Underdeveloped and unexplored for most of its history, San Jose del Cabo emerged as a major tourist destination in the 1970s, when a growing number of sun-and-sand visitors discovered the area's appealing beaches.
You'll explore and learn at Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery and Tanya Talamante. Relax by the water at Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach) and Santa Maria Beach. Step out of San Jose del Cabo to go to Cabo San Lucas and see Arte de Origen, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia San Jose, get in on the family fun at Wild Canyon Adventures, view the masterpieces at Paquime, and browse the exhibits of Movimiento Art Gallery.
