the land, where Roman legions believed they were at the end of
the land as they watched the sinking of the sun into the blue
waters. The power, strength and dominance of the land suddenly
shifted to the mighty sea. Los Cabos is the finisterre of the
Baja California Peninsula, the arm of Mexico which merges into
the vast ocean and creates one of the most exclusive natural

explorer Jacques Costeau, the Sea of Cortez is filled with a
large number of indigenous marine species making it the perfect

century and it remained a busy trading port and stop over for
