laidback living in San Jose del Cabo

A smart resort city on the southern tip of the sun-drenched Baja California peninsula, San Jose del Cabo serves up a less-frenzied pace than that found at lively Cabo San Lucas, just 20 miles along the coast. Here, the focus is on the city's colonial buildings, quiet shopping streets and sandy beaches, not to mention its marine park and bird sanctuary. With an array of attractions and amenities on offer, it's little wonder that San Jose del Cabo vacation rentals are a popular choice for families and friends hoping to enjoy a little laidback living in Mexico.

Between November and May, free art walks, often complete with complimentary tequila, take place every Thursday evening. For green-fingered guests, the Wirikuta Botanical Garden on the Puerto Los Cabos development is well worth a visit.
