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.
Take a break from the city and head to Cuadra San Francisco and Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach). Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery and Movimiento Art Gallery. Step out of San Jose del Cabo to go to Cabo Pulmo and see Cabo Pulmo Marine Preserve, which is approximately 1h 40 min away. The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia San Jose, stop by Eduardo Sanchez Jewelry, tour the pleasant surroundings at San Jose's Estuary and Bird Sanctuary, and take in the exciting artwork at Sillvermoon Gallery.
