Cabo San Lucas shines like a diamond in the distance, but you were ready for a change of pace on this vacation. You’re 20 miles north in Mexico’s San Jose del Cabo, drenched in tranquility and watching easy waves lap at an uncrowded beachfront. This slice of sandy paradise is not only serene and sundrenched; it’s also minutes away from a charming downtown comprised of adobe buildings and small businesses that have claimed former residences as their own. In between excursions on the water, you’ll revel in the best that landlubbing has to offer in Baja, California. Walking tours of the Gallery District awaken your creative spirit, and a visit to the bird sanctuary makes your heart flutter with the speed of hummingbird wings. You’ll stay at one of the many San Jose del Cabo hotels on the beach, because you want to wake up to sea views and easy breezes. You’re wandering wisely, after all.
Calm waters make San Jose del Cabo the perfect place to earn your stipes in water sports. Snorkeling, kayaking, and jet skiing are just a few of the ways to play near the beach. Sports fishing is another popular activity; even if you’re not an experienced angler, chartering a boat will lead to adventure. Throw your line in the water and see what you reel in. After a day of exploration, visit a beach-adjacent spa to unwind and recharge. Trust us, your muscles will thank you and a brown sugar exfoliation treatment will leave your skin feeling sweet as can be.
