See the ever-growing tourism in in Los Cabos with Nick Fong and Rodrigo Esponda

Welcome to today’s episode of The Nick Fong Podcast.  As the founder and broker of Ronival Real Estate and Property Management, Nick Fong is joined by Rodrigo Esponda.  What a treat to get the inside information from the source.  To explain, Rodrigo is the director of the Los Cabos Tourism Board.  That means, he understands tourism in Los Cabos as an informed insider. In this meeting of the minds, Nick and Rodrigo talk about what has occurred in the last few months.  And, they discuss how tourism has been recovering after COVID-19.  When you see what is revealed below, the figures will truly surprise you.  Now, read on to see how Los Cabos is recovering for yourself.

Rodrigo’s last conversation with Nick Fong

When they previously met, Rodrigo told Nick that the Los Cabos International Airport and most of the resorts will provide COVID-19 viral testing, right on site.  Also, he revealed that many of the Real Estate Agents and Property Managers in Cabo will be providing that service as well. They revealed that the approximate cost of COVID-19 viral testing is about $35 USD, which is about 700 Mexican Pesos.  Also, as this testing kicks into high gear after January 26, 2021, the cost is predicted to go down as the testing ramps up.  Interestingly, Rodrigo tells Nick that many hotels in Los Cabos provide the testing as part of their rate. In that last interview, Nick Fong states that many of his clients happen to be doctors.  As such, he asks Rodrigo to see if those doctors can perform their own COVID-19 viral test.  Rodrigo responds with a yes.  He says that  they can.  But of course, they have to be qualified to perform the test and document it properly.

What’s the latest about Cabo’s recovery from COVID-19

Watch the video as Rodrigo refers to the COVID-19 recovery as a “home run.”  As he states, Cabo has implemented testing for COVID within every property in Cabo.  That means, you can get tested right at your hotel.  That’s very convenient!  Also, Rodrigo mentions that you won’t find that level of service offered at any other destination – only at some places. Cabo has been the ability to eat outside.  They have been able to eat out on the patio of restaurants in the open air.  Of course, the air inside is just fine, but there’s nothing quite like the fresh Cabo ocean air outside.  Also, there are all of the other health accommodations provided by Cabo restaurants and the waiters, which make you feel very safe too. Regarding tourism, Rodrigo says that Los Cabos has had the most successful summer EVER.  The numbers compared to 2019 – before the pandemic, were like this:  May was up 10%, June was up 20%, July was up 25%, and August was up 20%.  What a recovery!  And that’s amazing since 2019 was a record year. It has been reported by visitors that after landing at the Los Cabos International Airport, they felt extra safe everywhere they go.  As an example, during your shuttle ride into town, drivers wear a face mask and they offer you hand sanitizer before entering.  Then, visitors mention that their accommodations are always very clean.  Additionally, they stated that all of the restaurants they’ve visited were very clean and safe – they take everyone’s temperature as they enter the establishment along with providing hand sanitizer.Listen to the new episode here:Apple
