On March 29, 2018 there was a dedication ceremony, in honor of Don Luis Bulnes Molleda, one of the Baja Pioneros, along with an unveiling of his statue. Don Luis is considered to be the father of Sportfishing in Cabo San Lucas, among his many other accomplishments.
Jorge Tellez, on behalf of Marina Fundadores (Founders), requested and was granted permission to restore and relocate the monument.
Mid-afternoon, March 29, 2018, the dedication was held as the statue was unveiled on the malecón overlooking the Cabo San Lucas Marina at the Fonatur roundabout, next to Hotel Breathless and in front of Marina Fundadores in Cabo San Lucas.

“Buenos Dias. This photo is full of a thousand memories. At that time to operate all the services focused on tourism hoteliers gave lodging, laundry and three meal to all employees. In this photo in the lower left corner are the rooms and dining room for the aforementioned, so tourism began in Cabo San Lucas. I do not know the credit of this photo. It has much history of course. Greetings” Maria Faustina Wilkes Ritchie
