News and Events, Questions and Answers

G-20: Important Information - An informational meeting of the official organizers of the upcoming G-20 was held recently at Fiesta Americana. The most important notes from the meeting concern road and beach closures (no toll road for a week, beach access from Zippers South will be limited, and, in general, lots of slow going traffic). Additional highlights include:
  1. The toll road will be closed from June 14 – 19. This will be open only to those transporting delegations. Anyone who needs to go to the airport will have to use the old route through San Jose Del Cabo.
  2. The Convention center will be open for the G 20 summit.
  3. All beaches including access to beaches from the Holiday Inn (Known before as the Presidente Intercontinental Hotel, next to the estuary) all the way to Punta Ballena will be restricted from the 12th – 20th of June.
  4. Highest concentration of Security will be in Cabo del Sol & Punta Ballena.
  5. Anyone who hasn't submitted the names of staff by the 5th of June, of those who work inside of the developments or whom have any dealings with resorts where dignitaries are staying will NOT be able to access from the 12th until the 20th of June.
  6. You must carry official identification with you at all times when in Cabo from the 12th on.
  7. From the 15th until the 20th of June during the evening, there will be various events, concerts, movie screenings, ballet & exhibits at the cultural pavilion located in down town Cabo. All functions are open to the public & free.
  8. The Cabo San lucas bay & port will remain open as usual until further notice, possibly expect it to close on the 18th & 19th, but it is not official.
  9. All schools, hospitals & regular businesses will remain open, unless a decision is made by the actual institution.
  10. There will be no boat traffic allowed east of Misiones del Cabo towards the Estuary close to shore, but further out at sea it will be open for navigation.
  11. This means that the popular snorkeling spots like Santa Maria, Chileno Bay & surf spots like El Tule, Acapulquito, the Rock & Zippers will not be accessible from the 12th until the 20th.
  12. The Cabo San Lucas FBO (MMLS) is where all private jets will have to arrive who are not attending the G20.
  13. Be prepared to wait in traffic, so leave at least 30-45 min before your meetings or appointments, there will possibly be various check points along the highway.
  14. Don't forget to smile, this is an unprecedented event in our destination, which we are certain will be a catalyst to re active foreign investment on our shores, in the near future.
  15. We thank all the authorities for the hard work & for bringing this event to our destination & we will keep you abreast if anything changes.
  16. If you are here during this event & want to venture out, there are so many places to see along the pacific coast towards Cerritos, Pescadero & Todos Santos and towards the east you have Santiago, Miraflores, Los Barriles, Bay Of Dreams, La Ventana & La Paz.

There's A New Bank In Town - The Hogar del Nino food bank is now permanently located at the Galeria de Todos Santos. Drop off any food items or cleaning supplies. Fresh vegetables and meats would be great. And remember, the more you deposit, the richer you feel! The kids really need our help, seriously. - Michael, Pat And Erick Cope, mplcope [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0500, Todos Santos

Fideicomiso Scam? - I have had two contacts dated around the same time (March) stating I did not pay my Fideicomisos on my properties. I paid both in December but got an email in April from someone claiming to represent BancoInteracciones that my check hadn't cleared. Just got a letter at my Oregon address that my Banorte fidei wasnt paid, dated March but not signed by Jorge Pickett. Anyone else had this happen? I have my receipts. - Amy Conroy, amyhop [- at -] gorge.net

Internet IPv6 - Just a heads up, so you do not panic. On June 6, many servers/systems go to the internet protocol 6. If you have a problem, go to my site under "ask a geek" and I will have some information for you so you can try to fix. I am not sure how Telmex is going to handle this with their routers. IE did they build this in years ago like many did. I have an old 2wire router. It may be as simple as a few sites you cannot get on so you will need to give Telmex a few days/(years).

Basically, this is because of the exploding number of devices using the internet around the world. We are running out of addresses, so comes IPv6. Here is a site that can give you a heads up on compatibility and from my computer it shows I will not be able to go to IPv6 only sites: test-ipv6.iad.vr.org. I had 0/10 for IPv6 only sites. If you get different results, you can you email me directly or post it on my site under "ask a geek IPv6" and list which router you have. - Dean DeVolpi, dean [- at -] la-ventana.com, www.la-ventana.info, 888-338-6574, La Paz

Rare Transit Of Venus Across The Sun - Witness a rare transit of Venus as it passes in front of the disk of the sun the afternoon and evening of June 5. Transits of Venus across the disk of the Sun are among the rarest of planetary alignments. Only seven such events have occurred since the invention of the telescope (1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874, 1882 and 2004). If you miss the 2012 transit, you will have to wait more than a century for the next one. More Info: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transit_of_Venus
