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.

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.

Developers Are Encroaching
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.

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.

Awe Inspiring Ocean
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

If you're looking for something unique to commemorate your trip or for gifts, this is a cool little find. Great lithographs...we bought 4!!! Of note: they only take cash, but accept both Mexican and US dollars.

Poorly documented beach
Finding this beach is difficult but worthwhile if you are a surfer with some experience. I and my daughter are not so we just waded and looked for shells. This has none of the facilities that the cerritos beach has which lies south of Todos Santos. Althou

Since opening our doors in 1994 the challenge was to find only the finest artists in Southern Baja. We have met that challenge with 15 artists represented in our gallery. Whether contemporary or traditional, you will find it at The Galeria de Todos Santos.

We enjoyed the museum, with mock-ups of local houses, local politicians and presidents of Mexico, a lot about Frida Kahlo, woodworking tools, ancient skulls and the story of Dom Ramon Wong. It is in an old school with some interesting modern vfrescos and
