Best of Los Cabos
Plaza Teniente José Antonio Mijares: San José del Cabo town life centers around this cobblestone plaza in front of an elegant 1940 church built on the site of the original Jesuit mission.
Historic Art District: Historic adobe buildings in the San José Art District house a number of contemporary art galleries. More than a dozen galleries participate in Thursday evening Art Walks, which draw visitors and locals alike.
Estero San José: Spanish colonists were originally drawn to the tip of the Baja Peninsula by the promise of fresh water. Here, a large estuary, home to hundreds of species of birds, connects the Pacific Ocean to an underground river that flows out of the sierra.
Bahías Chileno and Santa María: Two of the Corridor’s most popular and accessible beaches offer safe swimming and good snorkeling.
Finisterra (Land’s End): Every tour boat in Cabo visits Finisterra and its 62-meter-high arch. This granite rock formation marks the end of the Baja Peninsula and the point where the Sea of Cortez merges with the Pacific Ocean.
Playa del Amor: This two-sided beach just outside the Cabo San Lucas harbor faces calm waters on its eastern Bahía San Lucas side and pounding surf on the western Pacific side.
