San José del Cabo (San José) is next door to Cabo San Lucas and, like Cabo, was first visited by Europeans in 1542. Home to a few Indians for centuries, San Jose was hardly known to the world until recently. Development has moved east, from Cabo and into San Jose, resulting in a recent rapid growth of restaurants, typical US-type businesses and destination resort hotels with accompanying golf courses. With the diversification of lifestyle choices, real estate values have risen accordingly!
The same airport that serves San Jose serves Cabo San Lucas, although it is closer to San Jose. Coupled with Cabo’s growth, the town has become a major world-force in the recreation industry and locaton for retirement communities. When comparing San Jose to Cabo, there is a very noticeable difference in pace; San Jose is far more tranquil than Cabo yet offers all (or most) of what one expects in a seaside, oceanfront resort destination. Authentic in its Mexican atmosphere, there is a more modern flavor that what would be considered “traditional” in other Baja Sur locals.
Like its sister city, Cabo Sun Lucas, San Jose del Cabo has experienced an estimated 20% increase in both developed and undeveloped resort properties between 2004 and 2006. Entry-level prices for new housing and condominium developments are very upscale. As with Cabo and the entire local area, real estate experts predict that the development boom will last for at least the next 15 to 20 years
San Jose has two main areas – the downtown area; where there are shops, a main plaza, and cathedral; and, the hotel area that provides access to miles and miles of beaches and beautiful hotels and resorts. Just look over your shoulder and you are likely to see one of the many golf courses that are currently redefining the sport in Baja Sur. Added to fishing and diving, golfing and superior resorts have put San Jose on the map. San Jose has it all! With so much to enjoy in San Jose del Cabo and the close proximity to the USA, Baja California Sur is an excellent choice for either a vacation or retirement home.
