The town area of San Jose del Cabo is a small historic square where there is a stately old church from the early 1700s and a bunch of shops. Well worth the walk to get some local flavor. Cab ride from the resorts about 5-10 USD.

We stayed a block away, and walked here everyday....there is a stunning cathedral at the other end of this square.....small quaint cafes around the edge of the square.

Great picture taking arena....feel so good and perfectly... More

A very pleasant and very Mexican little town. Quite a few shops to look at and plenty of restaurants to choose from.

Easy shopping and dining much more limited than in Cabo. We enjoyed walking but a little bit more expensive. Everyone very nice and willing to bargain.

My first trip to cabo San Lucas, I skipped San Jose. My second trip, I discovered thar San Jose is the better part of Cabo. The town square is cleaner, better and nicer shops, and more cultural experiences and less junk. It is clear that the upper class leaves cabo San Lucas to the tourists, because this town is the...

San Jose Del Cabo has all the best shops, restaurants, sites and a beautiful Catholic church. We enjoy the square every time we visit, something for all.

It's fun to wander around San Jose del Cabo's main square. It's surrounded with shops and art galleries. Be sure to get a palleta (Mexican popsicle). There are a large variety of flavors and they're a great way to cool off after wandering around.
