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.
Visit Medano Beach and Playa del Amor for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose del Cabo: Cabo San Lucas (Swim with Dolphins, Fishing Charters & Tours, & more). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach), take in the exciting artwork at Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery, and get a taste of the local shopping with Movimiento Art Gallery.
