San Carlos and Guaymas Photos

This week’s rain lit up the morning sky and my inbox was flooded with beautiful photos. Here’s a stunning arc of color hanging in the sky above Marina Real, by Cliff Pringle

Apparently, the pot of gold is on top of Tetakawi, by Jamie Baird

This fun group came up with a great idea — to spend a week with Omar, going to each of his unique evening shows throughout the week

It’s not every day that we have professional athletes join us in San Carlos. Here’s pro players Ben Johns and Christine McGrath helping San Carlos pickleballers improve their skills at Mirador Courts. Thanks to James Main for introducing them to our little piece of paradise.

New Year Detox Program at the San Carlos Wellness Centre & Spa

It’s that time of the year when we all need to think about different ways to Detox our bodies of harmful toxins. Our goal at the San Carlos Wellness Centre & Spa is to help you heal and renew your cells and stay healthy. Detoxification of the body is vitally important for good health.

1. Our Full Body Detox / French Clay Wrap is a place to start, hugely successful in the past and truly beneficial. First you receive a full sugar body scrub, removing all the dead skin cells. Then a clay mask is applied and you are wrapped in steamy sheets for about 25 minutes while you sweat and naturally detox your body. While you detox, your therapist will give you a peppermint or rosemary head massage. After your shower, your therapist will lightly massage you with a hydrating body butter. Your body will continue to naturally detox after this treatment. Special Price: $69 USD

2. Foot Detox. Another optional detox is to detox through your feet. We start off by soaking your feet in warm water with a mixture of special herbs and salts for about 10 minutes. Your therapist will then apply a detoxing clay mixture to your feet while being wrapped in hot towels for 10 minutes. This is followed by applying a moisturizing body butter to your feet. Special Price: $29 USD

Add on: Optional Peppermint Head Massage. Special Price: $7 USD

3. Try our Ionic Detox Foot Bath. Special Price: $13 USD

4. Our Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps detoxification, followed by reflexology and combined with Peppermint Head Massage. Special Price: $49 USD

5. Follow any of these treatments with a healing Combo of Chakra balancing and Reiki for $39 USD.

Other News Around Town

You Can Help Rescate Double its Membership!

Rescate will officially launch a six-week membership drive at the San Carlos Information Session at Club Deportivo at 7:00pm on Thursday, January 17. The membership drive will run until the end of February and all new Gold Card Members who join Rescate during the drive will receive a complimentary t-shirt.

Rescate is the San Carlos ambulance and rescue service which also offers emergency first aid on a walk-in basis. For the past 40 years it has existed and thrived solely through fundraising and donations. Although Gold Card memberships are a major donation source, there are only 300 memberships at this time. Given the size of San Carlos and the ex-pat community, our goal is to double the number of memberships by February 28, 2019.

Gold Card membership is available at three different levels, all of which are tax deductible in the United States. Gold Card memberships cover the purchasing member, immediate family and non-resident houseguests of the member. You do not need to be a San Carlos resident to buy a membership.

14 Kt. membership ($125 USD) supports Rescate and helps to keep it in your community.

18 Kt. membership ($200 USD single, $250 USD family) does the same. Additionally, members at this level are entitled to:

  • Physician ordered emergency transportation to other hospitals, such as CIMA in Hermosillo, via private ambulance (paid for by Rescate).
  • Free admission to the annual Welcome Back Margarita Party and Theatrical Event.

24 Kt. membership ($500 USD) includes the above and two free entrance passes to the President’s Cup Golf Tournament (coming up soon on January 26th & 27th).

While Gold Card Memberships have personal benefits to the members, the most important role of membership is to support Rescate and keep it in San Carlos. Your participation in the Gold Card program supports the ongoing operation of Rescate as well as the acquisition of additional equipment, personnel and training that will help us continue to meet your emergency needs.

To hear more about Rescate, health care options, hospitalization and dying in Mexico, please attend our panel presentation and interactive session at Club Deportivo on Thursday, January 17, at 7:00pm. Doors and bar will open at 6:30pm.

Fishing, Golfing & Birding Reports

Fishing Report

The bite is on! Maybe I will see you at the hot spot tomorrow. We tried to run from the bonita, but they were everywhere on Tuesday. We struggled to make double digits on bonita for a couple days, but not on Tuesday. Get out there before the ‘pre- full moon slump’, however long that ever lasts.

A lot of langostina pelagic crab have moved in. They were stuffing up fish at the Island, and maybe local fish might experience some ‘crab constipation’. They were also stuffed with small baitfish lately. I keep seeing big fish marks in close around huge bait balls, but they weren’t biting. The seaweed bite unfortunately and prematurely is excellent in close. We caught some bonita and large barracuda around the inshore bait balls on Tuesday. It’s possible that some of the marks are yellowtail. We caught some small yellowtail around birds dipping for langostina on Sunday. Any upwellings help push up the crab, so watch for those birds working.

As I turned over the second round of bonita cleaning to Arturo this morning and tried to extend our trip and sight seeing and photography along our beautiful coastline in glass calm conditions, we came across four pangas hauling them in on the end of the Seamounts. In a little over an hour we had our fill of medium to large sized yellowtail caught on the jig. It was great to see the yellowtail finally turn on again, and especially right in close. Some afternoons have produced. Water temps were up to 73 today! Some warm currents are still pushing up from the south. The water is clear. I don’t think we will see a marlin, but plenty of fish should be caught if you are on the water this week!

Birding Report

We had a whopping 21 birders for our last outing – up from 7 or 8 in the past couple of weeks. Obviously people are starting to arrive after the holidays. Since so many had not been here since last season, we headed out to the Esterito Road watering hole to see the warbler flock that has been hanging out there. It took awhile for them to show up but they finally did and everyone was able to see the Orange-crowned and Black-throated Gray Warblers bathing and posing in their nano-second intervals. We also had a Chipping Sparrow which was my first of the season.

After trying some birding at the Country Club settlement ponds (empty due to workers completely clearing all around the pond), we headed to the Marina Seca ponds (officially the San Carlos CEA settlement ponds.) Lots of ducks, (Teals, Ruddy, Northern Shovelers), Sora, Common Gallinule, etc. but it started to rain. Not wanting to melt, we headed out to Tascari restaurant (on the road into San Carlos) for Comida del Dia.

Speaking of rain, one of our birders recently got stuck trying to cross the dirt to get to the water at Estero del Soldado. Luckily for him, he was able to finally get out. That “dirt” becomes slick and muddy with rain. Best to wait for several days with lots of sun to dry it out.

This week’s Bird of the Week is the Greater Pewee. It is a large, gray flycatcher of Mexican and Central American pine forests and makes its way into the United States only in the “Mexican” mountains of southern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. Obviously, we are not surrounded by pine forests so it is considered a rare bird for this area. It has been quite a treat to watch it since its arrival around two weeks ago. While many consider it a rather plain and boringly gray flycatcher, it is known for its spiky tufted crest and a totally yellow lower mandible. Ours has a favorite dead tree on the Esterito Road and will perch and sing for minutes at a time.

The Greater Pewee is famous as a “vigorous defender of its nest.” It will drive away bigger birds and even mammals. Smaller bird species will often build their nests close to a Pewee nest and some scientists believe it is a deliberate attempt to take advantage of the aggressive nature of their “protector.”

I suspect our little guy is staying in Cañon del Nacapule. It’s not far, as a Pewee flies, from there to its favorite tree in our warbler bathing pond..

We will meet for our next outing on Thursday, January 17 at 8:00am at the Esterito Cafe at the bottom of the road leading west around Bahia San Carlos. Please do not feel you have to be an expert to join our group. If you do not know anything except that you want to know more, our group will help you learn. If you are an experienced birder and just want to know other birders, then join us and share your experience. Please bring your water, sun and insect protection, and a chair. And your binoculars, of course. Outings usually last until around 11:30am or so and we then head to lunch. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

Golfing Report

Ladies Club
 – January 8 marked the 1st week of the Annual Team Tournament. The 2-lady teams played one round where only the best score is counted and then next week the 2nd round as a Chapman Event. After the 1st round, Pamela Bertrand & Patricia Sanson, with a net 62, were leading by only one stroke over Karen Stewart & Patricia Bradley, who were only one up over Marsha Oliver & Susan deMik. The rest of the field is closely bunched behind the leaders. Here’s the link to all of the scores.

Men’s Club – January 10. The game of the day was a 2-Man SHAMBLE. This is a fun competition where the team picks the best drive and then they both finish from that spot with their own ball. To make it easier, the guys only had to score ONE of the two scores. Chuck Schrader fresh off recovering from his injured shoulder teamed up with Dwight Barnes to shoot a Net 61 to win the ‘A’ Flight in a countback over Bill Anderson & Harry Bargen. Nice scoring guys. In the ‘B’ Flight, Dennis Sogn continued his fine play, teaming with Terry Layden to shoot 63 distancing the 2nd place team of Steve Riedel & Ron Wolfkill. And the LDM contingent can hold its head high with Dave Armstrong & Gary Lemke taking the ‘C’ flight with a 63 by only a stroke over Vaughn Johnson & Al Kohut. Lots of good individual scoring this week too with Dwight Barnes and Gene Poppe both shooting lovely gross 71’s and Clint Oliver Chuck Shrader right behind with even par 72’s

Upcoming Events:
– January 15 – Ladies Day
– January 17 – Men’s Day – Scoring one low gross, one low net
– January 24 – Men’s Day – Individual Stableford Scoring
