Our good friends Bill & Erin invited us down to San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, to visit them for a week in December. Normally when I hear Cabo, Mexico, I think of drunken spring-breakers partying on the beach getting sunburns and alcohol poisoning...not my kind of vacation. But Bill explained that the town they live in, San Jose del Cabo, is nothing like its neighbor, Cabo San Lucas.

San José del Cabo is relaxed, peaceful and colonial, and it's more what you have in mind when thinking of a typical Mexican town. The beautiful historic downtown area has colonial buildings and a very relaxed vibe.
A good place to start your tour is in the heart of San José del Cabo, at the charming main square, called Mijares Plaza, the tree-filled central square with its attractive bandstand and outdoor amphitheater where a variety of cultural events are staged. There is no fixed event calendar, but there is always something to enjoy, if not just an ice-cream while you relax on a bench.
This is also the center of all the action in San José del Cabo, on the west side is Iglesia San José (Saint Joseph Church) that stands over the place where the original mission was established. You'll find restaurants, art galleries, jewelry stores and shops along Zaragoza, Oregon, Hidalgo streets and Boulevard Mijares. (source)
