Celebrating Mom’s Birthday at Blue Fish.

On my mom’s birthday we had lunch at Blue Fish Restaurant, a place known for sea food and oh so delicious meals!

I ordered fish and shrimp tacos today, a plate that I often go to every time I come down to San Jose Del Cabo. I don’t know what it is but, I think the tacos here are so much better than in California. Could it be the combination of the fresh food or the way the food is cooked? One thing for sure is that I can’t seem to get enough of it. We ended our meal with a cheesecake dessert that were equally shared among the 3 of us. We were full and very satisfied.

After lunch, we walked around downtown San Jose where I made a quick stop at Rogelio Sanchez jewelry store. Rogelio, the owner and designer has the eye for intricate details and knows his silver rings inside and out. I’ve bought most of my rings from him and I always seem to come back every time I’m in town. Today was no different, I came home with 2 new rings and that I happily am glad to add to my collection.

I arrived Saturday night, tired from the flight yet mentally excited for a much needed break in Mexico. Having been here many times now, I feel SJD has become my 2nd home, however, the amount of places to see is still vastly waiting to be discovered. SJD is a booming market with new hotels (i.e. La Ventana coming soon) and restaurants being built every year, there always seem to be something new to see.

As soon as I landed, my folks picked me up at the airport and we immediately went to try a newish restaurant in downtown San Jose.

The food was ok. I ordered the Chicken Fajitas, while dad had the Steak plate, and mom had the Red Pepper Stuffing dish. I think the Bone Marrow appetizer was the best plate we had that night to be honest.

After dinner we walked around the square and found it quite buzzing with the locals roaming around the area. There was music playing, kids riding scooters, skating, teenagers canoodling and/or family birthday gatherings. We bought some popsicles and sat on a bench to people watch. It was a cool night and a great way to end the day.

Visiting The Gallery District

TheGalleryDistrict | astintabroad

One of my favorite things to do in San Jose Del Cabo is walking through The Gallery District in downtown. It is definitely a must see and do when someone comes to visit for the first time. The streets are lined with small shops, art galleries, cafe’s, markets, restaurants, and much more. If, that’s not enough, every Thursdays there’s an art walk event between 5-9pm. The town comes alive with locals and tourists flocking the streets. Normally, the art galleries will have new exhibitions or a chance for people to meet with the artists. What’s not to like, right?
