San Jose Del Cabo, 33km east of Cabo San Lucas, is older and more traditional than Cabo San Lucas. It features a handsome Municipal Palace, charming courtyard restaurants, shops, boutiques, and a lovely tropical estuary. The atmosphere here is subdued compared with the more rowdy town of Cabo San Lucas.
Founded in 1730 as a mission, San Jose Del Cabo grew into an agricultural center and small port. Few traces remain of its earliest years, although some older buildings date back to 1880s. The old plaza and the Paseo Mijares, which now leads to a modern hotel zone about 1 km seaward, are still intact, and there's a small local museum in the Casa de la Cultura. Of historical interest is the San José Mission founded in 1730 by the Jesuits José de Echeverría and Nicolás Tamaral. Above the church entrance, built in 1940, is a scene of the martyrdom of Father Tamaral when he was killed by the Pericúe Indians.
The numerous shops and interesting restaurants that line the streets and shady courtyards offer a variety of cuisines. The Gordo Bank, directly off the beach of San Jose del Cabo, are world-known fishing grounds. San Jose del Cabo is often the choice of anglers who go to Baja looking for the best fishing on the cape.
We have two fleets in San Jose del Cabo to choose from. Either Abaroa or La Leona Sportfishing fleet will provide you with an excellent fishing experience.
