History of Guaycura
Fine decor and art come hand in hand at the Guaycura Boutique Hotel & Spa. Its well-preserved historic building, which dates back to the mid-ninteenth century, initially belonged to the Domínguez family. Later on, it was transformed into a school, a post office and even an art academy for young ladies, where art, embroidery and music classes were offered. It became a police station in the thirties, and more recently, a boarding house for students from all over the state of Baja California Sur, until the current owners, led by the Salas family, acquired it a few years ago. The hotel has been in service since Spring 2010.
