Flying Baja the 1970s and 1980s

Flying to Baja in the 1970’s and 1980’s

CaboVillas.com talked to Keith Peterman who spent many years flying to Baja California Sur.

Here is an excerpt of his interview with CaboVillas where  he shares some memories and historic photos of these trips dating back to the 1970’s and 1980’s. Most resorts were located on the Sea of Cortez coast and at the tip of the peninsula. Therefore, most of their clientele arrived by boat and private aircraft.
