I must confess that the fall edition has been one of the most challenging due to the fact the second wave of pandemic limited the expeditions we had planned. Even so, following all safety protocols, we managed to go to El Sargento and La Ventana in La Paz and Isla Cerralvo. There we met the grandson of Salome Leon Lucero who happily showed us the1972 interview of his grandfather in National Geographic, as well as additional documents that support the story that Salome was the person who discovered one of the most famous pearls from this peninsula.
We also visited San Antonio, a magical mining town worthy of consideration for the old buildings and traditional flagstone streets. We were entertained by the history of the town while sitting in the plaza. At the end of the interview with Adolfo de la Peña, we walked part of the legendary Camino Real or Ruta de Oro y Plata between San Antonio and El Triunfo.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sonia Falcone who provided us with part of her new collection from a photo shoot in Isla Cerralvo with national record-holding freediver, Estrella Navarro. The expedition was orchestrated by Oscar Ortiz from Elements by Baja who is our production partner.
We’d like to remind you that this fall is the date for the Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournament that has been advertising the awesomeness of Los Cabos for more than 40 years. More than 100 boats gather to battle for the prize of one of the most important fishing tournaments in the world.
That’s not all. The Los Cabos International Film Festival will be celebrating 10 years of dedicated involvement in the glamorous film industry. This edition is a recount of the most interesting anecdotes.
It’s autumn. Enjoy the colors of Baja California Sur and the magic of its people!
