The year was 1535 when Hernan Cortes sailed with three galleons into a tranquil bay in the waters of Los Cabos. Soon the Spanish established a trade route from the Baja peninsula and Mexican coast to Spain. They carried tons of oriental silks, spices one way, Mexican silver and gold the other. It just so happened English pirates loved the silver and gold too. Using Cabos San Lucas as their base, they had a field day raiding up and down the Pacific coast.
Today, it’s not muskets and swords that rule. World class accommodations and pristine natural beauty do. This is how Los Cabos has become a prize more valuable than silver and gold.
