  1. 5.0 Cabo Adventures (28.8k reviews)
    - Loved this!
    Scuba & Snorkelling • Bike Tours • Private Tours • Dolphin & Whale Watching
    Cabo Adventures image
    We absolutely loved Roger, Ivan and Mickey on the whale watch photo safari tour. We saw so many whales so close but they truly made the experience. The surf was active and we always felt safe and were having the time of our lives! We also did the camel safari with Pepe the day prior and he was so charismatic and made the whole experience enjoyable. He was so funny and had us laughing all day! I recommend buying when you arrive because once you’re here, you can find much better deals than even the online discounts. Overall, still worth the money! See more..

    Points of Interest & Landmarks
    San Jose del Cabo main square image
    We were staying in a nearby resort and spent a couple days coming into San Jose. Both times visiting the square and Arts District. We had heard the Arts Walk on Thursday nights was something to see. We decided to do a visit prior to the actual Arts Walk - just to see what it might be all about. The area is full of shops with everything from cheap touristy stuff to beautiful clothing and jewelry stores and some very high end and interesting art. On Thursdays the streets are closed off to vehicles making the entire area pedestrian only. The shops spill out onto the street and the square is vendors and artists of all sorts, along with live entertainment Definitely a sight to see if you are ever in San Jose del Cabo. Strongly recommend reservations if you plan on a Thursday night dinner. See more..
