Many shops (most of which sell the same handicrafts) and places to eat. Nice to get out of the resort and walk around - and see a bit of culture. Once was enough for us, but recommended just the same.

Currently (July 2017) under redevelopment so all shuttered off. Should be good by Summer 2018. Artists impression picture looks impressive. Part of the redevelopment of downtown San Jose. Artists Walk largely unaffected.

Highly enjoyed brief shopping excursion on our own to the square. Even though almost every store seemed to be catered to tourists, it somehow felt authentic. The main square by the church is undergoing a lot of construction, as is one of the main streets...More

The whole street was dug up so it was difficult to walk around and see things. There were plywood walls up and you couldn't see everything. I'm sure it will be nice when it's done, we just picked an unfortunate time to visit.

We visited the main square several times during our stay and took advantage of local restaurants, breweries and shops. We were a little disappointed as downtown is pretty torn up for construction, but that will be good for the city and it was still awesome!...More

Los Cobos is a place where you find a lot of bars, restaurants and live music. You can take a taxi boat to go to nice small beaches and to the famous Arch.

Construction around main square takes away the enjoyment of this otherwise beautiful place. Shops and cars are too close, and many locals will offer you better deals on packages or tours that may be deceptive. Many people are connected with time share sales and want...More

This area is a very old part of San Jose, with cobblestone streets, old churches and buildings, restaurants and shops. But be very wary on buying anything here. These stores are trying to take advantage of the tourists only coming to these kind of shops....More

Away from the high rise hotel yet close to our hotel, this was a beautiful & true feeling of Mexico. We see the beautiful cathedral next to the square and hear the bells was so comforting & welcoming. We strolled and did some shopping in...More

Check it out, very nice gallaries and stores. But beware of a store called: Tequila and Art...they will try and pull a bait and switch on your purchase...i.e. you agree on a price and when you go pay the triple it....not to mention half the...More

You can use US dollars and your visa but you'll pay a bit more. Most shops barter on their own conversion and prefer US dollars. But you'll get better deals with peso.

Absolutely. It's the Routa del Desierto. It's opposite the Mega Mall. It will take you directly to where the Marina is and where the tours begin. It's about 30 to 45 minutes in air conditioned comfort. Cost is $ 2 us

We booked through Costco . 2 people including airfare 4,500.00 - 3,500.00. Just depends on which hotel you pick. And of course time of year.
