Square, Plaza sights in Baja California

Virtually every visitor to Tijuana has to experience at least a brief stroll along raucous Av Revolución, also known as 'La Revo'. It's a mishmash of nightclubs, bellowing hawkers outside seedy strip bars, brash taxi drivers, tacky souvenir stores, street photographers with zebra-striped burros, discount liquor stores and restaurants.
If you're walking north to south but find the sensory assault from high-tech sound systems too overwhelming to return the same way, try the more conventional shopping street of Av Constitución, paralleling La Revo one block west. It has a far more local flare.
San José del Cabo has managed to keep its historic colonial atmosphere, laidback friendliness and natural tranquillity. Nowhere are these qualities more on show than in and around the distinctly uncluttered Plaza Mijares, a breezy square shaded by ancient trees, flanked by the mission church, town hall, small stores and restaurants.
Also known as 'Parque Amelia Wilkes' this square is perfect for relaxing away from the partying throngs in Cabo. Take a breather 'neath the gazebo or in the shade of the poultry-shaped bush, or nurse your hangover on one of the benches. The square is surrounded by classy shops and cantinas if you get fidgety.
