Special place with a more relaxed pace than its larger cousin, Cabo San Lucas. Terrific hospitality around every corner. Great place to wander

The main square of San Jose del Cabo has an excellent leather sandal shop, with an extensive selection of women and men's sandal styles. This is the main reason I go to this area.

Nice church near by. Look for the huge Mexican flag. Lots of shops and restaurants around the area. The square itself is a great place to just sit and people watch if there are no festivities going on.
