Every Thurday during high season (they are talking about including Tuesday's too), which is from November to May-June, some streets in town are closed for traffic and the art galleries open up longer hours into the night, normally from 5PM to 9PM.
You can then go strolling along going into the galleries one by one bask in the laid-back Cabo atmosphere, have a complimentary Tequila, wine or cocktail, maybe some snacks, cheese or nuts, and learn a bit more about the works being exhibited and sold and as a plus, even meet the artists in person.
There's a wide variety of options, paintings, sculptures, ceramic, jewelry, glass, for all budgets and tastes, so take a look around and feast in the colors, forms and concepts of brilliant artistic minds.
It's a general feel that if you are in San José del Cabo, Art Walk is a MUST.
Tip: If you are planning to dine out in one of the restaurants of the area, make a reservation.
