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.

  • It's sort of 2 rectangles at right angles. The first one has shops on both sides and an opening for a courtyard with government offices inside. If you go past this then look left to see the gazebo and...  more »
  • We visited here with the whole family. It was a pretty neat little square. A lot of benches to sit, enjoy a drink or a popsicle. There is a church on one end and the beginning of the tourist shops on ...  more »

  • We stopped by this Plaza as a result of coming here with our tour guide who gave us some historical information about how the Plaza's were used by the local community in the courting relationship of the teens and the accompanying family members. Our tour guide explained how the teens would walk in a circle around the gazebo. How a rose was passed and how the acceptance or denial of that flower was an acceptance or denial of the courting teen. we ventured around the plaza to view some of the other shops and then Departed the area happy that we were able to at least see and walk around this common area and hear its historical references.
  • There are a few shops here and all of them are relatively the same. They are selling t-shirts, shot glasses, keychains and other souvenirs. There are also a handful of jewelry places in addition to some popsicle shops and restaurants. The owners of the store were extremely friendly, however, they did their best to avoid being paid in pesos claiming they didn't have change or asking for smaller bills. With that being said, if you are looking for souvenirs, this is the place to come, but if you want to get any real shopping done, I would suggest you look elsewhere.
  • I do love this plaza. It has a lot of character and it is beautiful and very well maintained. The church is very pretty and it is and old Spanish type plaza. Around it there is a lot of places for merchants to display their goods. At night sometimes they have family activities and it is a safe place to have a nice ice cream. Recommend it
  • Took a taxi from our hotel Sercrets to this plaza. Taxi rides are pricey for being in Mexico. The Plaza was being upgraded but was still great to walk around. I enjoyed the Spanish style plaza and all tge stores. Spent way to much money here at all the unique stores. The shop owneras and their staff were very friendly and certainly appreciate tourist. Prices were high but this is a tourist area. Store owner will barter with you. Love to come back here when it is finished construction. Well worth the price of the taxi ride.
  • Nice combination of small mexican town with a touristic flair , but just the right amount . Nice to walk around , plenty of small shops and little restaurants . Way better than san lucas
