As event planners we get to see and plan some great events but when something comes along that is fun, focused around the community, located on one of our beautiful beaches and allows us to let loose and join in on all the fun, we get so excited! My husband Alfredo Salafranca, owns a stand up paddle store in San Jose del Cabo, SUP Mexico, has a huge love for the ocean and an even bigger love for his family and spending time together. So we put our heads together and said…..hey, lets do something the entire community will enjoy, showcase stand up paddling, have fun activities for all ages to enjoy and just have a casual yet organized event at the beach……..and that is exactly what we are doing. It was a no brainer!
We are pleased to announce the Fun in the Sun Beach Festival on Palmilla Beach, Saturday March 26th from 9-5pm. This action packed event has been made possible thanks to Bliss Events Los Cabos, SUP Mexico, Snell Real Estate and Del Mar Development. Once again, we must thank them for their continued support in the community.
The main events will be two stand up paddle races that will be surrounded by activities for all ages. Since this sport is relatively new, we are all just learning. So, don’t be shy and join us on the water for a little friendly competition. Don’t forget, you can visit the new SUP Mexico store for lessons or rentals to practice before the race.
The beach festival is a free event that has been organized to bring the community together for a fun day at the beach full of activities for all ages. Bring your own chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc and set up for the day. We have tons of things planned and encourage you to join us and to tell all of your friends. (Please leave dogs at home if possible).

Stand Up paddle
Beach Volleyball (1-2 nets)
