The Los Cabos area is made up of two main towns, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and both towns are connected with a 20-mile stretch of beaches along the Sea of Cortez, named the Tourist Corridor. Most of the beaches are located on the Sea of Cortez which has a variety of beaches to choose from. Some beaches offer scenic beautiful rock formations with pounding waves crashing on the shore, while other beaches are stunning long stretches of sand for soaking in the sun, strolling, or horseback riding. When you book your Cabo vacation rental, stay informed with more details on swimmable beaches in, “Cabo Water Activities: To Swim or Not to Swim”
Public Beaches Verses Resort Beaches
Long empty stretches of sand are common along the beach. All the beaches are basically open to the public but be aware that resorts are permitted to claim the beach above the high tide line and area is sometimes blocked off. Otherwise, you’re free to stroll, explore, and settle on most any beach.

LET’S ALL CELEBRATE CHILDREN!
El Dia de Los Niños , a tradition that began in Mexico in 1925, is celebrated on April 30 . The idea was born from the first “World Conference for the Well-being of Children” that was held in Geneva, Switzerland in August 1925. At that time several countries selected days to celebrate children. Dia Del Niño, or Day of the Child, is an annual celebration throughout Mexico. This day recognizes children, their importance to society and their well-being.
This celebration of children was started in the US on April 30, 1997 and promoted by Pat Mora a literary advocate and award winning author who thought people in the US should join many Latin American countries in this celebration. Upon learning of this Mexican tradition Pat began developing the coupling of this day with Dia de Los Libros. Literacy goes hand in hand with the well-being of children. Her idea was to equate El Dia de los Ninos to El Dia de los Libros and to encourage the love for reading and learning. A time for parents to read together with their children, visit libraries and bookstores and to create a special library for children to enjoy at home. She presented her idea to the University of Arizona Latino faculty and staff. They contacted a local chapter for the National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and Spanish-Speaking. In addition a group in Santa Fe New Mexio, a national Latina advocacy organization, endorsed the idea. From the grass roots beginning the idea grew for support in linking language and literature for Dia del Niño and became official in the US in 1997.

We always enjoy reading the Gringo Gazette, one of Cabo’s local English newspapers. The owner/editor Carrie Duncan is always creative as are the other contributing writers. Next time you are in Cabo pick up a copy or go online. Here’s the link: http://www.gringogazette.tv/
In a recent issue, March 28, I found the following article and thought it would be fun to share.
Who Reads What?
And is anybody reading the Gringo Gazette?
1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the U.S.
2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the U.S.
3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the U.S. and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the U.S. but don’t really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.
5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the U.S., if they could find the time–and if they didn’t have to leave Southern California to do it.
6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a poor job of it.
7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren’t too sure who’s running the U.S. and don’t really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.
8. The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who is running the U.S. as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.
9. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores.
10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren’t sure if there is a United States or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped, minority, feminist, atheist dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens form any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that they are not Republicans.
11. The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.
12. The Gringo Gazette is read by people in Mexico who have recently caught a fish and need something to wrap it in.
