Excerpt from Los Cabos Magazine Issue 9, 2004.
Under construction, 2,000-acre Puerto Los Cabos is the most ambitious destination resort development in the history of Los Cabos. A master-planned village with a 400-slip marina: hotels, condominiums, gated communities and golf courses will snake along three miles of pristine coastline. by Carol Billups.

Old Tuna Cannery

In 1917 an American company established floating plant for the exploitation of tuna, and ten years later the Marine Products Company was established.  1917 – Una compañía estadounidense estableció en 1917 una planta flotante para el aprovechamiento del atún, y diez años después se estableció la Compañía de Productos Marinos.   Source: http://raulverdugo.blogspot.mx/2011/08/cabo-san-lucas.html

In this impressive photograph, which was taken at the beginning of the decade of the seventies of the twentieth century, we see the background tuna packer Pando, at the bottom the Finisterra hotel that was his huge beach watching the Pacific.

DSC09549It is indeed surprising to see detail this photograph was taken in 1970, although the date is not confirmed, I guess it will be in that year when it was taken. We clearly see the building occupied by the tuna cannery Pando and the few buildings that were in what is now the tourist marina of Cabo San Lucas, back is a warehouse, maybe it was part of the plant of Don Elias Pando. We reached the pier also served notice to the packing and would later be used for ferry service that existed between this point and Puerto Vallarta. We have been asked as then population centers that now make up the municipality of Los Cabos.

What remains of the old tuna canning plant in Cabo San Lucas is merely a shell of its former self. Nearly destroyed by a hurricane in the 1940’s and rebuilt in the 1950’s the old building stands as piece of local history. The historic Cabo San Lucas tuna cannery in the photo above was built in 1927 and kept in operation until 1980.
