In the Beginning...
The rugged drama of the desert has been meeting the soft embrace of the sea for thousands of years. The pure white sand beaches remain virtually untouched, the only measure of time being the sun.
Solely the “Guaimas” tribe – and the natural beauty of the land and seascape inhabited this beautiful, hidden paradise. It was in 1539 when the area was discovered by Spanish explorers, and became one of the busiest ports in Mexico.
It is only within the past 40 years that much development has reached the beautiful white beaches. Fishing enthusiasts and winter visitors seeking serenity have begun to discover the area, mostly from the US, Canada, and other parts of Mexico.
San Carlos Today
The tranquility and peace that has defined
San Carlos since the dawn of time, has remained a constant. Sparsely
populated with a mere 1,800 people, the paradise of San Carlos
continues to be a peaceful respite from the rest of the world.
It is the beautiful beaches, quiet and international atmosphere,
sports and fishing facilities, exquisite handmade crafts, fine
dining and spectacular sunsets that draws you in.
elegance of San Carlos continues to be a lure for the motion
picture industry. Films like Catch 22, Lucky Lady ( with Liza
Minelli, Gene Hackman & Burt Reynolds)
and more recently The Mask of Zorro (with Antonio Banderas, Anthony
Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones) were all filmed in San Carlos.
