The legendary Captain Thomas Ritchie 1809 to 1872
The history of Cabo San Lucas begins in a remote place in time when it was inhabited by settlers of whom little is known even though they left tracks of their presence in the area. One of the most important findings is the Man of Matancitas with height between 1.75 and 1.80m and longevity of at least 75 years who fed on vegetables and proteins. Later inhabitants include the honest and friendly Pericúes, men with a remarkable resemblance to the more modern villagers who were well formed.
