San Jose del Cabo is less touristy than Cabo San Lucas so I think you've made a great choice. It's where we had our wedding last November. As far as transportation, it is advisable to make all your reservations to and from the airport ahead of time (I think if you google cabo shuttle, you'll get a website through which you can arrange it); if you're not sure, let me know and I can dig up the website that I recommended to some of my guests. There are some condos in the area that you can also rent through VRBO.com so that your guests don't have to feel like they're in a hotel all the time but more in a home. You'll have to make sure though that the condos are within walking distance of the San Jose del Cabo's historic district.
There's also the Tropicana Inn which is really beautiful and quiet. It's very Mexican and not like a regular hotel or resort. One of my guests stayed there and so we went with him and his wife to check out the place; I loved it. If you search for it on hotels.com or any of the travel sites, you will see a lot of pictures. It also is right in the historic district so you can walk to restaurants, shops, etc. There's also a public bus that goes to Cabo San Lucas so your guests can hop on it and go to the touristy part of Cabo. You can also ask the front desk to arrange for cabs. Sometimes you'll see cabs out front but it's usually best to get the front desk to arrange for it; or if you do catch a cab out front, make sure you get them to tell you how much it is before you get in the car.
There is also the Hotel Cielito Lindo which had great reviews, is cheap, and quite authentically Mexican. However, I'm not sure how many of your guests like that kind of accommodation. We had thought about staying here after our wedding but decided to splurge a little more and went somewhere about a 15-minute drive away that was absolutely beautiful but not a resort.
But these are the two out-of-the-ordinary hotels that I know of. Otherwise, all my guests stayed in either condos or all-inclusive resorts in the area. I gave all my guests a choice so some people picked a resort while others picked a condo, and then one party picked the Tropicana.
Have you gotten all your vendors? Let me know if you have any questions! I'd be happy to help as much as I can!
