San José del Cabo lies in the municipality of Los Cabos in the southwestern tip of Mexico’s Baja California region. The city immediately calls up images of the MTV-generation frolicking on the beach and raiding bars; but the area has more to offer than eternal sunshine and Señor Frog’s.
Los Cabos includes the infamous Cabo San Lucas and the tamer, more family-oriented San José del Cabo to the North. The 18-mile Tourist Corridor stretches across both cities and includes a plethora of golf courses, spas and a four-lane highway to easily access it all. The area truly began a metamorphosis from a backwater to a family friendly destination in the 1970s; tourist projects, condo developments and restoration of the city’s 18th century Spanish colonial influences have turned San José into a charming area that strongly contrasts its neighbor Cabo to the South.
From pirate ship sailings to glass blowing to volunteer opportunities, there are plenty of off-beach family activities for Cabo vacationers.
Cabo activity options—from whale watching and deep sea fishing, to horseback riding and desert treks and more—are sure to fit any family itinerary.
