Casa Dorada Buzzes with Activity through Ping Pong Tournaments and Art Classes
You’ve been looking forward to your Cabo vacation for a long time and when you’re finally here, it feels SOOOO GOOOD to lounge by the pool, cocktail in hand, blissful sunshine warming your body and a warm breeze caressing your skin… But a couple of days into it, you’re ready for some action (and so is your family!)
At Casa Dorada we make sure you and your loved ones stay entertained. Last week, for example, as part of the line-up of scheduled activities, our guests enjoyed a Ping Pong Tournament as well as a weekly Art Class.
The Ping Pong Tournament is becoming quite popular and last week we had seven participants, who also brought along their respective cheerleaders creating an ambiance of competition and fun. The event was a huge success and the champion, Matt, competed against Craig, Greg, Jesse, Daryl, Yosef and Kalle.
Art Classes are also a big hit at Casa Dorada and take place every Saturday 9am-1pm on the Terrace of 12 Tribes Restaurant. Overlooking Land’s End, the Arch and the sparkling waters of the Sea of Cortez, young participants including Anela, Alexis and Deya entered the magical world of princesses and had a brilliant time under the watchful eye of their maestro!
Next time you’re at Casa Dorada, ask our Concierge about the different activities around the resort so you don’t miss the fun.

Revamped Dinner Menu at 12 Tribes Just in Time for Mother’s Day
Hello everyone! Carlos Bonilla here, once again bringing you great news from our Food and Beverage program at Casa Dorada. Everyone is already upbeat about celebrating Mother’s Day not just in the US but also in México. Both dates usually coincide because in Mexico, Mother’s Day is on the 10th, usually around the date in the U.S., so needless to say, we use this as a pretext to do things our style and celebrate for a whole week. So, congratulations to all the Mothers around the world! In other news, we have just revamped our Dinner Menu at 12 Tribes with some new and exciting dishes, like the Double Pork chop in Chipotle Cream with sautéed wild mushrooms. It´s quite the undertaking to finish up one of these bad boys! Don´t forget that as of this spring we have been working with our “We proudly serve” Starbucks program. If you feel like enjoying the sun and the view with a nice cup of Joe in the morning by the pool, well, you arrived at the right place.
Keep track of what´s happening at Casa Dorada through our Facebook page (restaurant12tribes) or follow us on Twitter @12_Tribes to get the latest news from our side of the world. See you soon with some more exciting news from your Casa Dorada F&B Program. Cheers!
Grand Sweet Fifteen Crowned with Success
Ask any young Mexican girl what the most important event of her life is and most of them will tell you, without hesitation, that it’s their fiesta de quince años, or 15th birthday. Traditionally marking the transition from childhood to womanhood, Quinceañera is a BIG DEAL in Mexico! That’s why when Dulce’s parents turned to us to host her big fiesta, we were honored, but at the same time we knew everything had to be perfect.
Our team worked hard to make Dulce’s birthday bash one to remember (and boast about forever) so when we received the following thank-you note, we knew we made it happen.
Dulce’s father, Antonio Reyna, wrote to us:
“(…)My wife and I are very grateful for the significant and memorable event celebrating our daughter’s 15th birthday (at Casa Dorada). I have to say you have an excellent team with everyone offering their willingness to help and positive attitude.
I am particularly grateful to Jazmin for her professionalism, dedication and great accessibility in the coordination of this event. She always made sure everything went EXACTLY according to plan.”
Mr Reyna went on to emphasize the great work our team had done in the preparation of the welcome cocktail where Dulce’s guests enjoyed an original refreshing blue drink, her favorite color. A fantastic dinner at 12 Tribes Restaurant along with Casa Dorada’s facilities were also considered highlights of the evening.
“The event was the best ever and it surpassed all our expectations. Thank you to all those who made it such a huge success,” he added.
It was truly our pleasure to participate in this spectacular event and we appreciate the confidence entrusted in us. Best wishes once again, Dulce!
Mexican Celebrity Soccer Player Picks Casa Dorada for Vacation
29 April, 2013
We love celebrity spotting and just last week we were able to add yet another big name to our list of famous Casa Dorada guests. To the joy of Mexican soccer fans on our team, we hosted Ignacio Vázquez, a former Chivas player, who indulged them with a special one-on-one moment during his stay.
Now retired, Vázquez made his league debut with Chivas during the 1991-92 season. He scored 10 goals in each of the next two seasons, leading the club in scoring and winning the center forward position.
He was also a member of the Mexican Olympic team competing at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain, playing in Mexico's 1-1 draw against Denmark on July 26, 1992.
More celebrity news coming soon!
Recipe for a Fun Friday Night in Cabo: Wine & Dine & Dance
We hope everyone had a fantastic weekend because here at Casa Dorada we had a blast! Not only did we enjoy pleasant sunny days with temperature already in the 80’s, we also hosted a unique and fun event last Friday, April 5th.
12 Tribes Restaurant together with Cabo Wine Club put together a perfect fiesta where guests were invited to bring bottles of their favorite wine, enjoy signature Casa Dorada Mexican food and dance the evening away.
On the menu were salads, ceviches, tortilla soup, specialties from the grill, as well as traditional Mexican fare such as scrumptious chicken in mole sauce, tacos, quesadillas, sopes and a range of Mexican desserts.
Who could ask for more?!
But there was more, nonetheless. In addition to live entertainment, there was also a 50/50 drawing with all money raised going to Casa San Miguel Senior Center in Cabo San Lucas.
After the success of last Friday’s event we hope to have much more of the same coming soon. So stay tuned because at Casa Dorada there’s ALWAYS something fun going on and we don’t want you to MISS IT.
