Highway 1 dips into arroyos (riverbeds) and climbs onto a floodplain studded with boulders and cacti between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. This stretch of desert terrain, known as the Corridor, has long been the haunt of the rich and famous. In the 1950s a few fishing lodges and remote resorts with private airstrips attracted adventurers and celebrities. Today the region has gated communities, resorts, posh hotels,
and championship golf courses.
