We went exploring today! San Jose del Cabo is more beautiful than you could imagine.
It's lovely and the ocean views are just incredible, but there isn't the constant harassment that you encounter as a tourist in Cabo San Lucas. We are really enjoying it. The downtown area has a vibrant nightlife and great restaurants, as well as tons of artisan shops that sell all types of handmade, leather goods and jewelry.
We bought a "COCO FRIO" today at a roadside stand, and it was fantastic, nothing in a bottle could compare to an ice-cold coconut cut right in front of you! The bottled stuff pales in comparison, and the price is essentially the same.
Just look at these views! We stopped to take several pictures, all along the main highway that joins Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. The ocean is usually full of surfers and the waves are strong (in this area, it's not really safe for children or weak swimmers). There are several beaches that are safe, most notably, Medano Beach and Chileno Beach, both of which we will be visiting next week.
The air smells clean and fresh, the ocean breeze comes in all day long, and unlike Quintana Roo (which was also lovely, but full of bugs), there are no bug-bites or mosquitoes! It's not all perfect, though. There is a darker side to this region, which we will cover more tomorrow. So much to see and do and write about!
Just a middle-class dad and mom with three young kids, looking to escape the rat race. This is our journey!
