San José del Cabo
San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo together with the neighboring city of Cabo San Lucas and the 20-mile long area that lies between them, called the Corridor, form the tourist destination known as Los Cabos.

San Jose del Cabo is the seat of the Los Cabos Municipality, it’s located at the end of the Baja California peninsula. San José was founded in 1730 when the San José del Cabo Añutí Mission was established. Los Cabos received more than 1.2 million tourists in 2011 and in the 2010 census the city had a total population of 69,788 inhabitants.

If Cabo San Lucas is a lively cosmopolitan tourist destination, San José del Cabo is relaxed, peaceful and colonial, it’s more what you have in mind when thinking of a typical Mexican town.
