Whether you’re on your honeymoon, traveling with friends, or seeing the world with your family, there’s always time for shopping while on vacation. That sentiment holds just as true when you’re on vacation in Los Cabos. Shopping opportunities are abundant in Los Cabos, and they can be found from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo.
Although there are plenty of activities to keep you busy during your stay in Cabo San Lucas, shopping gives you another avenue to explore the culture and bring a little of it back home with you. What makes it even better? When you rent a house or condo from Sea Side Reservations, you’ll have plenty of room to store your purchased goods!
Regardless of whether you are buying a keepsake for yourself or looking for the perfect souvenir or gift for someone special, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the shopping that Los Cabos has to offer. Shopping in Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo is a great low-key activity that you’ll want to work into your vacation itinerary. Both locations have shopping destinations that range from small shops and boutiques to larger shopping centers; however, the Cabo San Lucas shopping experience may differ some from San Jose del Cabo.
Cabo San Lucas is a very popular vacation spot and also an anchor port for cruise ships full of tourists in search of souvenirs from their trips to Cabo. To meet that demand, you’ll find plenty of tourist paraphernalia, such as T-shirts, coffee mugs, and caps that represent Mexico, Los Cabos, or Cabo San Lucas. This type of shopping can be fun, but it isn’t the only type of shopping in Cabo San Lucas.
The town also offers shopping malls, some of which carry higher-end merchandise and designer brands. Shopping malls in Cabo carry items such as clothing, fragrances, and cosmetics. There’s even a complex in downtown Cabo that also houses a movie theater, restaurants, and a bowling alley.
Some standouts for picking up something uniquely Cabo include Arte de Origen, offering handmade Latin American and Mexican fine art, and the Baja Blown Glass Factory in San Jose, which carries on the tradition of producing beautiful glass bowls, goblets, and more. There are also live demonstrations of this Mexican art form.
There’s no need for a car when you’re shopping in Cabo San Lucas. If you’re renting one of our vacation properties in town, you can easily walk to your shopping destination; however, if you’re planning a big day of shopping, then transportation in the form of a car, bus, or taxi can be useful in bringing bags back to your condo.
Travel down to San Jose del Cabo for another Los Cabos shopping experience. San Jose del Cabo is a much quieter town than Cabo San Lucas. This is reflected in the shopping, most of which is located in the downtown area. Tourists who travel to San Jose del Cabo will find a good deal of jewelry, fine art and folk art, textiles, and pottery. Many of these items are handcrafted by local designers and artists from various locations in Mexico.
