Where to Stay in San Jose

San Jose is the main hub of the Cabo de Gata Nature Park. The heart of the town is located around the main bay and extends to the marina on the northern end. This area has a lively atmosphere with the greatest concentration of bars and restaurants.

While it may be difficult to find a holiday rental on the beachfront, the majority of them are within a 10 min walk to the closest beach. For hotels, check out our Best Hotels in San Jose page.
