Todos Santos

This laid-back surfer’s paradise on the Baja Peninsula is perfect for a few days of chill time.  With beautiful, white sand beaches and views of the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range, it is no surprise that is one of the country’s most up and coming destinations.

We stayed at the Hotel San Cristobal, owned by Texas-based Bunkhouse Hotels, which is super chic and relaxed. This write up in Conde Nast Traveler gives you a sense of the vibe. The service was excellent, and the days end with spicy margaritas in the pool watching the sun dip below the horizon. In town, there is the famed “Hotel California” (yes, that one), and there also is the new Todos Santos Boutique Hotel, which just opened this year, and looks fab.

(N. B. The water in front of the Cristobal is rough and not recommended for swimming.)


We arrived on a Saturday and got right into the mood with their weekly guitar sound bath in the chapel.  The hotel has organized morning hikes and yoga.  We did not surf, but they can arrange it for you. Meal highlights were Jazamango, a farm to table spot run by the renowned Mexican Chef Javier Plascencia, and the beautiful outdoor garden at Dum.  Paradero Hotel was also recommended for dinner.  We grabbed breakfast pastries and coffee at Taller 17 before walking around the town to hit shops like Hilo Rojo and Mercado.  And we loved stopping at the Pronto Muy Pronto boutique for pottery and clothes on our way to lunch on the beach at The Green Room.

With more time we would have liked to explore La Paz and Isla Espiritu Santo, so put those both on your radar if you are thinking of a trip to this area.
