On May 27th, Netflix released Blue Miracle, receiving great comments from viewers. The Netflix movie is based on an incredible true story that few know about. The movie follows the story of orphan children who are on the verge of losing their orphanage, Casa Hogar which is based in Cabo San Lucas, due to dept. When Hurricane Odile devastated the area (and the structure of Casa Hogar) in 2014, the orphanage’s guardian, Omar, and the kids enter a prestigious and challenging fishing competition in order to save their orphanage with the help of a down on luck boat captain.

And guess what? The beautiful seaside destinations seen in the movie, which have been classified as “eye-catching and aesthetically appealing,” is none other than our beautiful Marina Casa de Campo!
