Todos Santos Inn

Todos Santos, Baja California Sur


  • Explore Todos Santos' many art galleries - there are at least 14 in the historic district (including one adjacent to the Inn) selling original oils, contemporary sculpture, folk art, pottery and jewellery, mostly by local artists and craftspeople

  • Visit the Casa de Cultura museum, which blends regional history with charming stories of former residents (including the general’s niece who “died of love” pining for the leading man in a romance novel)

  • Spend a day on the beach: Todos Santos is located just inland from Baja's Pacific coast, which boasts miles of unspoilt beaches - the best are generally a mile or so off the highway on unmarked dirt roads, so good directions and a little patience are essential! Riptides and undertows are common, so locals recommend swimming only at Las Palmas (secluded with a freshwater lagoon) and Los Cerritos

  • Go surfing. There are 3 world-class surfing spots - Los Cerritos (which also has a surf camp), La Pastora and San Pedrito - within a 7-mile radius

  • Enjoy some spiritual exploration: expats lead yoga (each weekday), Qigong classes and Buddhist meditation discussions near the Inn; there's a schedule in the free monthly El Calendario de Todos Santos

  • Dance the night away: there's live reggae, jazz, rock, pop or blues every Friday from 9pm until late at Santana’s restaurant, and on Saturdays at Hotel California

  • Relax by the pool and enjoy a massage in your room

Save to favouritesPrintMailTodos Santos InnTodos Santos residents still recall the day the regional governor hired a plane to scatter flowers into what is now the courtyard of the Todos Santos Inn, attempting to woo its resident beauty. It still remains a romantic oasis in this artists' community, a 90-minute drive north of commercialized Los Cabos. Built as the home of a sugar baron in 1872, the brick hacienda has been sensitively converted into a charming small inn, now owned by Los Angeles expat John Stoltzfus. The 8 [r:MX044:suites and rooms], with Spanish colonial-style beamed ceilings, hand-carved furniture, terracotta tiles and indulgent four-poster beds, surround a garden-patio lush with traveller’s palms, hibiscus and birds of paradise. Full of history, it whispers its stories in burbling courtyard fountains - interweaving them with evidence of the town’s evolution, from the faded mural of fisherman pulling their pangas onto the beach (as they still do at Punta Lobos), to its renowned bar and the upscale art gallery next door.
