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.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Sat): view the masterpieces at Casa Dahlia Gallery, look for gifts at Necri, and then browse the exhibits of Tanya Talamante Art School. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach), buy something for everyone on your list at Koral Center, then take in the exciting artwork at Frank Arnold Gallery, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia San Jose.

Cabo San Lucas

One of Mexico's premier vacation spots, Cabo San Lucas lures pleasure seekers with its trendy restaurant scene, raucous nightlife, and, of course, picture-perfect beaches.
Step out of the city life by going to Medano Beach and El Arco de Cabo San Lucas. For shopping fun, head to La Turquesa Jewelry and Art or Golden Cactus Gallery. Step out of Cabo San Lucas with an excursion to La Candelaria in Todos Santos--about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Playa del Amor, steep yourself in history at Church of Saint Luke, and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.
