A brief history of Todos Santos

It was in the early 1980s when a wave of tourism started coming in after the Mexican government paved Mexico Highway 19 from La Paz to Cabo San Lucas. This highway passes right through Todos Santos, so from then, it made it easier to get to this laid-back hideaway.
Furthermore, many fine artists, artisans, and craftsmen also moved to Todos Santos. And, for that reason, this community became famous for its art and cultural display.

Things to do in Todos Santos

The southern Baja peninsula hosts several unique eco-systems to explore. For example in December, you can see the whales migrate down the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Cortez. You can also explore miles of unspoiled beaches, go exotic bird watching, take a fun hike, kayak, surf, snorkel, scuba-dive, or go fishing. In Todos Santos the sky’s the limit!

Visit the Cerritos Beach Club

Playa Los Cerritos is one of the most peaceful beaches in Todos Santos. There you’ll embrace the Baja California surfer vibe.

Release sea turtles
