- From the 15th until the 20th of June during the evening, there will be various events: concerts, movie screenings, ballet & exhibits at the cultural pavilion located in down town Cabo. All functions are open to the public & free
- The Cabo San Lucas Bay & port will remain open as usual until further notice, but closures are possible.

- Be prepared to wait in traffic, so leave at least 30-45 min before your meetings or appointments, there will possibly be various check points along the highway
- If you are traveling to the airport from the 12th on, consider you are now going to take the old route which already adds another 25-30 min, so consider a longer travel time & expect the unexpected
