The plaza is a must do. The development of the area has exploded in the last couple of years, there are dozens of new shops and restaurants. The Thursday night art walk is definitely something to do but get there early parking is a nightmare. There were tons of vendors with handmade items along with the art and it was... More

The Plaza can be very busy or almost dead, but Art Walk nights and weekends are interesting times to stroll through. Some of the restaurants to the south offer good value, but it's just as much fun to get a corn cob on a stick or a bag of fresh churros from a street vendor.

It is not as much fun as the beach. Snorkeling and surfing are way more fun. However, you need to go here and see first hand how government involvement ruins everything. The locals are nice. Lots of interesting stores.

A great location to hang out, eat or shop. It is in the center of town and often has the art walk and other crafts for sale.

Of course the shop keepers beg you to come in with their snappy one liners, just the way it is. Shops were ok but enjoyed Thursday night artists that were displaying their works.

This quiet part of the peninsula is a must for all travelers seeking peace and relaxation. It has plenty of stores to visit along with restaurants, bars, gallerias and plenty of cultural activities almost every day of the week.

At first look Plaza Mijares looks like some fountains added to the edge of the city's main square. When you get closer to it you'll see the busts of seven people who were very instrumental in the establishment of this part of Baja California. The plaques are in Spanish, of course, but you can get the idea of their importance... More

Every time there is a new mayor in SJC the plaza gets a face lift, nobody seems to get it right. I have personally seen the fountain change 4 times already! now they want to change it again. Also the last time they took out the trees to make room for more concerts, now they are asking people to donate... More
