Even though the hotels and resorts of San Jose Del Cabo are some of the best in the entire region, the beaches in the immediate area are prone to treacherous rip-tides. Enjoy the views, but stay out of the water!!

We've stayed in this area for many years. The soft smooth beaches are really nice and calm, and the warm water is extremely inviting. There are a few vendors walking along trying to earn a living (and I've bought a few things from them), but...More
