The night of the unveiling of the 2018 awards has taken the winners of this contest to live a spectacular musical experience filled with magic. An unforgettable evening where the prizewinners lived extraordinary moments as the majesty of various Mexican artists dressed the evening with their art and talent. On October 26th at 6:30 pm, a special ceremony took place at the Ángela Peralta Theater in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, as the winners of the 5th edition of the “Los 100 Imperdibles de México” contest received their awards.
Hacienda del Mar Los Cabos winner in the HOTELS AND STAYS 2018 category. An extremely awaited night by the nominees, who made a difference and managed to set an example for millions of Mexicans and foreign tourists that seek to live only the best experiences through their senses. The site was beautifully decorated with flower arrangements created by the renowned florist, Cynthia Saloma who allowed the color and texture to shine on and off stage. The traditional “Mojigangas” were in charge of the welcoming act. These carnival-looking masks and costumes were created by the artist, Hermes Arroyo, born in San Miguel de Allende, famous for the art and color that arises from his giant dolls as they stand through the beautiful streets of downtown. The venue, named after the Mexican soprano, was the perfect stage to present the talent of Cesar Secundino, a world-renowned Mexican harpist that presented a series of traditional Mexican musical compositions, along with the National Jazz Orchestra.
This was the beginning of the granting of the awards that the nominees, now winners, received, thanks to the votes provided by the National Tourism Guide community, as well as the by “Los 100 Imperdibles de México” Contest.
Throughout the ceremony, lots of words of thanks where pronounced. The feeling of the winners as they received their awards was that of joy, pride and gratitude. The ceremony concluded with a special presentation by the National Jazz Orchestra, the talented harpist César Secundino and other special guests, such as Roberta Viera, whose voice delighted the guests with her stunning presentation of the song “La Llorona”.
The guests walked together through the streets of the city’s downtown towards “Casa de Europa”, a magnificent colonial-style patio that serves as an exhibition center in San Miguel de Allende, a place that promotes art and culture. Here, the winners and guests enjoyed the delicious canapés offered by Hacienda la Laborcilla de Querétaro, along with Mezcal from Casa Agasajo, and crafted beer from Allende. An “Imperdible” or “Must Do” is not only a recommendation, but also a remainder to preserve the very best of Mexico.
Donation Delivery to LCCF: One Dollar per Night Program by Hacienda del Mar
At Hacienda del Mar we´re aware of the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility, since nowadays it is essential to somehow PARTICIPATE with the community, as a way of giving back at least a small part of everything we receive.
This is the reason why we’ve kept a permanent effort to raise awareness among our guests through a campaign we first launched at Hacienda del Mar Los Cabos in 2015, where we invited all our guests to donate $1 dollar per night.
With this goal in mind, we have kept an open communication channel with our guests and our Hacienda del Mar members, through e-mails, Apps, Social Networks and websites, as well as through weekly activations that seek to promote a more personalized interaction with our guests in a way that we can achieve the following:
1. Raise awareness – There is a problem/situation that needs to be addressed
2. Call to action - HDM already makes a monthly donation
3. Join efforts – allows us to show more people (guests) how they can collaborate with LCCF
The answer we have received has been good, since our guests´ response has been truly marvelous. The first year we began with the program, we had a participation average of 74% of all our guests; the second year the participation was also 74%; however, in 2017 the percentage of guests that agreed to donate increased to 81%, giving as a result a total of $1,027,249 Mexican Pesos.
Additionally, the group that we belong to, Quinta del Golfo de Cortéz, offers an additional annual donation because our shareholders are convinced by the wonderful work that LCCF conducts.
For us, it is a great privilege to continue contributing to the work that LCCF carries out, since their goals meet ours goals in terms of providing support and medical assistance to the people with a lower income. Therefore, we grant LCCF all of our trust and we choose them as the vehicle to carry out these actions, because it also happens to be a very well-structured organism.
This is the reason why we plan to continue with this initiative. We’ll keep our guests and members well informed in regards to the power of their contributions, inviting them not to stop their actions there and in case they are interested in providing more help, invite them to do so.

La primera parte de la presentación fue hecha por el Lic. Eduardo Flores Peña, Director de Proyecto de Solaz Los Cabos quien además está a cargo de la Administración y Marketing de Ventas de Hacienda del Mar y actual Presidente de ASUDESTICO, quien describió un poco de la historia de Hacienda del Mar la cual comenzó en el año de 1994 como el resultado de los esfuerzos realizados por un grupo de soñadores, hombres de negocio y audaces empresarios del estado de Sinaloa acuñado en el año de 1994, quienes convencidos de la posibilidad de combinar lo que les presentaba la naturaleza de los Cabos con un proyecto de diseño y arquitectura innovador, vertieron todo su entusiasmo e imaginación para superar todos los obstáculos que se presentaron y convertir su inversión en una empresa exitosa.
Explicó que este gran cambio responde a diversas razones entre las cuales destacó como principales a las tendencias del mercado; a la expansión potencial que tendrá Los Cabos en los próximos años como uno de los principales destinos turísticos de México por lo cual hay que estar preparado y “vestido para la ocasión”.
Así mismo comentó que después de 21 años hay un hecho que también marca un parteaguas en la historia de Quinta del golfo de Cortéz y que marca su crecimiento: la construcción de un nuevo integrante del grupo: Solaz Los Cabos.
