Zadún, a Ritz Carlton Reserve Los Cabos Experience Review
San José del Cabo
The Los Cabos area consists of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. This hotel is in the Zona Hotelera just outside of San José. Its surrounding town is a vibrant mix of art, culture, and colonial-architecture.
Cabo San Lucas, San José’s sister city, is well-known for resort life and beaches. San José has all of that, but it has a stronger emphasis on culture. If you stroll around town, you’ll find plenty of gems. In its center, the central plaza is a lively communal space that regularly hosts musicians. Throughout the city, there are art galleries filled with crafts, jewelry, paintings, and sculptures. There is an art walk with wine tastings, gallery openings, and local artists to enjoy every Thursday from November to June. Visitors can also explore numerous historical buildings, an estuary, and a nearby organic farm with a restaurant. Venture slightly outside of town, and you’ll find surfing beaches and fishing spots.
Cabo typically has 350 sunny days annually so that you can enjoy these activities year-round.
