San Jose del Cabo, Mexico
San Jose del Cabo is a friendly, down-to-earth, city located close to the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Located on the shores of the Sea of Cortez, situated 27km east of the popular resort of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is known to be the quiet and peaceful, mild sister.
There are many restaurants, boutiques are galleries and shops in the very tourist orientated central downtown area. Despite this the hustle and bustle of San Jose does not interfere with the tranquil feeling that you have here.
18th century Spanish colonial architecture, the ever present stature of the beautiful church and the friendly family atmosphere that radiates around the town square attributes to the words of quaint, mellow or charming that many tourists use to describe San Jose del Carbo.
