If you are looking for a quieter, less touristy experience in Cabo, San Jose del Cabo is the perfect place to explore. With open green spaces and a quaint old town, San Jose del Cabo is a great place to relax.

One of the most iconic things to see in San Jose del Cabo is the Mission of San Jose. Built in 1730, this is the southernmost of the Jesuit missions on the Baja California peninsula.

2. The Estuary

The Estuary is a hidden gem and one of the most beautiful places in San Jose del Cabo. A state ecological reserve that covers 50 hectares, it merges fresh river water with salty ocean waters in a habitat where endemic flora and fauna thrive.

Its inhabitants, as well as a local environmental group, have been very proactive in protecting the Estuary and its wildlife. They’re working with local community members to keep the area clean and healthy as it has been impacted by pollution and predatory animals over time.

There are a variety of activities to enjoy here, including kayaking. Bird-watching tours are available, and it’s possible to spot Belding’s yellowthroat, least bell’s vireo, gray thrasher, Xantus’s hummingbird, Virginia rail, white-faced and white ibis, yellow-crowned and black-crowned night herons, and many more.

3. The Main Square

The charming main square, surrounded by century-old Indian laurel trees, is the hub of San Jose del Cabo. The tree-filled plaza is shaded by a bandstand and an attractive outdoor amphitheater, where a variety of cultural events are held.

During the day, you can explore the historic downtown area and admire its charming colonial buildings, many of which boast romantic courtyards. The historic center is also home to many art galleries and boutiques that sell Mexican traditional art and local creations.

One of the most popular places to shop for traditional art is Plaza Artesanos, which has over 75 vendors selling bags, blankets and ceramics from some of the country’s best artisans. It’s a great place to pick up a souvenir for friends and family back home.

Another excellent place to shop for a unique souvenir is the Gallery District in downtown San Jose del Cabo. The streets of the district come alive with colorful flags and an abundance of art splashed on every wall.

4. The Gallery District

The Gallery District is a must-visit area for art lovers and locals alike. Spread across a handful of cobblestone streets, this area showcases the work of artists from both Baja and beyond.

The best way to get a feel for the city’s vibrant artistic charm is to explore it during one of the many events held throughout the year. Every Thursday night from November to June, dozens of galleries stay open later than usual for the San Jose del Cabo Art Walk.

This weekly evening event is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in San Jose del Cabo’s creative vibe and experience a range of art, culture, and food experiences. The streets are closed off, and you can browse paintings, sculptures, jewellery, and more from a variety of local creatives.

The Gallery District is an easy destination to navigate, and its historic center can be easily reached on foot from downtown hotels. It’s also home to a number of artisanal products, designers like Hilaria, boutiques, and restaurants.
