos—1,000 miles from the U.S. border—boasts a unique geographic location at the tip of the long, narrow Baja California Peninsula. Separated from mainland México by the Sea of Cortés (christened the “World’s Aquarium” by Jacques Cousteau), the twin cities of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo and the surrounding countryside are an islandlike sanctuary, unaffected by any crime or violence occurring elsewhere in México.”
The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, confirms “millions of U.S. citizens safely visit México each year. This includes tens of thousands who cross the border every day for study, tourism or business and at least one million U.S. citizens who live in México. The Mexican government makes a considerable effort to protect U.S. citizens and other visitors to major tourist destinations. Resort areas and tourist destinations in México do not see the levels of drug-related violence and crime reported in the border region and in areas along major drug-trafficking route.”
The Mexican Naval Marine base, headed by Admiral Felipe Lozano Armenta, supports the local security program by providing protection and assistance in controlling maritime traffic and operating search-and-rescue missions in and about Los Cabos. Its inventory of top-notch equipment includes intercepting patrol and defender boats and helicopters with trained and qualified crews on duty 24-7. Patrols provide security by escorting cruise ships from 12 miles out up to anchor point, with small boats guarding their flanks during their stay in port. Naval personnel handle calls for help and monitor the dock on foot and aboard small boats in the marina. Foot patrols can be seen walking the beaches during high-tourism season. All personnel are trained to implement contingency plans and programs to assist civilians in times of emergency, such as hurricanes. Emergency contact information: (624) 105-1110, (624) 143-6699, ext. 124 or 125, Canal 16 VHF banda marina; frecuency 2182 kHz (24 hours, 365 days of the year).
Local police commander Daniel Rodriguez has spoken of revamping the training program for officers, restructuring the process so that the Los Cabos police are even better prepared for any incident.
Juan A. Carbajal Figueroa, commandant of the Cabo San Lucas Fire Department, is backed by 60 highly qualified individuals who are prepared for different types of emergencies known to happen in a beach area. Their priority is safeguarding the lives and goods of both locals and visitors with modern equipment and vehicles.
Ask any foreign resident living in Los Cabos whether he is afraid to live here, and the answer is unequivocally the same: I feel safer here than anywhere else I have ever lived. As in any foreign country, one needs to be careful and wise. Follow rules and obey the laws. Ask yourself, “Would I do this in my own country?” Common-sense precautions such as visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas during daylight hours and avoiding areas where criminal activity might occur can help ensure that travel to México is safe and enjoyable. Just because you’re on vacation does not mean that you can drink to extreme, become disorderly, or walk late at night on darkened streets or alone on the beach. Don’t take chances you wouldn’t if you were back home.
Miroslava Bautista Sánchez, the municipal tourism director of Los Cabos, says, “México is a big and incredibly diverse country to visit and in which to live, so violence along the U.S. border does not have any effect on a vacation in, for example, Los Cabos. Thousands of flights, cruise lines, and private yachts choose Los Cabos as their travel destination, and hundreds of demanding business travelers from the U.S. and Canada find investment opportunities here. Why? Los Cabos is a symbol of a peaceful place to visit and to live. It has long been a favorite getaway for movie stars and famous personalities, many of whom have purchased residences here.”
Los Cabos can be an unforgettable vacation experience in a safe and secure environment! Come enjoy the beauty and all the incredible activities associated with this part of the world.
