Shopping around Los Cabos is a fun and relaxing way to spend an afternoon or morning. In Cabo San Lucas, shopping starts at the sophisticated Plaza Puerto Paraíso, boasting the latest designer fashions, fine art galleries, and exclusive boutiques. Only two blocks from Casa Dorada Los Cabos, Puerto Paraíso combines indoor shopping, the exclusive Luxury Avenue, and entertainment with cascading waterfalls and harbor-view areas for strolling. Duty-free bargains and luxury boutiques can also be found nearby, while the resort’s shopping arcade is just steps away.
San Jose del Cabo
Cabo’s sister city, colonial San Jose del Cabo, is twenty miles northeast and seven miles from the international airport. Definitely worth a daytrip, the town’s focal point is its historic center around the main square and church. Known for its galleries and boutiques, San Jose offers an entirely different vacation experience. Unlike Cabo, hilly side streets, gracious old homes, and restored adobe haciendas give San Jose the feel of Old Mexico.
Just about an hour’s drive north of Cabo San Lucas, along the picturesque Highway 19, lies a gem of a town - Todos Santos. Hidden within the classic Spanish-style architecture and adobe brick buildings are countless art galleries and trinket stores just around the corner from the legendary Hotel California. Called by many the Baja Art Colony, Todos Santos is a tranquil town full of mystique and magic, where time takes on an ethereal quality.
