Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Across from the Cathedral and around the corner from City Hall, it’s a nice place to browse the shops, check out some art or grab a quick bite to eat. Extremely clean and safe area.

The main square in San Jose is quite large. Surrounded by small stores and gift shops. The main attraction is the Mission church of San Jose. The Sunday Mass was beautiful with the children singing. The church isn't really as big as it looks from the outside. It's more like a large chapel, very old and it is very peaceful to just sit and pray. The mass times on Sundays are 10AM in Spanish and an English mass at 12 noon. The priest was kind enough to read the gospel and speak in English at the 10AM mass.

Very peaceful & safe place to have a pleasant walk with your partner (or family). Very relaxing too! there are many good restaurants around that area aswell, overall our experience in San Jose del Cabo was good, We booked an american airlines flight from our city to get there during the weekend, aslo as many have recommended before we booked our transportation from the airport to our resort (and our way back too) with Cape Transfers (very easy and cheap to book on their website), after spending 2 days in San Jose del Cabo we spent another couple of days in Cabo San Lucas, but I have to admit the nightlife of Cabo San Lucas was not for us, we wanted something relaxing for these vacations so in our case we enjoyed more the calm and peace of mind that San Jose del Cabo gave us m

Great place to use as a ground zero for exploring the Art District of quiet San Jose de Cabo - not to be confused with the larger Los Cabos - 24 miles away.

Looking for a charming and relaxing place to have a lovely walk with your partner, friends or family while you are in San José del Cabo? Well, this is it!
San José main plaza is a relaxing place (and very safe) place to have an old mexican-town 🇲🇽 experience, we recommend you to go there after the sunset because that’s when people (mexican families and tourists alike) gather there to spend time with their love ones,

As for other San José del Cabo recommendations we will name a few:

🥇 RESORTS: Grand Faro & Cabo Azul are very elegant and big resorts that will definitely blow your mind! Now if you don’t wanna pay for something too expensive you can book with hyatt Ziva which is very close to both of them

🥇 TRANSPORTATION: First the one that you will need from the airport to your resort, for that we recommend you to book it online with a company called Cape Transfers, they have been around for more than 12
years and have an excellent reputation, they offer many types of vehicles depending on your needs, from economy shuttle to private Suburbans and even limos! In our case we booked a private suburban to our resort in San José del Cabo (they offer transportation from the airport to Cabo San Lucas too), we were 5 and only cost us 70 usd, if you need roundtrip they offer the option as well!

🥇 RESTAURANTS: There is a great restaurant located in San José del Cabo main plaza! It is called La Dolce, we had an excellent dinner there! (Its cousine was Italian though) and we know that if you visit Mexico you want to visit a REAL Mexican tacos 🌮 restaurant and for that you cannot go wrong with a famous restaurant called “las guacamayas” it’s a very famous place among Mexican locals and tourist and the most important thing: you will be able to experience what real Mexican cousine tasted like and believe us it is delicious!!

Well that’s it for the tips! Hope you have an excellent time in Cabo just as we did!!

Charming older town square in the more historical city of Baja California Sur. The mission area has several historical markers that tells the history of the village in the 18th Century. The mission building itself is a 20th Century construct; the 18th Century original was wooden and did not survive. The shops are pleasant; much is cheap souvenirs but there are a few jewelers and galleries with interesting or native merchandise.
