Plaza Mijares, San Jose del Cabo

Stroll Plaza Mijares, a laidback plaza and a gathering spot for locals. This Spanish-style square is shaded by old trees and lined with colonial-era buildings. Admire the stately church building and town hall, or visit some of the art shops and galleries flanking the plaza. Hang out at one of the charming restaurants, view the picturesque gazebo in the middle of the square, or sit back and take in the tranquil atmosphere.

  • Came here on a Thursday night when they had the art walk going on. The plaza gets filled With multiple food vendors selling snacks. Great to grab a fresh churro, but the construction of the plaza took away from the ambience and made things a bit crowded.
  • This is a nice place to walk around and check out the shops. There was a guy here selling decorated swordfish bills, which is the only time I saw those in Cabo. Live music sometimes and lots of people enjoying the evening.
  • Old town San Jose del Cabo is so much more of what Baja should be than Cabo San Lucas. Art walks, restaurants, shopping and ambience. Just a short cab ride from the hotel zone.
  • Decent plaza, but the Krystal Grand put up job postings on the pavilion (which in itself is beautiful). It looks crappy. No interesting job postings. Shame on you, Krystal Grand, and shame on you, municipal administration, for allowing this to happen.
  • Great place in San Jose del Cabo. This is a historical down street. Too much to view...

Best things to do in San Jose del Cabo

Where to stay in San Jose del Cabo

If you're after sun, sand, and surf, head straight for Zona Hotelera, the shorefront district brimming with large hotels, expansive beach resorts, and the occasional humble "posada" (inn). For a more genuine atmosphere and proximity to the town's charming historical center, as well as views over the nearby estuary, look for a boutique hotel or posada within the town itself, just back from the coast. If you want to split the difference, check out the selection of private rentals lying between the beach and the township.
