Hurricane Odile Update: 9/28

East Cape Emerges on Top

Guests are returning to East Cape as stories of Hurricane Odile began to fade and news of fishing leaped to the forefront with schools of dorado capturing the headlines. East Cape hotels and resorts are beginning to fill rooms with guests finding alternative ways to arrive at their favorite fishing destinations.

Rancho Leonero reported:

"Our first group of 25 fishermen arrived on Thursday and are headed out on 12 of our boats this morning ... to top it off, we have another 25 scheduled to arrive early next week," John Ireland proudly announced Friday morning.

"Where there’s a will there is a way," Don Melucci acknowledged at breakfast while gazing out on the mirror-like Sea of Cortez. “We flew out of Tijuana to La Paz on Volaris Airlines without a problem. Then we took a shuttle straight to Rancho Leonero from the La Paz Airport. It was our first time on that part of the road and the only evidence of Odile was the green foothills, a result of the rain."

"We are as ready as the hotel is and we can't wait to catch some of those dorado that everyone says are biting," he concluded.

According to knowledgeable sources, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto advised all airline carriers they “must be prepared to fly into Los Cabos by October 8.”In the interim, for up-to-date information on alternative flights, check with your travel agent or contact our office.
