San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo ©
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 discover tucked-away gems like Cuadra San Francisco and Parroquia San Jose. Venture out of the city with trips to Cabo San Lucas (Adrenaline & Extreme Tours, Cabo Dolphins by Cabo Adventures, &more). There's still lots to do: get outside with Outdoor Activities, browse the fresh offerings at Mercado Municipal, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach), and stroll through Santa Maria Beach.
