San Jose del Cabo ©
Underdeveloped and unexplored for most of its history, San Jose del Cabo emerged as a major tourist destination in the 1970s, when a growing number of sun-and-sand visitors discovered the area's appealing beaches.
Relax by the water at Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach) and Playa del Amor. Venture out of the city with trips to Cabo San Lucas (Swim with Dolphins, Fishing Charters & Tours, & more). There's much more to do: view the masterpieces at Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery, shop like a local with Mi Casa Azul Art Gallery, and explore the world behind art at Bill Olvera.
