“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.
