Misión San José del Cabo Añuití (Mission of San Jose del Cabo Church)
Established as a mission in 1730 by the Missions Inspector José de Echeverría and the priest Nicolás Tamaral, it owes it name to the Marquis of Villapuente, Don José de la Fuente and Peña, the town’s great benefactor.
In 1735, the mission was moved to the beach but in 1753 it was re-established at its original site. The mission experienced floods, epidemics and illnesses, including an attack from the Chilean navy, all of which it resisted until it was abandoned in 1840.The beautiful San Jose Church was built in 1940 close to the place of the original misson, has a lovely mosaic located on the façade, at the main entrance, which narrates the killing of the missionary Tamaral by Pericúes living in the region
Plaza Mijares (Main Square)
A good place to start your tour is in the heart of San José del Cabo, at the charming main square, called Mijares Plaza, the tree-filled central square with its attractive bandstand and outdoor amphitheater where a variety of cultural events are staged. There is no fixed event calendar, but there is always something to enjoy, if not just an ice-cream while you relax on a bench.This is also the center of all the action in San José del Cabo, on the west side is Iglesia San José (Saint Joseph Church) that stands over the place where the original mission was established. You'll find restaurants, art galleries, jewellery stores and shops along Zaragoza, Obregon, Hidalgo streets and Boulevard Mijares.

San José Estuary
This lovely oasis is Baja California Sur’s tropical bird sanctuary and has been designated as a Protected Natural Area. It is the habitat of 150 different species of birds; watching them is a sensational experience. The two birds that seem to be a ubiquitous presence here are frigate birds and brown pelicans, a constant reminder of the sanctuary’s proximity to the sea.The estuary was originally called Bahía de San Bernabé in the XVI Century by Sebastian Vizcaino and was used as a safe harbor for trips between Acapulco and Manila. It is formed by the waters of San José river that flows from Sierra La Laguna.
