Seafarers have long been attracted to the shores of what is now called Los Cabos.

Beginning in the late 16th and early 17th century notorious pirates such as Sir Francis Drake and Thomas Cavendish hid out in the many coves and bays lining the coast to ambush the Spanish Galleons on their way to the Philippines.

Later, Spanish missionaries attempted to convert the Guaycura and Pericu natives to Christianity. However, by the early 1800s, the missionaries had all vanished as the Spanish soldiers and disease had decimated to population.

After the missionaries left the areas rocky spires and arches remained virtually unnoticed until after World War 11, when Hollywood discovered the area.

Such dignitaries such as John Wayne and Bing Crosby frequented the area to enjoy the sport fishing off the southern coast, which had earned the name “Marlin Alley”.

The area remained difficult to reach until the Mexican Government built the Transpeninsular Highway which connected the area to Southern California, as well as the rest of North America.

It is now one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. It features fine beaches, luxurious surroundings, lively nightlife, and some of the best sport-fishing in the world.
