Meaningful Tourism: Your chance to help Los Cabos
Did you know Solmar Hotels & Resorts has founded an association to create a positive impact within the Los Cabos community? Yes, Solmar Foundation has strived for 13 years now bringing a hand to those who need it most in our beautiful destination. Under the premise “A tourist destination is the reflect of its community”, many efforts have been held in order to support many laudable projects in Los Cabos, such as Corazón de Niño which donates heart surgeries for children with heart diseases; Red Autismo, a civil association that help children with autism; Amigos de los Niños that brings quality health care in Los Cabos to children up to the age of 18 who have no other means of receiving it, just to name a few.
Now, Solmar Foundation together with United Way Mexico Foundation, International Community Foundation and Club de niños y niñas (Boys and Girls Club) de Baja California Sur, have joined forces in order to guarantee the children’s universal right to play. For this matter, they have inaugurated a “Ludoteca” or playroom that seeks to provide a joyful space for the kids’ and adolescents’ integral development.
Psychomotricity, language disorders, sociability, cognitive and emotional abilities, specific knowledge, creativity and first and foremost, divertissement are part of the thorough program led by specialists at the Ludoteca.

The importance of games and playful activities were recognized in 1959, with the Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
A little bit of history
Solmar Foundation was founded in 2011, but the history goes back to 1955, when Luis Bulnes Molleda, founder of Solmar Hotels & Resorts, was appointed General Manager of the only tuna packing company in Mexico, based in Los Cabos. Even when this destination is classified among the best in the world, 60% of its population lives in poverty and with limited access to education and health services, as well as job opportunities. Don Luis —as he was respectfully known— was an empathic person who firmly believed that a destination is a reflection of its inhabitants: if they live a quality life, it directly impacts the well-being and tourist safety of the destination. So he looked for a way to help the community and founded the fire department and the nursing home.
If you would like to join these initiatives, you are welcome to take part in it by scheduling visits to the communities during your stay; bring clothes, toys and hygiene essentials with you; and donate $10 USD upon check-out, which will be charged to your suite bill.

There is no doubt that tacos are the most representative dish of Mexican gastronomy. So much so that you can find a wide variety of tacos throughout the country, and in many parts of the world! But, did you know that this simple, yet delicious dish dates back to the mid 16th century?
If we had to choose only one profession that is an example of passion and love for what they do, we would pick chefs above all. They all seem to have an overflow of creativity and an unmistakable drive to explore and innovate —so common in chefs, that you could say they are all cut from the same cloth.
