Visit El Triunfo
Home to only a few hundred residents, El Triunfo, or “The Triumph,” was once a thriving old silver mining town in Baja California Sur. Today, Los Cabos visitors come to visit and explore a relic of local history. There are two museums in town: Museo de Plata, which showcases the town’s history, and Museo de la Musica, which displays pianos and other musical instruments shipped to the area during the town’s mining heyday. Well-considered a historic landmark, a walk through the place will have travelers mesmerized by the bright yellow Mission-style church, La Ramona, with its 115-foot smokestack reaching high into the sky. Near the Mission are a restaurant and a bar, Caffe El Triunfo and Bar El Minero. Sample the craft beer, artisanal cheese, and wines before you head out to explore a bit. A day trip to the Cactus Sanctuary just outside of town is a must, as it exhibits cacti found only in this part of the world. Simply visiting the town is a “triumph,” as this is truly one of the most impressive little pueblos along the Baja California Peninsula.
