Not so long ago, San José del Cabo was a quiet colonial town that lived in the shadow of social butterfly Cabo San Lucas. With a handful of shops and restaurants and a pretty missionary church, it was a place you might come to once on a vacation to Los Cabos, just to shake things up a bit. The irony is that back in the pre-colonial days, Spanish ships carrying silks and spices called on San José del Cabo to get water and provisions en route to the Far East. There wasn’t much in the Baja Peninsula beyond that.

These days, a different kind of traveler comes to this town, which has become the arts and shopping hub of Los Cabos. Spots like Galeria Corsica and Patricia Mendoza Art Gallery represent important artists from across the country. A number of shops stock Mexican folk art, from the kitsch (El Armario) to the serious (Galería Veryka). And then there are impressive jewelry designers like Eduardo Sanchez, who works in a 19th-century house.

And whether you smoke cigars or not, it’s worth stopping by J&J La Casa del Habano Los Cabos just to check out the pretty courtyard out back. And now that you can legally bring Cuban stogies into the United States, you might find the perfect gift for your friends back home.
