Exploring San Jose del Cabo in Baja California SurSan José is the perfect place to start your exploration of Baja California Sur.
Here is one of the main airports of the peninsula, plenty of options in terms of accommodation, food and shopping in general.
The sand is golden and the water is crystalline, and although often the currents are too strong for either snorkeling or swimming, there are a couple of beautiful coves along the coastline such as Playa Chileno and Playa Santa Maria mostly protected from the winds.
Other than that, the coast from San José del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas, offers various spots for windsurfing or just to lay down sunbathing. Sadly, we have to admit that we found quite disappointing seeing how the unscrupulous resorts development has taken all the space, so that you will find yourself driving along a long line of huge (mainly non architecturally attractive) buildings destroying the panorama and covering almost all the view on the sea.
Nonetheless most snorkeling passionates (as we are) come here to visit the National Park of Cabo Pulmo. If this is also your plan, you must consider at least a 2 nights stay in San José as the trip there will take approximately 4 hours return on a normal car. This is because the road is only partially paved and although a 4x4 is not compulsory, certain parts are quite difficult to follow with a standard rental car.
