Visit Todos Santos, Mexico
The small picturesque town of Todos Santos is a natural paradise and was denominated a "Pueblo Mágico" (magic town) in 2006 mainly because of its well preserved historical buildings, its buoyant fishermen cum artist community, and its diversity of landscapes and microclimates - where the desert meets the Sierra Laguna mountain range.
Located on the Pacific coast about 45 miles north of Cabo San Lucas (1.5 hours drive), it is a little oasis of palms and fruit trees producing delicious mangos, papayas, avocados and more. It has a lovely charming colonial center that has long attracted artists and as a result many small cafes and restaurants have opened up. The pacific ocean is about 2 kilometers from the town center and the surrounding fertile fields nestle alongside miles of pristine, unspoiled beaches. The area attracts beach lovers, bird-watchers, hikers, wildlife enthusiasts, kayakers, surfers, scuba-divers and fishermen. It makes for a lovely place to relax at the end or beginning of any trip to the region and is easy and safe to walk around even at night.
