In San Jose del Cabo, within walking distance of historical sites
Alegranza does not have direct access to the beach, which is about a 15-minute walk away. It is not far from the center of town, which puts guests within walking distance of restaurants, art galleries, and historic sites (like 18th-century churches).
Far from the party-hearty area of Cabos San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is the more quaint, historic answer to a beach vacation in Los Cabos. The waters are rough and there is less of a nightlife, but the area retains it's Mexican flair and features numerous restaurants and galleries. It is also close to the airport.
Far removed from the party atmosphere of Cabos San Lucas, this upscale property is comprised of 95 residences on beautifully landscaped grounds that include pools, putting greens, fire pits, a fitness center, tennis court, and restaurant. Units are spacious, with large living rooms, full kitchens, and private yards or patios. Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias is part-owner of this quiet and well-kept property, mostly frequented by couples and families on long vacations. It is a 15-minute hike from the beach, which has rougher waves than the southern shores. Families hoping to be near calmer waters may consider Villa la Estancia, which also offers large rooms and is right on tranquil Medano Beach.
