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.
