Things to Do in Todos Santos, Mexico

No reviews, be the first!

Close to the tip of Mexico’s arid Baja Peninsula, this quiet, colonial village of some 5,000 people is the relaxed and refined alternative to much more famous Cabo San Lucas, about an hour away. Instead of aggressive time-share salespeople, huge cruise ships and souvenir T-shirts, Todos Santos offers fine dining, art galleries and wide open, wildlife-rich beaches.

The setting is stunning, even by Mexican standards, here in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna. Saguaro cacti, crashing waves and pretty little adobe houses surround the modest town, built atop a natural oasis. It was once a popular resort for the silver-mining aristocracy of El Triunfo and San Antonio, and has more recently become a magnet for artsy expats and Mexicans fleeing bigger cities.
