“Love the Plaza Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The old downtown area and the art district / plaza zone . Several nice hotels and restaurants and San Jose has recently redone the art district and looks great . Galleries and food all over ,easy walking on new wider sidewalks . Worth seeing for sure

“Nice town to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Short walk from Royal Solaris. It's a very quaint town with lots of tourists shops with a very old Church. Sometimes they have events there.

“So peaceful and a shady place to sit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The plaza is a gathering place for not only the locals but for tourist too. there a park benches that are shaded by beautiful full trees. if you sit long enough you will hear the hour bell off at the distance. there is a hammer that rings the bell, very old world. Try the paleteria shop on the east side of the street. The popcycles are cool and there are many different flavors.

“Old Town San Jose del Cabo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Old Town is much more enjoyable than going to "fancy" new establishments along the hotel area. Old Town offers more of what it used to be. "New Town" with it's strips and malls along the hotel area RUINS what you see in Mexico. Here you find Starbucks, Target -like stores...no fun. You can see this in the States. Really sorry to see this kind of so called "progress."
