Art and wine at Art Walk, San Jose del Cabo

Sip wine, nibble complimentary tapas from wandering restaurateurs, admire artistic works at unique galleries and meet the artists.

Welcome to the Art Walk, 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.

Every Thursday evening between November and June, dozens of art galleries stay open until 9:00 pm so visitors and locals can enjoy this popular free cultural event.

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

Several also feature top Mexican works of art.

At the Cabo Art Walk, you can view everything from hand-painted pottery, Shona African sculptures, blown glass, contemporary oil paintings and handmade Chiapas textiles to jewelry.

You’ll even find 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 lining the Puerto Vallarta Malecon and some of the city’s best art galleries

Have you been recently? We're going to SJDC again in March 2021 and we're wondering if things are semi-normal again...

Hmmm... No, we understand things aren't really "semi-normal" in Cabo. In Los Cabos, hotel capacity is capped at 50%, and most of the good resorts require masks in elevators and indoor settings. Some ask you to wear masks when walking outside on hotel grounds too (e.g., from your room to the pool or beach). Restaurants and shops are quiet. All to be expected, considering what's going on in the world :-).

Having said that, it's possible to fly to Cabo without quarantining upon arrival. The beaches and hotel pools are open. And many restaurants are open for business too.

Be sure to check your home country's testing requirements for returning home :-).

Take care and stay safe!

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.
