A few months ago we traveled to San Jose del Cabo. Not to be confused with Cabo San Lucas. These are sister towns/cities in the southernmost tip of Baja California. This is the second time we have been there. Once when we first married, 25 years ago and last year for my birthday. The first time we went Cabo San Lucas was still a growing resort area. There was a few hotels in view of the Arch. We were stunned at the extreme growth and over commercialization of the area…25 years later. Come in San Jose del Cabo. We had researched which area we wanted to stay in quite a bit as we wanted some rest and relaxation. We found a beautiful secluded resort, but what was even more beautiful was the quaint town of San Jose. I cannot wait to return. Not only was the town gorgeous, but it’s bursting with art galleries, amazing eateries and unique cocktail bars.
La Revolucion Comedor- By far, one of the most amazing meals I’ve had EVER. A superb Farm to table experience from the cocktails to the dessert. Locally grown vegetables and meats and the freshest seafood from the Sea of Cortez.
One of the other mini adventures we had was a day trip to Todos Santos where the rumor is that the iconic song “Hotel California” by the Eagles was inspired by. The Mission, Mision de Todos Santos or Santa Rosa de las Palmas. It was founded in 1733 and later, after 1748, referred to a Nuestra Señora de Pilar de la Paz. The front of the Mission is majestic…
The Iconic Hotel California…
“Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face.
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here” -Hotel California, Eagles
This is a genuinely picturesque part of Mexico. Filled with historic romance and modernity all at the same time. We loved it so much we are returning next year! Until then, adios!
