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.
Local website cabosanlucas.net reports that in 1950 the local population was 548 inhabitants. In 1950 the local population was 548 inhabitants, mostly fishermen and the Compañía de Productos Marinos S.A. tuna cannery workers, at that same time San José del Cabo had less than 2,000 inhabitants.
