Spring equinox welcomed at TierraLuna Gardens

A group of locals and tourists celebrated the spring equinox at TierraLuna Gardens by participating in energizing yoga and guided meditation with instructors Karoll Gonzalez and Paola Contreras.

Participants were encouraged to use the energy they created from these activities to sow their intentions and begin the spring season with transformational energy because this is when flowers start to bloom.

With the more than 20 participants, Paola Contreras remarked, they performed the sequence of 108 salutations to the Sun as well as some meditation and relaxation.

“What we attempted to do today was to generate all the energy needed to bloom, sow our intentions, and close this cycle that is ending from autumn-winter, to begin with spring-summer.”

Recently, the Los Cabos Tourism Trust (Fiturca) met with German tour operators and airlines at the Berlin International Tourism Fair (ITB) to discuss how to forge business partnerships that will eventually result in a direct flight between Germany and Los Cabos.

The tourism product offered by Los Cabos has drawn Europeans in part because it is innovative and continually seeks to be validated in accordance with visitor needs, according to Rodrigo Esponda Cascajares, director of Fiturca.

In addition to increasing their economic revenue, which is estimated to be 9 thousand pesos per day in the case of international tourism, what Fiturca is looking for in the new emerging markets is that they prolong their stay in the destination.
