Visitors frequently return repeatedly to discover more about the Los Cabos area and enjoy the superb climate.
Party lovers and tourists who like plenty of sun and sea tend to congregate around Cabo San Lucas. Those who prefer a more tranquil setting for their vacation and an opportunity to find out more about the Los Cobos area, including its wildlife, frequently prefer to stay in or around San Jose del Cabo. Connecting the two towns is a large highway, known as the Corridor.
Discovered by the Spanish during the 16th Century, historically Los Cabos was a significant location for trade with several European countries. Unfortunately the proximity of so many vessels laden with expensive goods also meant that the area was well-known for pirates! Spanish Jesuits established several of the present day towns and villages, explaining why some of the older buildings have a distinctly European influence. Its popularity as a vacation spot really began in the 1950’s, when affluent Californians found out more about the Los Cabos area and flocked there to enjoy the combination of idyllic weather and unspoiled scenery which are still hallmarks of the area.
