The town is cute as a button and seemingly untouched by the onslaught of "resortitis"...what you experience is a Mexico more like I imagine a visit might have been 20 years ago. Besides the landmark Hotel California, there is an interesting local museum that includes what everyday life was like in this area 100 years ago. There are welcoming roadside dolcerias...a fabulous (sorry, I don't remember the name, but it's across the street from Hotel California) restaurant making the best chili rellenos you ever tasted.
Even the more upscale shops seem to be more willing to negotiate sales prices than in San Jose or Cabo San Lucas.
(And it's about 15 degrees cooler than the hotel zones of Los Cabos.)
