Aerial Video from 8mm home movie showing 1960s East Cape to Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos.
Here is another old 8mm home movie that I wanted to share. (Posted by Aaron Jacobs). A group of dentists on a fishing trip to Los Barriles in the 1960s. The home video shows the old dirt landing strip at the Palmas, Also, a flight along the coast down to land’s end showing Shipwreck beach, San Jose del Cabo, the Hotel Palmilla, Hotel Cabo San Lucas, etc.
An Excellent aerial view of San José del Cabo at the latter part of the 1970s. This images shows where the current tourist area of San José del Cabo is located. In those times there was only the President Hotel, located next to the estuary.
Excelente panorámica de finales de los 70s. de lo que actualmente es la zona turística de San José del Cabo!! En esos tiempos sólo existía el hotel Presidente… Junto al estero!!

The built-up areas of Cabo (cape) San Lucas stand out as bright, angular areas inland from the main bay on the tip of the Baja California peninsula. The town is nearly centered on the bay, which looks out onto the blue waters of the Gulf of California. Three dry river beds (white sands in this arid environment) descend from rugged, wooded hills to the coastline. River sands then accumulate to form the white beaches visible along the coastline adjacent to the city.
