Historic Mexico Awaits Today, the abandoned 47-foot tall “La Ramona” is unstable. Since 2015, ICF and Corredor Histórico CAREM, A.C. have partnered to restore this symbol of the town’s history. The project partners believe that restoring this historic icon will create a healthier public space for local community members, and will contribute to the cultural and economic revival of El Triunfo by driving alternative tourism. Over the last year two successful Gastro/Vino events brought attention to El Triunfo and the restoration of La Ramona. The events were sponsored by the International Community Foundation (ICF) & CAREM in participation with the local Ejido, Government authorities, and restaurant and wine distributors from throughout the region. These events were a big success and were enjoyed by hundreds of donors from Los Cabo to La Paz, eager to support the restoration project! If you would like a chance to be part of the lasting legacy in Baja California Sur and help to promote tourism and growth, in the spirit of preservation, there are several ways to contribute. The La Ramona Adopt-A-Brick Program, provides the opportunity to “adopt a brick” for the smokestack. There is also the La Ramona-CAREM Fund at ICF, which accepts general donations for the Initiative. Both donation links can be found at www.icfdn.org. Though construction has been put on hold for southern Baja’s hurricane season, it is scheduled to begin again before the end of 2017, with completion expected in Spring 2018. Sign up for ICF’s mailing list to receive updates about construction progress and inaugural celebrations! Be a part of the rich Mexican Heritage and enjoy a day trip to El Triunfo to relive the charm of Old Mexico!]]>
