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 find plenty of places to visit near San Jose del Cabo: Cabo San Lucas (Shark Diving, La Turquesa Jewelry and Art, & more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Chileno Beach, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, shop like a local with Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery, and take in the exciting artwork at Movimiento Art Gallery.
