In the heart of San José del Cabo’s historical center, you’ll find the exquisite town square known as Plaza Mijares. During the Mexican American War (1846-1846) US marines briefly occupied the city, Mexicans were victorious in the bloody siege that ensued. Their victory was achieved under the leadership of Mexican Naval officer Jose Antonio Mijares; the man whom the plaza is named after.
