A refreshing evening walking through the square. All the shops are open and welcoming you to spend your dollars. Outdoor restaurants and drinks; art galleries galore; tourist shops and more. A lovely evening with locals and tourists alike.

If your looking for a town full of nightlife, this is not it. The town is primarily fine arts and handmade trinkets. There is not much to do besides wander through art galleries, visit the local church, and stroll through the cobblestone streets.

Old world charm meets somewhat modern vendors. Nice visitors center that describes the surroundings, giant Mexican flag shows the pride of this typical old world main square, bring cash as some of the vendors don’t accept cards, fantastic paletas! (Popsicles made of pure fruit)

Visited the main square in San Jose del Cabo for a little shopping and site seeing. Lots of shops, restaurants and anchored by the mission church. Nice and quiet, pleasant experience.
