If you want to be near the night life then being in Cabo is the better choice. San Jose is lovely, and charming, but much more quiet and laid back. Cabo is where folks go to hit the clubs and play. The PB Los Cabos is a great location, as you can walk to town. It is a lovely property. You will find info on taxi's and local bus transportation on some of the threads here. We walk to town or rent a car for side trips, so haven't used the bus yet...............hope your trip will be super!
