The Mission San Jose del Cabo Añuití was the southernmost of the Jesuit missions that were established during the colonial period in the history of Mexico in the territory of Old California, for the current state of Baja California Sur. The mission was dedicated to St. Joseph, and was built on the site that called Añuití Pericues. Today, part of the town of San Jose del Cabo (Baja California Sur).
The mission was staffed or funded its construction by Villapuente Marquis de la Peña (born in 1670 Muriedas, Santander, and died at the Imperial College of the Jesuits, 1739 Madrid, Spain), was built by Father Nicholas Tamaral and missionary Visitor Jose Echeverria (1730).
Initially the mission was built with fragile materials near the beach and later changes the location to a site further from the coast (13 miles), the site now known as San Jose El Viejo. Los Cabos region forms the southern peninsula of California, and was quite a site visited by Spanish and English sailors nearly two centuries before the establishment of Añuití mission, which also involved the settling of the natives Pericues.
In 1734 the Mission was the scene of the call Pericues Rebellion began in the region of Los Cabos by Indians against the Jesuit priests. As a result, was tortured and murdered Tamaral, Carranco Lorenzo had the same luck.

In 1979 the federal government declared Laguna San Ignacio as gray whale national shelter.
During the summer, gray whales live in the cold waters of the Bering and Chukghi Sea, in winter it frooze, forcing the whales to seek warmer sites. In reaching its final destination, the coast of Baja California, the whales travel nearly 6213 miles in six months, following a parallel route to the coast to the lagoons of Baja California, where they breed. Every year tens of calves born in Mexican waters, the process is extraordinary: the first to arrive are the pregnant females, followed by the remaining females first and then the fertile youngs. After the females are adult males and calves arrive at the end. With winter breeding season ends and the whales return to the feeding areas, following the same order as on arrival, but now accompanied by calves born in the season.
Females reach up to 49 feet long; the males are slightly smaller on average reach 45 feet. Newborns are about 16 feet and weigh around 1102 pounds.
The gray whale predators are orcas or killer whales, large sharks and humans, although hunting is illegal. At present, where whales are concentrated breeding purposes are: Laguna Ojo de liebre, San Ignacio Lagoon, Estero Bay Lopez Mateos and almejas bay.
The lake is 36 miles from downtown San Ignacio and 395 of La Paz, transfer to the estuary from La Paz, lasts 8 hours.
The distance by road between Los Cabos and San Ignacio is 595 miles.
