Update on Mexico Timeshare, After the Hurricanes

Henriette was an almost overlooked hurricane this past week, as the brutal Hurricane Felix, a strong category 5, grabbed headlines and left death and destruction across Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize and parts of Mexico.

Making landfall as a category one hurricane, Henriette hit Mexico’s tourist and timeshare resort destinations of Cabo San Lucas and Acapulco on Tuesday.

According to Eddie Dalmau of the Van Wormer Resorts, “Palmas De Cortez and Playa Del Sol sustained no damage”. He went on to say, in an article, which appeared in the Daily Breeze, that electricity and water were expected to be restored on Wednesday (September 5) and all roads from San Jose Del Cabo to the East Cape area were open, along with the San Jose Del Cabo airport that reopened on Wednesday morning.

As the storm made impact in the Baja area, the Mexican government declared a state of emergency in southern Baja California. Waves reached 15-feet and plumes of whitewater reportedly soared 30 feet into the air at the Cabo San Lucas marina. CNN reported that one restaurant owner said he had lost 40 percent of his beach before the storm even hit.

Two destinations of interest to timeshare owners have already released the following reports:

Villa del Palmar Los Cabos timeshares reports that at the time the hurricane hit, they had 65 percent occupancy and other than the effects of the rain, all resort amenities were available to guests as normal. Electrical service and telephone service were not interrupted because of the storm.

Club Royal Solaris Los Cabos timeshare reported that they are operating regularly and that their beach was not damaged by Henriette.
