Mexican Federal Maritime-Terrestrial Zone employees have recently been taking advantage of a slower period on Los Cabos beaches to complete a deep clean in preparation for the upcoming peak spring holiday travel season.
Spring Deep Clean
Federal Maritime-Terrestrial Zone Coordinator Manuel Cortés Ávila is leveraging a recent decrease in Los Cabos beachgoers to give local beaches a good spring cleaning.
According to reports, waste collection on the beaches around Los Cabos is down more than 40 percent due to a lower number of tourists using the beaches.
Instead, workers were fanning out on the beaches with titled shovels on the end of wooden poles, digging into the sand to remove microparticles of trash, cigarettes, metal, and glass.
The focus of their spring deep clean initially was Hacienda, Corsario and Ocho Cascadas beaches.
Cooler Winter Weather
The normal January daily highs in Los Cabos should be between 75 and 80 degrees. However, recently, the mercury has been struggling to reach that level.
In fact, recent temperature predictions on the Weather Channel to start February in Los Cabos have daily highs five to ten degrees below normal.
While most of the tourists in the United States will happily take 70-to-75-degree highs, many local merchants and beach officials attribute the slower-than-normal tourist count right now to the cooler weather.
Just Weeks Until the Peak Spring Travel Season
As the month of January comes to a close, the peak spring travel season in Los Cabos will be starting in as little as about four to six weeks.
Preparations are underway to make sure the sun, sand, and surf are all ready for the influx of travelers. That includes the deep cleaning of the local beaches.
Resorts and hotel operators, along with local merchants and tourism officials, are optimistic for a busy upcoming spring travel season and are working together closely to make sure the town is ready to deliver an excellent customer experience to travelers.
Blue Flag Recertification Coming Soon
The more detailed work allowed employees to focus on ensuring that the Los Cabos beaches are not only ready for spring travel season but also the important recertification of Blue Flag status for the beaches.
Only about 5,000 beaches worldwide in 51 countries are certified as Blue Flag beaches.
To be honored with the highly regarded beach quality certification, a beach must meet very strict environmental, educational, safety and accessibility criteria. Only the top beaches reach this level of certification and Los Cabos has several beaches meeting this high standard.
Beaches must be recertified on a regular basis, and maintaining the beaches to the standard not only requires quite a bit of work in Los Cabos, but it is also an important priority for local officials.
“Right now, we are focusing on good management of the beach because of the renewals of the Blue Flag certifications,” said Cortés Ávila.
Many tourists will seek to spend their spring vacation getaway on a Blue Flag beach, making the designation a very important factor in worldwide tourism.
Ready For Tourists
Los Cabos is making sure it is ready for travelers to come and enjoy a spring vacation getaway to the beach resort destination.
Officials are ensuring that the beaches are clean, the resorts are staffed, and everything is ready to make a good impression with the influx of visitors that mean so much to the community.
Travelers seeking to spend their spring vacation getaway in Los Cabos should be booking their airfares now, as rates are a little low for this time of year.
