Resort Progress in the Wake of Hurricane Odile

published on October 3, 2014 by

On the night of September 15th, Hurricane Odile slammed the Baja California peninsula, wreaking havoc on the entire southern half of the peninsula. Cabo San Lucas – a traditional vacation hotspot – was caught right in the trajectory of the storm. While the hurricane has long passed and the dust has settled, Cabo is still caught in a frenzy to pick up the pieces and get business running as usual. Progress has been remarkable, but still some resorts are undergoing maintenance. If a vacation in Cabo is on your calendar, be sure to get the scoop on how your resort is faring.

Resorts sustaining significant damage

The following resorts are reported to have suffered significant damage and will require extensive repair before reopening their doors to guests.

Resorts sustaining moderate damage

The following resorts are reported to have suffered moderate damage. A fair amount of repair is still needed, and reopening dates are still awhile off. 

Resorts sustaining minor damage

The following resorts are reported to have suffered minor damage. Resorts are mostly intact, but cosmetic or small-scale repairs are needed. Most plan to open within the month.
Of course, some resorts have managed to escape the worst of the storm and are already up and running; among them, Villa del Arco Beach Resort & Spa, Villa del Palmar Cabo San Lucas and WorldMark Coral Baja. Additionally, most major airlines have dubbed the area safe to fly to and will also be accepting bookings on October 8th.

RedWeek is continuing to update our resort pages as we obtain new information, but if you don’t see your resort listed, we highly encourage you to contact the resort directly. Many are more than willing to let you know the current status, as well as eager to help make your vacation enjoyable.
