BajaInsider Update December 12, 2018


Greetings BajaInsider Subscribers:

November blew right past and here we are already moving into the holiday season. The city crews have been stringing the lights and setting up the display at the Secretary of Education's office here in La Paz and it looks more spectacular than ever. We'll get some pictures up for you as soon as they are done.

Today is Dia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, which celebrates the event which bonded the Catholic Church to the Latin American population and is particularly celebrated this week in Mexico City but is a major holiday across the Latin American community.Today is Dia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, which celebrates the event which bonded the Catholic Church to the Latin American population and is particularly celebrated this week in Mexico City but is widely celebrated throughout the Latin American community.

In the mean time, whale watching season is almost upon us and our friends at EcoBaja Sur Tours invite you to make reservations for their Glamour Camping facility and up close whale watching tour in San Ignacio, beginning January 20.

Spring time makes a great time for a cruise aboard a small ship in the Sea of Cortez and we invite you to check out the information from our sponsor AdvertureSmith Explorations.

The holidays are a busy time to drive the peninsula, please remember that minimum liability auto insurance is required to drive on Mexican Federal Highways. Click here for an online application now.

Mexico has a new president sworn in December 1, who won by a landslide victory back in July. With a majority mandate the country appears more unitied than ever in its choice of direction for the next 6 years. I take a look at the 100 points that AMLO outlined in his inauguration address.

I've been here in Baja a long time and many things have changed. In what started to be a single article Part One looks at a few of the things that have changed dramatically in Baja California Sur over the past two decades.

Without further ado, here are the top stories on the BajaInsider.com
