So it's between 1970 and 1975? I'll go with 1974.

Cabo San Lucas 53 years ago (1968). Today I’m wondering how many times it survived a Hurricane passing nearby.

The resort on the left was called The Hotel Camino Real later renamed in 1977 as Hotel Hacienda. In the foreground is the sand airstrip. There was no marina and the wharf in the picture was for the old fish cannery now only ruins on the public beach next to the current Naval Station.

For reference, the future marina channel would be in the middle foreground of the photo.

The internet (http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/real-turismo-s-a-de-c-v-history/) says the hotel wasn't purchased by the Camino Real people until 1970, but doesn't say what it was called previously.
