Fodor's Expert Review Playa Hotelera
The long stretch of beach running in front of the hotels on the coast of San José del Cabo is called Playa Hotelera. This stretch of sand isn't swimmable, but once you step off the hotel property, it is public. You can always duck into one of the hotels for a snack or a sunset drink, or head across the street to Plaza Del Pescador for a meal at one of the restaurants. This beach often has locals with horses to rent for a beachside ride. At the west end of the beach you'll find shade palapas and children's play structures at Plazas Garuffi and Caracol, where there's also public parking. Amenities: Parking lot. Best for: walking.
