Destination Todos Santos Baja California what to do for a day or a week

Located north of Cabo San Lucas is the “Magical Village” (Pueblo Mágico) of Todos Santos. A sleepy little artists community, located in one of the few lush valleys in Baja. It makes a lovely place to spend the day shopping and eating, or a night or two before heading on to a few other quaint inns around the area. Currently a rather under developed gem in the Cabo region, that will most likely be changing over the next 5 to 10 years, so it might be better to journey there sooner rather than later.

Destination Todos Santos Baja California How to get here and where is it

An hour (or two) drive North of Cabo San Lucas, or a 1.5 hour drive from the main airport. Renting a car (4×4 recommended) makes for an easy drive, or one of the many car services can get you there as well. But your own mode of transport is recommended.

Destination Todos Santos Baja California Where to stay Hotel Recommendations

Hotel San Cristobal
Punta Lobos south of Todos Santos
This is where a hotel can be the actual destination. Located on a long sandy, isolated beach (for now at least). This wonderful little hotel has popped up. Part of the Bunkhouse Group, they offer true Austin charm (and a bit of sassy). The hotel fits perfectly into the locale, and brings a great little escape from Los Cabos and the outside world. Just a really pretty and easy place to stay for a few days.

Paradero Todos Santos

Paradero Todos Santos
Just south of Todos Santos
Paradero Todos Santos, a 35-suite hotel, is spread across five acres of land in an agricultural area comprising 160 acres of family-owned farms.

Thanks to its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, the immediate landscape here has five distinct ecosystems — the desert with 200-year-old Cardon Cacti, the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range, miles of virgin beaches along the Pacific coast and a far-reaching landscape with 5,000 palm trees and farmland. Because of this diversity, UNESCO has designated Todos Santos as a Biosphere Reserve — one of only two such sites in Baja.

The Todos Santos Inn
Calle Legaspi 33, Centro
Hands down, the cutes place in town to spend the night. With only 8-rooms it can be difficult to get a booking, but worht the effort. The bar is one of the best in Baja, and the restaurant makes a good alternative to local dining. My first choice to spend the night in Todos Santos.
