With the high season right around the corner, Los Cabos authorities are now starting to beautify the region to impress the many tourists choosing this destination for their holidays.
The projects are several and extremely creative, but today we will focus on only three of these.
Here are 3 ways in which the Los Cabos government is beautifying its cities for the high season.
More art in the city
Since its construction in 2015, the bridge located in the northern area of Cabo San Lucas has never been given a touch of color.
But things are about to change as the Los Cabos government has decided to collaborate with local artists to beautify its columns.
The project will be completed by December 16th and is being carried out in collaboration with the Environmental Group Green Cats.
Talking about this innovative project, Ana María Sánchez, the President of the organization, declared: “Now we return to recovering abandoned spaces and trying to give a new image to the port of Cabo San Lucas.”
Several artists have been involved in this initiative. In particular, a local artist named Alan commented: “The bridge is called the ‘bridge of the alebrijes (…)’ [Now] it has been given a touch, in some cases, of magic to represent (…) a part of the popular Mexican imagery.”
Alebrije is a Spanish word indicating brightly colored sculptures made of paper and representing fantastical creatures. They first originated in Mexico City and have then spread all over the country.
With this project, the Los Cabos government is not only trying to bring a touch of color and art to its city for the joy of its visitors but also paying tribute to Mexican culture and unique folklore.
New green areas
The Los Cabos government is well aware of the importance of creating green spaces where both locals and tourists alike can relax and breathe in some fresh air.
This is why, thanks to the Municipal Thematic Parks With A Human Sense program, it is now working on the rehabilitation of over 165 public parks located in different areas of the municipality.
The project aims at beautifying local parks, gardens, and sports areas, and up till now, 4,075 services have already been carried out.
A total of 61 parks have benefitted from this program in Cabo San Lucas, 80 in San José del Cabo, and an extra 25 in the northern area of the municipality.
The program will ensure all areas will have public and private services, will be cleaned of trash, and will get a new architectural design to showcase their unique identity.
Lastly, the Los Cabos government is now addressing what turned out to be tourists’ main concern in the municipality: mobility.
People who already visited Los Cabos know how traffic can cause huge problems in the area, including massive delays for travelers heading to the airport to catch a last-minute flight.
This is due to a variety of reasons among which is the poor conditions of the roads play a big role.
In particular, the Transpeninsular Highway needs plenty of repairs. This road connects the two main cities in the municipality, San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas to the local airport, and is therefore often used by tourists.
Unfortunately, the recent hurricane Norma has caused several damages.
The General Director of the Secretariat of Infrastructure, Communications, and Transportation in Baja California Sur, Marco Antonio Gutiérrez de la Rosa, declared that constant works are now being carried out.
In a recent interview, he stated that a project involving the resurfacing of twelve kilometers of the Transpeninsular Highway is also being planned.
Earth removal is another main concern after the many landslides caused by Hurricane Norma.
Talking about the issue, Gutiérrez de la Rosa declared: “As soon as the weather conditions permit, we will begin to remove the silt that was on the road.”
