Hugo Aviles Will Be Missed - Everyone at Baja Beans is so saddened to say goodbye to one of our own. Hugo Aviles was an integral part of this company and this community. He came to work with enthusiasm every day. He was always smiling and laughing at something.
He started out with us working in the garden at age 16 but he found his way into the kitchen and learned quickly. He became our head baker and was in charge of the kitchen after just a few months. He was so looking forward, this year to learning about coffee and becoming a barista. He was taking English classes to help him communicate with people in the front end. We are all so sad that we won't get to see that happen. He would have been awesome and he would have been well received and well loved by people who didn't already know him and love him.
Our hearts go out to his family ..... and all of Pescadero who are losing a shining star. Hugo, you will be sorely missed. - April Tidey, april [- at -] apriltidey.com

Nestled between the impressive Santa Cruz Mountains and turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez, panoramic views sweep across the white sand beaches, the desert oasis and Isla Cerralvo. Las Cruces will deepen your knowledge of old Baja charm, a family treasure and glamorous hideaway for distinguished names such as Frank Sinatra, John Wayne and President Eisenhower.
Surrender your worries to the safe and enchanting scene of Las Cruces. This five night retreat features morning and evening yoga classes, activities, exploration and plenty of relax time. Arrive and unwind while people trickle in from all corners of the world for this very special debut of the private Las Cruces Ranch. Beach bonfire parties on the opening and closing nights provide the opportunity to celebrate the gathering of intriguing people, and absorb your new surroundings.
Daily optional activities include exploration, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, and local culinary instruction. Kayaks, and bicycles are available for use, as well as dive gear, tennis courts, driving range, volley ball, croquet, shuffle board, billiards room, and the list continues.
