Luxury Homes for Sale in San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo showcases the artistic side of Los Cabos municipality in Baja California Sur, Mexico.

It has a rich history dating back to the early 1530s when Hernan Cortés first explored the area. Over the years, it transformed into a charming colonial town, thanks to commercial ships stopping for water and supplies on their journeys from Asia to trade porcelain, mercury, silks, and other goods. This heritage is evident in the town’s central district, which boasts 19th-century houses converted into restaurants, art galleries, and souvenir shops. Alongside these historic structures are move-in-ready single-family homes with stunning architecture, ocean-view residences, and sophisticated condos. The town shines brightly on its own, offering a relaxed and authentic Mexican experience.

HISTORIC DOWNTOWN PLAZA: San Jose del Cabo’s downtown central plaza has retained its charming historic character. Around 1730, the Mission of San Jose del Cabo, “Añuití,” along with a “Plaza,” was founded on Zaragoza Street, which you can still visit. You will also see cobblestone streets, adobe houses, jacaranda trees, and the iconic Catedral de San Jose, the area’s main Catholic church. Drop by the Spanish colonial-styled city hall to see murals of old Baja inside its corridors or visit the Casa de Cultura, a museum housed in a 19th-century building.

ARTS DISTRICT: San Jose del Cabo’s Art District showcases works from all over the world. You’ll find high-end paintings and sculptures from traditional Mexican, contemporary Mexican, and international artisans. Discover more and join The San Jose del Cabo Art Walk, held every Thursday night, allowing tourists and locals to wander the colorful streets and explore showrooms late into the night. With wine tastings, artists in attendance, and gallery openings, this event provides a vibrant cultural experience that enriches the community.

COASTAL GEMS: San Jose del Cabo offers pristine swimmable beaches, including Costa Azul, a popular surf hangout with inviting waves. Playa Acapulquito offers good drinks and music at its beach club, while Playa Palmilla and Playa Chileno are perfect for snorkeling adventures. The picturesque world-class marina, facing the Sea of Cortez, is home to famous surf spots and abundant wildlife, including marine birds, gray whales, and turtle hatchlings. You’ll have endless opportunities for coastal exploration and outdoor recreation.
