G20 Summit in Mexico 2012

View from my Suite at Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe in Mexico

I just had the pleasure to be in Mexico recently (May 16, 2012 – May 20, 2012), I stayed at the Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe and Grand Melia Resort in Los Cabos and I must tell you that I enjoyed my visit to both Mexico and Los Cabos.

I was there to attend ExecConnect produced by TravelAge West and it gave me the opportunity to experience Los Cabos in a wonderful settings.

Driving from the airport to my hotel gave me the chance to really see the landscape of the beautiful country and just imagine being able to stay there more than the short time I was be there.

I have to share my joy that the G20 is taking place in Mexico because it will show that Mexico is a place that you can vacation as a family, a group of friends, even having your Destination Wedding there.

Just think about this …the head of All the leading countries in the world will be there working on making things better for their citizens who have put them in office.

Now in case you are wondering what the G-20 Summit is…here is what I was able to learn from Wikipedia…

The G-20 Summit was created as a response both to the financial crisis of 2007–2010 and to a growing recognition that key emerging countries were not adequately included in the core of global economic discussion and governance. The G-20 Summits of heads of state or government were held in addition to the G-20 Meetings of Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors who continued to meet to prepare the leaders’ summit and implement their decisions. After the debut summit in Washington, D.C. during 2008, G-20 leaders met twice a year in London and Pittsburgh in 2009, Toronto and Seoul in 2010.[10][11]

Since 2011, when France chaired and hosted the G-20, the summits have been held only once a year.[12] Mexico will chair and host the leaders’ summit in 2012.[13]

The 10 Must Do’s in Cabo

Los Cabos truly has something for each type of visitor. From beaches to activities, shopping to relaxation, here’s a checklist of “musts” so you can enjoy all that Los Cabos has to offer.

1. FIND YOUR FAVORITE BEACH.

Whether you’re seeking a secluded spot for a romantic escapade or a snorkeling piece of shoreline that’s also great for the kids, Los Cabos and its surroundings offer a multitude of beautiful beaches. Those low-key roads veering off onto the sea often hide a bonanza of prime waterfront.

2. NURTURE YOUR INNER ARTIST.

You’d be wise to take your camera, pencil or even pastels every time you leave your hotel room, as Los Cabos’ natural beauty and man-made élan provide ample options for a lifetime of memories.Whether it’s the orange traces in the sky as the sun goes down or fishermen coming back from a day at sea, Baja’s beauty is meant to be captured in some way or another.

3. VACATION LIKE A CELEBRITY.

Indulge in a day’s worth of luxurious spa pampering, whip out your sunglasses and stroll about like the Hollywood stars. Don’t be too surprised if you spot a famous singer or actor (or even some paparazzi) “hiding out” beside you, enjoying the warm days and lively nights of Los Cabos.

Even decades after the likes of John Wayne headed here for a little R and R, the glitterati still love this spot of sassy sophistication.

4. BECOME ONE WITH NATURE.

From December to March, Baja California Sur welcomes a flurry of whales seeking warm waters in which to give birth. Visitors may arrange For a tour that takes them just inches away from these gentle mammals, or even spot them from beaches or a strategically built bar overlooking the ocean. You may also spot seals sunning themselves on the rocks around El Arco and loudly complaining about the presence of kayakers nearby.

5. GO ON A ROAD TRIP.

Don’t neglect Los Cabos’ earthly treasures just because there’s so much to discover at sea. A drive around Baja is an adventure in itself. Having your own wheels will give you access to miles of regal cacti, a forgotten fish taco stand with ice-cold beer and other unexpected surprises.

6. HEAD EAST.

To the East Cape, that is. This relatively undeveloped area is a favorite spot for surfers looking to get away from the crowds and those who love to fish. With more rustic surroundings and camping sites than its more sophisticated neighbor, the East Cape is a dream come true for nature types, including divers who want to reach the Cabo Pulmo natural reef system.

7. GO FISH.

Even if you don’t consider yourself the fishing type, you must try your luck here. Many hotels and outfitters offer fishing packages and assorted options for fun days at sea. If you’d rather run with the big boys, sign up for one of several championship tournaments.

8. TEE OFF.

As one of the world’s most famous golf destinations, Los Cabos glitters with amazing greens.Championship courses have been carved out of an arid landscape that often looks out into the blue beyond. Everyone from Tom Fazio to Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Greg Norman has helped design and build what are now some of the area’s most appealing attractions.

9. COME HUNGRY.

Leave your diet behind and get ready to savor some of the best seafood and Mexican delicacies in the entire peninsula. From toe-tingling Pacific tuna to shrimp tacos with a spicy kick, Los Cabos’ range of culinary options offers something for everyone.
