"Adelita's Misfortune"  by  Shonda BottkeTucked into the narrow streets radiating from the historic main plaza of San Jose del Cabo you’ll find a thriving and sophisticated art and dining scene.

Thursday night is Art Walk from November to June. Studios and galleries around Alvaro Obregon stay open until 9PM. They encourage guests to browse and buy by handing out free libations and snacks. Often there’s live music in the plaza and it’s not unusual for the streets to be full of locals, tourists and artists, all mingling and enjoying the energizing vibe.

You’ll discover a high quality of paintings, sculpture, jewelry, intricate Huichol beadwork, amber and local handicrafts. Many of the galleries invite their artists to be on hand to meet potential buyers and discuss their work.
