What to Do When in Todos Santos Baja Mexico
Todos Santos, which means All Saints in English, is a small paradise located some 45 miles away from the beautiful resort city of Cabo San Lucas. The construction of Mexico Highway 19 paved the way for tourists to discover this once sleepy, uninteresting town and has made it everyone’s a new favorite destination when in Baja, Mexico.
This place is ideal for people who love arts and culture; those who like to be one with nature, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Grand Solmar Vacation Club offers An Overview of the Town
Although this town was established in the early 1700s, it was only during the beginning of the 20th century when it started to prosper due to the booming sugar production. Sugar production was the primary source of income of the people, and from here they were able to build stunning buildings inspired by the Colonial Era.
Todos Santos is a typical farm town. Palm and fruit trees welcome guests upon arrival. In the past years, this town has slowly become the center of culture and arts in the Pacific coast of Baja.
Art galleries filled with beautiful local creations can be found everywhere in the town proper. If you are someone who loves to collect paintings, then you can bring home with you art pieces straight from the painter’s gallery or now have them easily delivered. Times have changed.
In addition to a sugar cane and delicious fruit-bearing trees, this town also takes pride of its eco-tourism. You can experience bird watching and hike at the mountain range of Sierra Laguna. Furthermore, because Todos Santos is also a coastal town, you can kayak, surf, and scuba dive in its white sand beaches like the Cerritos Beach.
