Attractions & Sites
San Jose del Cabo and San Jose Mission
Walking along the lovely boulevards and plazas you will discover colonial style buildings and beautiful gardens. Artists thrive here in this very friendly town. Visitors can ride mules or bicycles to visit the church of the San Jose Mission founded in 1730 by the Jesuits Jose de Echeverria and Nicolas Tamaral. Above the church entrance, built in 1940, is a scene of the martyrdom of Father Tamaral when he was killed by the Pericu Indians.
Museo de las Californias
This small museum offers a collection of artifacts, maps, tools, photographs and journals that date back to the expeditions of Cortez in the 1500’s. This museum is one of the first to show a collection whose main purpose is designed to preserve the history of this area.
Pasado Marina de Museo
The walls are covered with the works of taxidermists while a variety of sharks and tuna hang from the ceiling. Even if you’re not a fisherman this museum presents interesting views of local species that you may have never seen before.
Estuary of San Jose
This freshwater lagoon is now a game reserve with nearly 200 bird species. Once roamed by pirates in search of fresh water, you can rent kayaks to explore the lagoon and its feathered friends. Who knows, you might stumble across a lost treasure.
The Old Lighthouse at Cabo Falso
Tumbledown building that recalls the port’s past. It is built on small hill overlooking part of the bay and its quays. It can only be accessed on horseback or all-terrain vehicles which can be rented.
A boat ride will take you to these enormous blocks of rock, located at the junction between the Pacific and the Sea of Cortes. In addition to the spectacular landscape, it is quite common to see groups of sea lions and seals on the seashore, basking in the sun.
The Cabo San Lucas Marina
A rectangular, protective dike located between Medano Beach and the peninsula has 288 docks where you can rent boats for fishing or sailing.
Finally, you can’t leave without seeing the wonderful, unusually shaped Punta Balandra, one of Los Cabos’ distinctive landmarks.
