El Anhelo Resort & Marina Project Gets Go Ahead

Date Published:

The plans call for a 462-acre tourist development that includes a marina with capacity for over 500 boats and mega yachts of 200 feet, two hotels, residential lots, condominiums, townhouses overlooking the marina and the golf course and a championship golf course with 18 holes, among other “amenities”; the company is owned by Resorts El Anhelo S.A. de CV, to which the governor of Baja California, Francisco Vega de Lamadrid, bought into in March 2009 with an investment of 58 million pesos for 512,500 shares.

In the Environmental Impact Statement filed in Semarnat in December 2010, it stated that the work would begin in January 2011 and end in December 2018.

However, the federal government grants were not obtained until December 2013, after Vega de Lamadrid assumed the governorship of Baja California, and a month later, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation approved the concession to operate a marina.

On February 18 this year (2015), the El Anhelo Resorts was authorized change in land use for the main project.

The East Cape refers to an area along the Sea of Cortez essentially starting about 75 miles south of La Paz, curving around toward the bottom of the peninsula from Punta Pescadero (just north of Los Barriles/Buena Vista), south to the eastern edge of the marina in San Jose del Cabo. It is beautiful, quiet (for now) with miles of sandy beaches, fishing, diving, and is also the location of the famed Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park. Cabo Pulmo is the location of the oldest of only three coral reefs on the west coast of North America. The reef, estimated to be 20,000 years old, is the northernmost coral reef in the eastern Pacific.

El Anhelo Resort & Marina is planned for a parcel a few miles south of Los Barriles/Buena Vista and north of Cabo Pulmo.

This is an ecologically sensitive area, and the project is slated to have its own treatment plant, but some are questioning the supply of water which has been estimated at 10 gallons per SECOND, and that may be a problem when the aquifers are low.
