Nicely kept square. The shop owners all try to lure you in for your business - even the drug store. Beautiful church and gazebo in the square. This is second visit and usually parties or music going on. The police shop is here as well so uniforms are in full force. All in all authentic Mexican atmosphere and you do get a feel for Mexico.

San Jose de Cabo is a charming, easy paced Mexican pueblo situated 1/2 hour drive north from Cabo San Lucas. Small city centre area lets you walk hassle free anywhere/everywhere. Lots of charming colonial Mexico style architecture sites- mix between upscale bars/restaurants- a few tequila/cold beer joints, lots of very beautiful gallerys featuring all types of crafts, jewellery, pottery, glass, painting,sculpture and Mexican style family restaurants. Very safe! We happened to be there on the night Mexico was trying to break their record for the most telescopes focused on the moon... a real treat and highly recommended!

They have been working on building a plaza with all typical features. Too much cement though. On sunny hours it is shinny big time! Needs trees, shade, seating areas.

San Jose de Cabo is a charming, easy paced Mexican pueblo situated 1/2 hour drive north from Cabo San Lucas. Sma,l city centre area lets you walk hassle free anywhere/everywhere. Lots of charming colonial Mexico style architecture sites- mix between upscale bars/restaurants- a few tequila/cold beer joints (that are fun and cheap) to Mexican style family restaurants. Very safe! Merchants DO NOT hassle you to buy their t shirts or whatever. We had great time. Compared to Cabo San Lucas which is really a crazy version of a Puerto Vallarta wanna be Mexican - American suburb. If you enjoy San Jose- try to get a day and go to TodosSantos to experience Mexico pueblo as it was 60 years ago.

Beautiful area to walk through the streets, the building and the shops! Also enjoyed wandering through the town late at night and felt very safe. The Art district is filled with beautiful works
