Discovering the Galleries
Take some time outside of El Colibri to get familiar with the nearby town of San José del Cabo. The town is small yet quaint in nature. Cobblestone streets, delectable eateries and traditional architecture guide your pathway to the center of town. You’ll find the historic, main square with many vendors ready to serve you. The towering church greets everyone as you look behind the main gathering area. With just a quick glance, you’ll find the Gallery District lined with art studios and unique restaurants to visit.
Distinguished artists from around the world grace the town with their artistic flair. You’ll find fine art in almost every shape and form, including:
- Original paintings
Explore most of the galleries on the Art Walk night that’s held from 5pm to 9pm every Thursday during the months of November to June. You’re welcome to drink a glass of wine as you casually stroll through the streets. Almost every piece is for sale so it’s possible to take home a souvenir that fits your style and personality.
Be sure to enjoy these galleries, such as:
- Casa Dahlia
- Ivan Guaderrama
- Patricia Mendoza
- Frank Arnold Gallery
Exploring Jewelry Finds
Enjoy art that you can wear by visiting the Zoko Boutique and Jonathan Sanchez gallery. These artists create jewelry that are entirely unique to every buyer. You’ll find these jewelry boutiques in the Art District and in the Church square, respectively.
Preferably, meander between the jewelry boutiques and the traditional art galleries. You’ll want to spend some time looking and trying on the jewels, so don’t forget to keep yourself fed as you pass by two of our favorite eateries that have live music playing, La Osteria or La Lupita. It may be late, but you can still have snacks and drinks in their outdoor courtyard as you enjoy the festivities and weigh in on the art seen all afternoon and evening long.
