Your shopping bag is empty
Head north from the bustling Cabo San Lucas to escape the visiting college crowd and make your way to the sleepy town of Todos Santos. Todos Santos was named one of Mexico's “Pueblo Mágico” or Magic Towns by the Mexican government, part of a program to celebrate and preserve historically significant towns throughout Mexico. Having gained more popularity in recent years, a number of impeccable accommodations have popped up in the region including Paradero Hotel, Acre Baja and first on the scene, Hotel San Cristobal. We love Todos Santos for it’s art-filled shops, quintessential colorful flags strewn across the city's streets, and of course, it’s tasty culinary delights.
PURE PUEBLO MAGICO IN BAJA CALIFORNIA
01/ SURF & SHOP
Start your day surfing at nearby Playa Los Cerritos or a neighboring beach where you'll find some of the best waves in Baja. Spend the afternoon exploring the historical city center where you'll stumble upon a selection of boutiques selling artisanal goods, beachy attire, and jewelry. Stop at Caffe Todos Santos, a charming colorful eatery, for a quick espresso before heading out for a drive to catch the sunset and have dinner at the secluded and luxe bohemian Hotel San Cristobal.
02/ HIKE SIERRA DE LA LAGUNA
For a change of scenery, spend the day hiking in Sierra de la Laguna, a UNESCO dedicated Biosphere Reserve. This is ideal from November to late Spring before the Summer rain falls. Enlist a local guide to choose the best hike for you, from a day trip to crystal colored water pools to starry overnight adventures. You’ll encounter impressive biodiversity including over 900 plant varieties. If you can make it to the summit of Picacho by sunset you’ll be rewarded with sweeping views of vast mountains and the pacific coastline.
03/ AL FRESCO FARE ON THE FARM
Take a day trip to San Jose Del Cabo to indulge in an organic feast at Flora Farms, a seasonal farm-to-table restaurant and farm compound. First take the farm tour where you’ll explore the grounds and learn about native Mexican fruits and plants. Then spend two hours learning to make fresh tortillas by hand and traditional spicy guacamole using a mortar. Finish with an al-fresco lunch on site before heading over for an early evening mezcal cocktail at Acre Baja, a stylish neighboring boutique hotel.
