For better or worse, the surf coming to the Todos Santos area is very, very, dangerous. There are posted beaches discouraging swimming. 'Rogue' waves from the north Pacific can "hump up' and sweep people off beaches. Playa Los Cerritos is in the 'wave shadow' of a spit of land and is one of the few really same beaches on the...

If you like to lay on a beach that feels like no one else is around for miles, you can easily find a place to get comfortable here and be free from the hustle and bustle that exists on the north end of the beach. Vendors are less likely to bother you in this southern part of the beach. If... More

Cerritos is a swimable/surfable beach by Todos Santos. There is a restaurant/bar here as well. Keep in mind that the Pacific side is colder and less turquoise than its' neighbor to the south, Cabo, and much of Todos Santos area beaches are just flat out unsafe-even for our born and raised beach family. So, we had a nice afternoon at... More

This is a great, long beach and a ton of fun for body surfing. We should have bought some short boards at Walmart as the waves were perfect. Lots of people surfing (I think you can rent there). Sand was soft and water wasn't really cold once you were used to it. The dirt road to get there is a... More

The beach was great for swimming, surfing. The Cerritos surf colony was a wonderful way to end a day at the beach. Delicious nachos and tasty drinks, while listening to a fabulous band, playing Bob Dylan style of music. The pool and hot tub were very nice. All accessible to us and we were not even staying there.

We have been going to Lost Cerritos beach for years and have seen many changes as more and more housing is built nearby. This is our favorite beach for our family because it meets all of our needs: our child can swim here although their is a very strong riptide, my husband can surf (long and short board waves) and...

Perfect Mexico beach. We rented 2 surf boards ($10 each for the day!) and played in the surf all day. The folks that rent the boards are attached to the Cerriots Beach Club and allowed us to swap out boards throughout the day for the same price so we used a couple of different surf boards, bogie boards and skim...

This beach is a short drive from Totas Santos and is a great way to spend a day at the beach. We had some of the best fish of our entire vacation under an umbrella looking out on the sea. My husband had a massage on the beach and he said that Gabby is one of the best and the... More

REALLY enjoyed visiting Cerritos Beach ... reminded me of what Cabo used to be. Nice big beach, surfable waves (and surf rentals), swimmable water, beach restaurant and free parking. If you want to get away from the mayham in Cabo during spring break ... this is a nice place to visit. 10 min's south of Todos Santos down a dirt... More
