Desert. Beach. Mountains. …and yes, plenty of local mescal!
Sitting at the point where the Sierra Laguna mountains meet the desert and the Pacific, Todos Santos is a piece of Baja that we can’t wait to share with you! With a quirky mix of locals, fishers, surfers and new age spiritualists, the town of “All Saints” is a small gem just an hour north of Cabo — an area so enchanting that in 2006, the Mexican government designated it a Pueblo Magic — one of just 100 or so small towns In Mexico honored for its natural beauty, cultural riches and historic relevance.
WHERE TO EAT
Set within a lush vegetable garden down a dirt road, Hierbabuena is a lovely spot for a delicious farm-to-table dinner. The menu features excellent salads based on garden's daily bounty, wood-fired pizzas and meats, and a delicious eggplant parmesan.
LA COPA COCINA
Best Baja-style fish tacos in the area!
A must for coffee and baked goods; on the weekends during high season it is also the sight of a bustling farmers market and excellent people watching.
CAFE SANTE FE
Upscale Italian and a nice break from the ceviche and fish tacos!
