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.

Flying to Baja in the 1970’s and 1980’s

CaboVillas.com talked to Keith Peterman who spent many years flying to Baja California Sur.

Here is an excerpt of his interview with CaboVillas where  he shares some memories and historic photos of these trips dating back to the 1970’s and 1980’s. Most resorts were located on the Sea of Cortez coast and at the tip of the peninsula. Therefore, most of their clientele arrived by boat and private aircraft.
