Todos Santos Mexico is a small town located up the coast from Cabo San Lucas, making it a popular day trip for many travelers. Its quiet streets and traditional style invoke images of years gone by, giving travelers a chance to slow down and experience small-town life in Mexico. While there are several tourist places and small towns near Cabo San Lucas to visit, Todos Santos is a must.

Hike Punta Lobos

Before Todos Santos Mexico became a city, it was already one of the most beautiful places in the world. Hike up Punta Lobos to surround yourself with the desert vistas, ocean views, and mountain landscapes that have long enchanted travelers. After 3km of hiking up the rocky coast, all of this stretches out before your eyes. Continuing the hike to San Pedro, or Las Palmas, Beach is one of the more adventurous things to do in Todos Santos. Not only will you discover one of the secluded Todos Santos beaches, but you might also spot the ruins of an old fishermen shrine, one of the lesser-known tourist places on the coast.

Todos Santos Mexico


The more popular beach destinations in Mexico have become bustling cities, so escaping to small towns near Cabo San Lucas allows you to leisurely wander cobblestone streets and avoid the crowds. Todos Santos is one of the best tourist places for this, especially since it was named a Pueblo Mágico, a Magical Town, a distinction given by the government to small towns that preserve Mexican history, culture, and environment. The cobblestone streets of downtown Todos Santos were first paved in the 1800s when sugar cane production helped build the community. Stopping by Misión Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Todos Santos, the local church built in 1733, and shopping for treasures in boutiques like Nomad Chic and Etnica are two popular things to do in Todos Santos. If the afternoon sun gets warm, grab a cone of locally made ice cream.

Todos Santos Beaches


Like most cities in Baja California Sur, Todos Santos is known for its tropical beaches. On local Todos Santos beaches, you can relax on the warm sands or sit back with an icy margarita. You’ll also find freshly caught fish sizzling on the grill at restaurants. Surfing at Playa San Pedrito is a cool way to pass the day at the beach, and travelers who love the environment agree that releasing baby sea turtles is one of the most memorable things to do in Todos Santos. 

Hotel California


According to local legend, Hotel California in Todos Santos Mexico inspired the legendary song by The Eagles. While this might not be true, it’s still one of the most popular tourist places on the coast. Grab a bite to eat and a drink on the patio at the hotel’s restaurant, La Coronela. On the weekends, live bands come to perform, making it a popular spot for small-town nightlife in downtown Todos Santos.

Dining in Todos Santos


In small towns near Cabo San Lucas, you’ll find traditional Mexican cuisine made with recipes passed down over generations. Drive down a dirt road to eat at Hierbabuena, and you won’t be disappointed. Using produce grown in their kitchen garden, every dish is fresh and rich with the flavors of Mexico. Cafe Santa Fe has a reputation for being one of the best restaurants in the region, and its Italian owner and chef creates exquisite pastas and grills fresh fish and lobster. Another classic favorite is La Garra, serving everything from chiles rellenos to scallop sashimi, and with its live music and televised sports, it’s always a good time here. 

For something new on your Cabo vacation, visit Todos Santos, and discover another side of Mexico’s charm.
