Take a trip to Todos Santos

Take a trip to Todos Santos

Some of the lesser known attractions of Los Cabos can be found on a myriad of day trips out of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Todos Santos is slowly increasing in popularity with tours that uncover the region’s rich local history and tradition. Travel back in time to one of the most picturesque villages in Baja California Sur and learn about its colonial architecture, as well as the artists, surfers and creative minds that call this place home. Just an hour from Cabo San Lucas, this magic town is also home to the alleged original Hotel California, made famous by The Eagles.

Finish your adventure-filled day with a meal at the best Mexican food in town, Jazamango, and a peaceful moment to watch the pink and orange sunset that Baja California Sur is so loved for.

Why Los Cabos is the Farm to Table Master

An appreciation for food is an essential part of Mexican culture. While it is typical to think of Mexican food as tacos, burritos, chips and guacamole – even though this isn’t wrong – there is a lot more to it. Being at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California, Los Cabos is home to some of the most delicious seafood. Additionally, because Los Cabos is a rural region with large acres of land for farming, ingredients in most restaurants tend to be local and organic.

While sitting down for a meal anywhere in Los Cabos is a delightful experience, learning what goes into the making of your food can be even more rewarding. From picking the ingredients in the restaurants’ backyards to diving into the final masterpiece that is your meal, restaurants like Flora Farms, Acre and Los Tamarindos give you a unique, hands-on opportunity.

San Jose del Cabo’s Thursday “Art Walk”

Behind the surf lessons, kayaking adventures, glamorous spa treatments, and extravagant resort lifestyle, San Jose del Cabo brings the word ‘charm’ to a whole new level. Every Thursday evening from 5-9pm from November to June, San Jose del Cabo puts on its weekly event – the Art Walk.

Local artists put their work on display and art galleries open up their doors to visitors for a friendly, interactive night on the town. Think colourful flags in the sky, art on every corner, and local vendors and dancers parading the streets. This little town comes to life and provides travellers with an authentic Mexican experience.
