While the zocalo of San Jose del Cabo is very clean and nice, I felt it was a bit too touristy with too many high end jewelry and trinket shops. Lacked authenticity.

After the walking around the main square it still has it very quaint atmosphere, with very friendly locals, great shops and restaurants. The Hurricane hasn`t changed my view San Jose del Cabo main square is still a lovely place to visit.

The square in San Jose del Cabo is very basic - not much to offer itself. The stores, galleries and restaurants around it in Old Town really are the thing to see. In season, on Thursday nights everything is open late with no traffic and is a good time to visit. The square hosts artists in booths offering their wares... More

Lots of great art work, the people are friendly and there are some great restaurants in the area. We did some shopping for Mexican glassware and ceramics, and even tried some of the food stalls on the square.

It is still how Baja used to be - hurry up and visit before it changes into another Cabos (no Starbucks here, yet). The square sits at the end of the main street. It's usually empty, unless there is a local fiesta. Visit the side streets, as they are homes to many interesting art galleries.

a huge plaza - very beautiful - the Mission is the high point! And if you are lucky there will be a good band playing at the La Osteria - you will hear them from the square!
