The 10 Best Things to Do in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur

Sitting at the point where the Sierra Laguna mountains meet the desert and the Pacific, Todos Santos is a piece of Baja you don’t want to miss. But get here soon—Todos Santos is transitioning from a quiet, dusty Mexican seaside secret into the bustling hermanito of Cabo San Lucas, so you'll want to visit before the crowds are permanent.

Must Do

One of my favorite things to do in Todos Santos. I do it at least once every time I visit. The people who ran things this visit were especially good and seemed very committed. I highly recommend this activity especially for children and families.

This was by far our favourite beach in the area. Unfortunately resort development has increased dramatically and it’s starting to get ‘crowded’ and accessible parking is starting to wane. The Cerritos Beach Bar closed its ‘doors’ our final week there as t

This is a fantastic beach ! The access road is rough, be prepared for large ruts/potholes. Secluded and beautiful. The beach is a 5 minutes walk from parking. It is not private land , this is a public location. No services or facilities. So relaxing.

This church is a historical and architectural landmark in Todos Santos.

Always respect history. Nice.

I am always looking for a significant historical landmark even in beach communities. This one did not disappoint. It is one of California's Dominic missions, or what's left of it. Hopefully they continue to take care of it.

This beach is right next to Playa La Poza, as in if you are at one, you are at the other, really. The waves are fierce and forceful - amazing to see and hear. When the sun shines through them, you can see the animals in the waves - rays, fish, etc. STRONG
