Photographer's Note

Cabo San Lucas is a city at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. Archaeological excavations have shown evidence of continual human habitation in the area for at least 10,000 years. It was a fishing village for many years and in 1917, an American company built a floating platform to catch tuna and and experts in the area say that this tuna plant was the beginning of development at Cabo San Lucas.
The warmth of the waters at Cabo San Lucas, the beauty of its beaches, the abundance of sport fish, and nearby surfing motivated a great number of both foreign and Mexican vacationers to spend their vacations in large-scale tourist developments there. This began in 1974 when the Mexican government created the infrastructure to turn Cabo San Lucas into a major center for tourism in Mexico. Cabo is a major port for many cruise ships. It offers sandy beaches, world-class scuba diving locations,, and abundant marine life. It has become a heavily trafficked holiday destination with numerous resorts and timeshares along the coast between San Lucas and San José del Cabo.
