Cabo Azul Resort offers a departure from Los Cabos' typical party scene, with a location outside the more authentic and subdued San Jose del Cabo, and a laid-back, welcoming atmosphere. Although a taxi or bus is necessary to visit San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas, some may appreciate the quieter atmosphere. The 144 villa-style rooms come with modern amenities, such as stainless steel kitchen appliances and flat-screen TVs, as well as casually elegant decor (especially nice touches include airy linens draped over the bed headboards, wooden lanterns, and bamboo-covered ceilings). As for the rest of the resort, it's impressive from all angles as well, featuring a three-level infinity pool, quaint outdoor fire pits, and tasty restaurants.
On a somewhat busy road dotted with hotels, not much is within walking distance except for some low-key attractions, like the estuary
On the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, the immediate area doesn't offer too much within walking distance -- the road it's located on is mostly dotted with various hotels. The area, much more low-key than downtown Cabo San Lucas or even downtown San Jose del Cabo, offers a more relaxed pace. For example, one of the closest attractions within walking distance is the San Jose Estuary, just a 10-minute walk east, which is a great spot for kayaking, walking, and bird watching.
Close to the party-hearty area of Cabos San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is the quainter, historic answer to a beach vacation in Los Cabos. The waters are rough and there's less of a nightlife, but the area retains its Mexican flair, and features numerous restaurants and galleries. It is also close to the airport.
