Our Club & Community
Los Barriles is a small Mexican town on the Baja peninsula and Sea of Cortes 70 miles north of Cabo San Lucas. The population fluctuates with the seasons and is comprised of about two-thirds local Mexicans and one third foreign residents from the USA, Canada and Europe. Our beautiful community is known around the world for its safety and tranquility, big game fishing, boating, kite boarding and wind surfing, temperate climate and the friendliest people you have ever met.

LOW Auction 2017
Just a reminder the 2017 Lord Of the Wind kicks off in January and we expect to draw thousands to our small pueblo Los Barriles again this year.
LOW has grown to be a cornerstone of our Rotary Club’s fund raising in East Cape, and the cornerstone of LOW is the annual art and adventure auction. Every year our friends and members step up and donate creative and memorable items.

I would like to thank the members who attended the “Welcome Back to Baja” dinner at El Gecko’s Saturday night. I hope you had a great time. It was a huge financial success for Rotary and East Cape recycle. Over $1200 was raised for community projects. Rotary’s share will be used in the repair and upgrade to the town cancha where the kids spend so much time.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Club Rotario Los Barriles Cabo de Este

It is with great sadness that I inform you Marshal Lewis’s wife Julie passed away yesterday. She fought a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer that was impossible to win. Our club sends Marshal and his family all of our sympathy, prayers, and love.

A teacher surrounded by many young students was asked who her favorite child was, and she responded with ‘over time they all are but at any particular time – the ones that need me the most.’
Over 250 children are enrolled in our Los Barriles elementary school, and the number who rely on school lunches for nourishment fluctuates. The school cafeteria had only a small kitchen, limited seating, and a shaded play area in disrepair. It has been a desire for a number of years to remodel the kitchen and eating area with the objective of improving the nourishment available for these children.
