Los Cabos Culture


Visit an artistic culture that dates back thousands of years.

Missionaries who were familiar with the cave paintings found in the Sierra de la Laguna mountains above Los Cabos asked the native Cochimi about them and were told they were done by a race of giant people long ago. If you visit these rugged hills set against a backdrop of light, sea, sky, mountains and desert, you will begin to understand how the creative psyche can be awakened, and why Los Cabos has become a mecca for artists and art galleries.
