Welcome to the Art Walk in San Jose del Cabo!

It’s a delightful evening of strolling the historic art district in this Mexican town in the Baja Peninsula – and one of the best free things to do in Los Cabos.

Many of the galleries are high-end fine art establishments.

Several also feature top Mexican works of art.

You can view everything from hand-painted pottery, Shona African sculptures, blown glass, contemporary oil paintings and handmade Chiapas textiles to jewelry and sculptures made from 25 million-year-old amber.

The Los Cabos Art Walk is loads of fun – see TripAdvisor reviews. (It’s similar to the free Art Walk in Puerto Vallarta, which is held on Wednesday evenings in winter, which we’ve also enjoyed.)

Each year when we visit Los Cabos for sun-and-sand family reunions, we make a point of hitting the San Jose Del Cabo Art Walk.

PV’s arts scene is pretty cool: Check out the thought-provoking sculptures on the Puerto Vallarta Malecon and some of the city’s best art galleries

Some Cabo art galleries we like:

Casa Dahlia | Abstract landscapes, Naïve folk art, paintings and sculptures from some of Baja’s best contemporary artists

Galeria Corsica | Museum-quality art, including sculptures of the chubby little Timoteo figure we first saw in PV on its Art Walk

Frank Arnold Gallery | Dramatic oil paintings and cast bronze sculptures by Frank Arnold

Galeria de Ida Victoria | Paintings, sculptures, prints and photography by established and emerging contemporary artists from Mexico and around the world

Los Cabos Amber Art Gallery and Fine Art Annex | Amber jewelry, rare fossil insects, amber perfume bottles and more

Muvezi Gallery | Stone sculptures by Shona artists from Zimbabwe

Patricia Mendoza Art Gallery | Contemportary art by some of Mexico’s top artists

Amazing! My family and I are heading there shortly. I've been to the art walk and LOVED it but must have missed the wine. Which galleries was it available at? I am a huge wine enthusiast and have found that is the one thing Mexico has always been lacking for me. Usually stuck with cervesa when there but much prefer wine. Thanks in advance!

You have to wander into the galleries. Often you'll see a tray at the reception desk, with little glasses of wine. Sometimes they run out toward the end of the evening :-). Most galleries have a little something to sip.

That looks so cool! Having gone to art school, I'm always in search of galleries to visit when I'm in a new city!

Then you'll particularly love the Art Walk. Puerto Vallarta in Mexico also has a great Art Walk.

Sounds like a fun night out! We did a few of these when we were living in Nashville, but our art walks here in Asia have definitely been more of the "street art" variety (and sadly not involved any wine at all)! We are considering visiting Mexico in the near future, so the prospect of getting to be in cities with such a vibrant artistic community is definitely very encouraging!

Besides making for a really fun evening, it is also great that the art walk brings so many people to downtown San Jose, helping the restaurateurs and other merchants.
