San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo

was for hundreds of years, the only community at the tip of the Baja California Peninsula. With its natural fresh water oasis flowing into palm-lined lagoons at the oceans edge, the area supported Indian communities and hundreds of species of wildlife for thousands of years before colonization by the Spanish. During the pre-colonial period it was a watering and provisioning stop for Spanish galleons. San Jose del Cabo was finally settled in 1730 with a Jesuit mission and fort to help stabilize the region against pirates.

Cruises in San Jose del Cabo Nowadays the quaint town of San Jose del Cabo has an almost fantasy land quality about it. In city center one will find a gorgeous Spanish colonial styled city hall with murals of old Baja inside its corridors. Within, there’s a two-story courtyard shaded by a huge Mexican Laurel.

San Jose del Cabo exhibits the best of traditional Mexico with its blocks of unhurried streets and graceful tree covered sidewalks, its scores of shops, galleries, fine restaurants, boutiques and total absence of popular franchises such as McDonalds, Pizza Hut, and Hard Rock Café. It’s a place to explore, unwind, take-in and treasure.

‘Picturesque and historic San Jose del Cabo’.
San Jose del Cabo is more laid back and traditional than Cabo San Lucas. It is 18 miles east of San Lucas, and the town center is a few blocks away from the waterfront.

San Jose del Cabo is home to some of the finest hotels and resorts to be found anywhere including the One & Only Palmilla hotel located a couple of miles west of town. Here one can enjoy drinks overlooking the surf below, the Palmilla sportfishing fleet beyond and excellent beaches for swimming and snorkeling in between. Adjacent are famous golf courses and million dollar homes of the rich and famous, and the legendary surfing spot of Costa Azul.
