As others have noted above: forget it; unless you are going there to help with the cleanup and providing human services. Make sure your typhoid and hepatitis vaccinations are up to date.
Even in the USA it takes several weeks, at least, to get the power back on in most areas (not all) after a cat #2, much less a cat #3 storm. In the USA the power crews from many states help recreate the grid in the cities affected; where are all those crews and equipment going to come from to restore Cabo's infrastructure? Same for cleaning up.
I am sure thousands of locals are homeless; and the logical place for the gov't to give them shelter would be the thousands of hotel rooms in the tourist zone. Will the gov't care about helping the high % of poor folks down there and do that? Hmmm.
Go to Cancun; similar tourist trap. Nice beaches.
