Vegan on the Go: A Weekend in San Jose del Cabo

If the streets of Cabo San Lucas are where you go to party, San Jose del Cabo is the beautiful, sleepy respite you want waiting for you when you wake up the next morning. Separated by the corridor and a 30-minute cab ride, these two cities are alike and different – fraternal twins of sorts. In San Jose, the booming nightlife that Cabo is well known for gives way to quiet, walkable streets, gorgeous galleries and a variety of shops.

Sometimes referred to as ‘Old Town’ and located south of the SJD airport, San Jose has become known for its traditional Mexican charm, storied history, majestic, swoon-worthy resorts, and some of the best golf courses in the world.

Typically, I’m wary of all-inclusive resorts, but Marquis Los Cabos convinced me to give all of them another chance. The service was amazing and while vegan options were not always readily available, the staff at each onsite restaurant and in the kitchen were happy to accommodate us.

There are five onsite restaurants (all-inclusive gives you full access to 4 of them) to choose from, as well as a hotel bar, a deli and 24-hr room service. Like most resorts, there’s a schedule of activities you can partake in as well as a full-service spa.

While the beach the resort is built on is not swimmable, there are others nearby that are and the resort itself offers multiple pools, including a stunning infinity pool overlooking the ocean. We actually found that this meant the beach was serene and quiet with no vendors or crowds. We walked several miles down the sand and saw only a handful of people.

If you’re looking for a relaxing place with gentle breezes to do your best catnap impersonation, a vacation you won’t need to recover from or the opportunity to sip wine while wandering in and out of galleries on a gorgeous, star lit night, San Jose del Cabo may be exactly what you’re looking for. And with Cabo just down the road, there’s plenty of opportunity to regret your choice of libation in the AM if you want a little of that, too.
