NileGuide Expert tip:
Parking is available.
Located in downtown San Jose del Cabo, Plaza Artesanos is home to over 75 vendors selling authentic Mexican jewelry, clothing, tote bags, rugs, and ceramics. This is one-stop shopping for tourists looking for high-quality, yet affordable souvenirs in a comfortable atmosphere without any hard sell tactics. There is plenty of gold and silver jewelry, hand-stitched dresses, hats, masks, religious iconography, tequila, and just about every kind of trinket imaginable. The plaza itself is clean and airy, and a great place to spend an afternoon, with benches available for shopping weary spouses, and artfully placed shade-giving umbrellas which provide respite from the Baja sun.
