Collection Notes: Hilton Los Cabos

Coastal Vibrations and Celebratory Culture at the Hilton Los Cabos

The Hilton Los Cabos hotel is an upscale, beachside resort tropically stationed amidst the palm trees of the southern coast of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. Our curated collection invokes contemporary culture and vibrant local history, embodying the region’s evolving identity, first as a remote outpost for missionaries and now as a destination for modern adventurers.

To express the region’s rich past and playful present, we featured works that illustrate notable Mexican legends while highlighting the natural beauty of the environment. Several photographers, painters and sculptors contributed their work to visualize the ethos of the Hilton Los Cabos. Read on to discover the artists who made this collection come to fruition!
