News and Events, Questions and Answers

Secretary Of Tourism Reaches Out To English Speakers. - The Secretary of Tourism in Baja California Sur has started their English Facebook page with everything that one needs to know about this beautiful state. The page has all kinds of helpful and great information on upcoming events, different attractions around the state and much more. Don’t hesitate, and take a look. Let’s help support our state by liking their Facebook page. You can also follow them on Twitter. Thank you so much. Secretary of Tourism, La Paz BCS - Olivia Brower, 612-117-8349

Presentation By U.S. Consulate General - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Last week the Rotary Club of Los Barriles Cabo Este hosted the U.S. Consulate General's office. Sarah Smith the Deputy Chief of American Citizens U.S. Consulate General office Tijuana addressed how her office can help American Citizens. If you missed this presentation you can see a video replay of it on our website: www.losbarrilesrotaryclub.org.

Flying From La Paz to Sacramento (or to Just About Anywhere in the US) - Volaris has recently added some new routes. If you can pick your dates based on cost, take a $163 US 1-stop flight on Volaris from La Paz to Las Vegas thru Guadalajara (www.volaris.com.mx/en/), then take a $69 US nonstop flight on Southwest from Las Vegas to Sacramento (www.southwest.com). Total cost: about $232 US. Round trip tickets are at similar low prices. For many connections, this is better and cheaper than taking Volaris to Tijuana, then crossing the border and taking a taxi to the San Diego airport, because you don't have to leave the airports or cross the border on foot.

Footnote: Watch out for Volaris' "Gotcha!" on their cheapest tickets. You can only check a single 15Kg bag (33 Lbs). Any more than that and you'll pay $10 US for each Kg over the limit. This cost me $80 US on my last trip, more than I would have paid had I purchased the more expensive ticket that allowed 25 Kg (55 Lbs). Volaris and Southwest have recently begun partnering, so the route between La Paz to Sacramento, and other Western cities, may get even easier in the near future. - Alan, alan [- at -] BajaSatellite.com, Todos Santos

Need Ride To San Jose Airport This Friday! - Anyone willing to give me a ride to the airport this friday?? I am traveling with a small puppy. She is in good health, and I have made arrangements with the airline for her to travel in the cabin, but the bus driver won´t let me carry her on board, and I only have a crate for the cabin. I will pay a reasonable price, please let me know ASAP! Thanks! - April Randol, pholistoma [- at -] gmail.com, 001 707 696 9436

Verizon Phone Found - Found a silver fold-over LG/Verizon phone in my yard. Someone may have thrown it there. It may not work or may simply be run down. - Pamela Vantress, pavantress [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-145-0254, Todos Santos

Did You Lose An Earring? - An earring was found on the floor of the Todos Santos theater on Sunday during the film festival. If you think it might be yours, please contact me at lynnec [- at -] pobox.com.lynnec [- at -] pobox.com

VW Shocks Wanted - Wanted: 2 VW bug rear shocks. Must be original. Will trade Kyb gas shocks or money. Thank You - Carlos Carlos, carlomaria [- at -] sbcglobal.net, 145-0028

New Prodigy Modems - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Prodigy (our internet service provider in Mexico) has switched to a new modem provider. The modem is the device that connects your telephone dsl signal to your computers. They no longer carry the 2Wire Products. The most common failure of the 2Wire Modem is the power supply, that little back thing that plugs into the wall. I have my power supply plugged into a Battery Backup System (UPS). The most common cause of the power supply failure is the "brown out". The battery backups protect against those failures. The new Prodigy replacement modems have a very high rate of failure with all the components. Personally, I keep two spare 2Wire Modems on hand and two power supplies. Here is a link to purchase a power supply from Amazon: (http://www.amazon.com/2Wire-Supply-Models-1701HG-2700HG/dp/B0014HH8GW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330443269&sr=8-2) thecomputerguy, thecomputerguy [- at -] usa.com.

La Santeña And Hotel Casa Tota - ♪ If you like Piña Coladas... ♪ Sorry - just heard that song. But we do have piña coladas. And lots of other great drinks, Baja wines, smoothies, salads, fresh fish, creative dishes, super burros, friendly staff, great outdoor seating with frequent cowboy sightings... *sigh*

We start serving breakfast at 7AM and serve dinner until 10PM. Drinks till 11PM. And if you drink too much, or just need a fix of telenovela television, or you've been camping for weeks and a hot shower and a jacuzzi and fluffy towels you don't have to wash sounds like heaven- you can roll right into one of our stylish and reasonable rooms.

So that's a bunch of good reasons to come visit us. I also think our staff is adorable and funny, but I am biased. Hope to see you here at Hotel Casa Tota and La Santeña in historic downtown Todos Santos!

Flying Fido And Morris Into Mexico, Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Useful Article from Baja Insider 12/12/11: (1) You will need a Original Health Certificate completed by a Vet,. The documentation should verify that the dog has received all its shots. Do Not Try To Use A Photocopy. Rabies Shot not over 1 year old. (yes in the states it is 3 years but not Mexico Upon arriving at the airport, after clearing customs you will need to import the dog. This is pretty painless. They take your health certificate back to the office photocopy it and bring you the import papers with an official stamp. Hope that helps. Jim Hall

(2) Mexico Customs, currency & airport tax regulations details: www.iatatravelcentre.com/MX-Mexico-customs-currency-airport-tax-regulations-details.htm. All pets require a veterinary health certificate, issued not more than 5 days before arrival. For dogs and cats, health certificate must include: - (for pets older than 3 months) rabies vaccination history issued within 12 months before arrival [NOTE: Rule has changed since 2009. Now every 3 years - Editor]. If rabies vaccination history is not included, rabies vaccination certificate must be attached. - attestation that the pet is free from ECTO and ENDO parasites (or a deworming certificate). Further information can be found at: www.senasica.gob.mx ("Phytozoosanitary Inspection" and "When travelling, bring your pet"). And for a much more detailed description of the process: www.senasica.gob.mx/?Idioma=2&id=623 - Sheryl, Owner of La Paz Gringos

Mexico recently changed the rabies policy. We flew into SJD In October and were asked to present health certificates for our dog and cat. They registered the animals and presented me with papers welcoming them into Mexico. The person who helped us also told me that the policy for rabies had changed in Mexico from a shot each year had changed to a shot every three years, just like in the USA.
