History of Grand Solmar

Words cannot do justice to what Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas will offer its guests, you’ll just have to experience it for yourself.

The resort is protected by the first hills at Land’s End on the Pacific Ocean side, a fact which seems fitting because of the building on the other side of the hill: the old cannery. One-time cannery manager Don Luis Bulnes Molleda was the founder of the Solmar Group of resorts, restaurants, and fishing boats, and one of the most important figures in the transition of Cabo San Lucas from tuna packing town to premier tourist destination.

Since 1965, Solmar has been inextricably intertwined with the history and prosperity of Los Cabos. What first began as a small fishing village, Solmar helped transform into one of the best vacation destinations in all of Baja. Prior to Solmar Hotels and Resorts, the economy of Los Cabos primarily relied upon a fishing cannery.

Upon its closing, Solmar created a sport fishing fleet, which ultimately became a significant source of livelihood for local residents. With the exponential growth of Los Cabos sport fishing, the founders of Solmar were able to fund and develop water wells, install power lines, and negotiate a highway between here, La Paz, and the airport. Solmar’s humble beginnings laid the foundation for the company’s continued efforts to make Los Cabos the best of the Baja and for all to enjoy.
