San José del Cabo
San José del Cabo is a highly successful composite of charmingly authentic village, soporific beach and top-end accommodation precinct where hospitality staff consider themselves abject failures if you so much as lift a finger to do something yourself.
This is a place that redefines the word 'active' to mean making an effort to do as little as possible. But if you're feeling energetic, you can still drop some fish a line, surf a piece of fibreglass into a foaming sunset, or wander around adobe streets in a happy state of tropical disorientation.
