San Jose Del Cabo - Colonial Gem

This gorgeous getaway, with its palm-lined lagoons on the hem of the ocean, is full of the magic of Old Baja, where secret courtyards and unhurried days promise intrigue and romance. Fine hotels abound, including the elegant, world-renowned One&Only Palmilla.

THE AREA

An ancient culture of agile runners and tireless walkers called the Pericues had lived in the Los Cabos region long before tourism started. They were gatherers, fishermen and hunters who lived under palm trees, surrounded by birds in the San Jose del Cabo estuary. It is known that they believed in a higher being called Niparaja. In early 1530s, the first expeditions to explore this area were carried out by Hernan Cortés. Therefore, this small town holds adventurous stories since it also once was used as a pirate hideout. Years later, San Jose del Cabo turned into a charming colonial town thanks to commercial ships which had to stop for water and supplies while they were traveling from Asia to trade porcelain, mercury, silks and other products.
