  • Beautiful old church where locals attend, get married at and sadly, funerals as well. The square and avenue leading up to it is lined with shops and restaurants that are affordable in price.  more »
  • This is a typical Mexican town square. VERY cute, well decorated and with shopping. The church there is vey very small, so not much to see inside, but definitely go to the town square.  more »

  • Plaza Mijares is the centre of activity in the town of San Jose del Cabo. Our hotel Royal Solaris was about 30 minutes walk from the plaza. The plaza is also close to the municipal. The plaza is surrounded by the Catholic Church on one side and shops and restaurants along the three other sides. There always people in the plaza but it becomes very lively on Thursdays for the Art Walk. Artists bring their work to sell. It is a very interesting show of art and you can easily spend hours exploring work displayed in the various stalls Food and drinks are available. And there is an ice cream shop as well.
  • Fun spot. The whole town seems to gather here. Kids on roller skates, dancing, dogs doing tricks. Food carts, etc. Thursday art Walk is great. Come on a Sunday afternoon like a local, grab a bench and watch the city walk by.
  • Art walk on Thursdays 5pm-9pm. Great way to support the locals. Very talented people!!! Nice 1.5 mile walk from the Holiday Inn Los Cabos All Inclusive.
  • Beautiful town center with all the colorful local shops you could ask for. There seem to be lots of upscale shops and restaurants that have opened recently. It was a nice place to walk around when we needed to get out from our resort. We found cheap gifts for the kids and sampled some mescal which was delicious.
  • Nice place. Not a lot to do. Saw the church walked around for the art walk did some shopping and sat at Molly's for drinks.
