Original, circa 1960’s, site where the Bahia hotel would be constructed in the mid to late1980’s. This is the former residence of fisherman Oscar Montaño Herrera circa 1960. Known as Don Yoka, he was a pioneer of Los Cabos’ coastal fisheries. More than a quarter century ago, Don Juan Esquivel built one of the first hotels on Medano Beach, circa mid 1980’s, on the site that originally belonged to Don Yoka.

“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
