San Jose del Cabo is a calm place full of traditions, unlike the more active and modern Cabo San Lucas. It has been almost 300 years since San Jose del Cabo was founded as one of the first Spanish cities in Baja California. Back then, it was home of myths and legends full of pirate treasure hunts and great galleons.
Nowadays, in the city center, you can find the real beauty of Mexican towns set around the main square. Plaza Mijares is located in the historic district. It is a gorgeous traditional square with a kiosk, fountains, the City Hall building, and an open-air theater.
The San Jose del Cabo Church stands across from Plaza Mijares. This iconic building has been standing there since the 1940s. It was finally built after many mishaps affected or destroyed the previous churches all the way back to the first mission in 1730.
The little streets of the central area house dozens of art galleries, jewelry shops where exclusive designs can be found, handicraft stores, and upscale restaurants and bars.
The cobblestone-streets, beautiful church, traditional plaza, and wonderful murals of the City Hall telling its story, make San Jose del Cabo a magical place you must explore and discover!
