Updated: Dec 10, 2022

The beauty of the Southern Baja is legendary, and the Todos Santos is a sparking oasis gem in this region of Mexico. Known for its laid-back artistic vibes and historic cobblestone streets, Todos Santos has become a destination for those seeking a more self-directed experience in travel destinations.

With a designation of Pueblo Magico in Mexico, Todos Santos is free of gated resorts that would block the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and is known for the most exotic sunsets imaginable – every evening without fail.

It is highly recommended to rent a car for at least a few days, as there are many places genuinely worth experiencing that will only be accessible by vehicle. As Todos Santos is not a typical resort style destination your trip will be further enhanced by the opportunity to explore!
