San Jose del Cabo

4.2
Landmarks · Swim with Dolphins · Nightlife
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. A holiday in San Jose del Cabo remains a sea-oriented affair, with plenty of chances to swim, sail, fish, or simply kick back on the warm sand with a cold cocktail in hand. The town features a charming downtown, with adobe houses and restored 19th-century buildings housing hip restaurants and well-stocked shops. Despite its proximity to rowdy Cabo San Lucas, quaint San Jose remains a peaceful place ideal for relaxing vacations. To find out how to plan a trip to Mexico, use our trip itinerary maker.
