San Jose del Cabo


San José del Cabo’s authentic Mexican atmosphere is a charming counterpoint to the non-stop action of sister city Cabo San Lucas. Just 20 miles away from Cabo at the other end of the Tourist Corridor, you’ll find a historic town of courtyard restaurants, charming architecture, boutiques, and a beautiful church facing the traditional town square. San José’s pace is slower than that of its bustling sister city—perfect for honeymooners and those seeking a more traditional Mexican getaway.

The first community in Los Cabos, San José was once the home to the local Pericú tribe, a stop for Spanish galleons and a hiding spot for pirates.

Accommodations range from graceful private villas overlooking the Sea of Cortez to breathtaking resorts lining the warm blonde beaches. Many resorts are located along the beachfront just south of downtown. Great for relaxing and beachcombing, the beaches in the area are not recommended for swimming.

At the end of the Hotel Zone, you’ll find the Estero San José, a beautiful palm-lined estuary rich in native bird life. This verdant natural oasis is a striking contrast to the dramatic desert scenery of Los Cabos.

A thriving art district is home to a number of exciting galleries, showcasing the works of Mexican and international artists in a variety of media. On Thursday evenings from November to June, the Art Walk is a great way to experience the many galleries of San José del Cabo, many of which keep their doors open late for this special weekly event that also features specials at many local restaurants.

Just outside of San José del Cabo, Puerto Los Cabos is one of the area’s fastest rising stars. This area is home to chic boutique-style hotels, a few great eateries, luxury villa rentals and a world-class marina. The pace is laid-back and relaxing – perfect for visitors looking for an alternative to the bustle of Cabo San Lucas.What you need to know:
