Where to Shop in Los Cabos

Shopping malls are the latest development in the dedicated campaign to tame Los Cabos. In both towns (Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo) are an abundance of international designers boutiques featuring casual clothing and accesories for all, a variety of shops offering a wide selection of regional handicrafts, jewelry, quality leather goods, antiques, and souvenirs, and art galleries.

Most shops are open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. with a siesta time recess from 2 to 4 p.m.. Some open Sundays until 1 p.m.

In the village of Cabo San Lucas, life radiates from the plazas. The way to travel is by foot as everything is close at hand. The town is host to wonderful restaurants, lively nightclubs, and beautiful hotels, and for those who love to shop, the main streets and alleys of Cabo overflow with fun and fanciful boutiques brimming with souvenirs, arts and crafts, jewelry, pottery, beachwear and clothing.

The street vendors bring their own version of creative marketing to the village. Featuring a wide range of merchandise, downtown Cabo San Lucas is a great place to discover local artisans, along with everything from traditional Mexican artifacts to American made products
