Los Cabos History

Until the early 1970's the secrets of Baja Sur were known to only the heartiest of travelers. The Sea of Cortes is one of the world's unique ocean environments. It is considered to be the biologically richest body of water on earth, supporting over 800 marine vertebrates species. Formed millions of years ago in what is today the Baja Peninsula slid westward along the San Andreas fault, the Sea stretches 1,125 km north to south, The shallower northern waters give way to deeper nutrient rich zones near the resorts of Loreto and La Paz.

The two towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo make up Los Cabos. Francisco de Ulloa, Hernán Cortés's navigator, came upon Cabo San Lucas in 1537. Pirates discovered this trade route and Cabo San Lucas found itself frequently under siege. San José del Cabo, was founded in 1730 as a Jesuit mission on the banks of the Rio San José estuary.
