San Jose del Cabo Tours

San Jose del Cabo
The two towns that make up Los Cabos are fraternal—not identical—twins. They both have long, sandy beaches with crystalline turquoise waters, and they both offer a luxurious escape on the tip of the Baja Peninsula. But while Cabo San Lucas has a reputation for nonstop partying, San Jose del Cabo is content to drift at a slower pace.

The Basics

Located 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Cabo San Lucas on the road heading toward Los Barriles, San Jose del Cabo is a town of colonial architecture and lazy afternoons, but it’s anything but boring. Grab a snorkel and head north to Cabo Pulmo to explore Baja’s only coral reef or wax up your surfboard to ride the world-class waves. The fishing in San Jose del Cabo is legendary, and anglers celebrate their catch in colonial Plaza Mijares.

Bird-watchers and hikers can enjoy a stroll through Estero San Jose, where red-tailed hawks and white herons inhabit the oceanfront trails. Spend a morning relaxing on the sand at Playa Santa Maria and finish the evening with an old-town stroll past Iglesia San Jose. Walking and biking tours exploring the historical side of the town are also available.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • San Jose del Cabo is a good choice for those looking for a relaxing beach vacation with great restaurants and colonial architecture.
  • Sport fishing, golfing, and all sorts of water sports draw travelers to San Jose del Cabo.
  • The undertow makes some of the beaches unsuitable and possibly too dangerous for swimming.

How to Get There
San Jose del Cabo is located 15 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport; taxis and car rental options are readily available at the airport. Head south on Mexico 1D to reach the town, which is 7.6 miles (12 kilometers) from the airport. It’s also 18 miles (29 kilometers) east of Cabo San Lucas.

When to Get There
The most popular time to visit (and the most expensive) is from December until the Easter holiday; this period also includes spring break weeks. Whale watchers travel to San Jose del Cabo during these months to catch sight of the gray whales that migrate from Alaska. Prices drop during rainy season, which runs from July through October.

The Arch of Cabo San Lucas

The most photographed symbol of Los Cabos, the Arch of Cabo San Lucas (aka El Arco) is a rock formation protruding from the Sea of Cortez at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. It’s a popular site included on many sailing and glass-bottom boat tours.
