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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach) and Bay of Cabo San Lucas. Visit Playa Los Cerritos and Santa Maria Beach for some beach relaxation. When in San Jose del Cabo, make a side trip to see Shark Diving in Cabo San Lucas, approximately 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia San Jose, fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and get the adrenaline pumping with an extreme tour.

To plan San Jose del Cabo vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
