San José del Cabo, Mexico: Peaceful Beaches and Vibrant Art Scene
Los Cabos—which in Spanish means "the capes”—is the name used to refer collectively to the two Mexican towns at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Cabo San Lucas is often thought of as the wilder and more widely known of the two. But its sister city, San José del Cabo, is both larger and more well-preserved, with Spanish colonial architecture sandwiched between ocean dunes and the Sierra de la Laguna mountains.
Secluded nature reserves abound in San José del Cabo—Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park shelters one of North America's only hard-coral reefs right beside Bahia Los Frailes, a bay filled with a colony of barking sea lions. Egrets, brown pelicans, and hundreds of rare and exotic waterfowl make their homes at the estuary's bird sanctuary on the peninsula’s southern tip. Nearby, La Playita's beach has both a swimming area and a separate spot to watch fishers bring in the day’s catch.
About a mile from San José del Cabo's beaches, you’ll find colorful architecture and ornate churches in the historic downtown area, or zocalo, which harks back to the city's early days as a missionary town. Jacaranda trees, garden courtyards, and trickling fountains line the sidewalks. Just a short walk from the town square is San José del Cabo's arts district, where locals hawk fresh produce and handcrafted jewelry amid the area’s folk art and religious sculptures.
