Los Cabos cleanup efforts have progressed relatively quickly in the aftermath of Hurricane Odile, according to the Los Cabos Hotel Association, with structural damage being mostly minimal or nonexistent. Electricity, telephone, Internet and potable water supplies have been fully restored in Los Cabos, the association noted. Los Cabos International Airport opened for a small number of flights at the end of last week, and as of the middle of this week was handling a number of domestic and international flights, among them some routes from United, Alaska, Delta and Southwest airlines. Approximately 30 flights should be in operation by Oct. 15, with flights gradually increasing until schedules return to normal in early December. 

Many hotels are taking the opportunity to renovate now and upgrade their facilities. As of yesterday, 18 Los Cabos hotels were  open, according to the hotel association: Bahía Hotel and Beach Club, Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa, Casa Dorada at Medano Beach, Hotel California in Todos Santos, Hotel Suites Las Palmas, Monte Cristo Estates by Pueblo Bonito, Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos Resort, Pueblo Bonito Pacífica Holistic Retreat & Spa, Pueblo Bonito Rosé Resort & Spa, Quinta del Sol, Villa del Arco Beach Resort & Spa, Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa, Villa La Estancia Beach Resort & Spa and Wyndham Cabo San Lucas.
