The ride to Todos Santos was a bit longer then I had expected from the resort Melia Cabo Real in Los Cabos. I have travelled single-lane highways (with paved shoulders) in Michigan ,but this was a bit of a challenge with various farm animals within arms reach of the car and semis that were not meant to travel mountainous terrain. 40 miles equated to an hour and twenty minute ride. Friendly people in the dirt-floored shops as well as educated Gallery owners and personel were available to help with questions and conversation. A nice selection of goods on the "trinket scale" and the art viewed in the Galleries was reasonably priced and of "fine arts " quality. I was amazed at the simplicity of the gallery set ups and the refreshing casual /relaxing feel of the open -air spaces. A great way to exhibit art. The Hotel California was a treasure. Loved the eye-appealing colors each room had. I think the light fixtures were by Dale Chihully, but the hotel attendant didn't understand what I was talking about, when I asked her about them. The dark carved wood furniture and wrought -iron pieces added to the authenticity of the historical theme. The bar sparkled with blue-purple twinkling lights, a large mirror and a handsome display of liquor bottles. Really cool, and I would have stayed if my children weren't with me. Lots of uneven and cobbled roads and sand. It deserves a longer visit then 1/2 a day. Next time I will take my art pals instead of my family. HKL

We drove the hour from Cabo to Todos santos as I had heard now that there is a highway it's a visit worthwhile. We shopped and ate at Hotel California. Town was nice to vist without the hounding of Cabo sellers. Then took a dirt road to a wonderful beach just out of town. As far as you could see, one end to the other being beach with only one couple on it, beautiful. Don't miss!

It is about 48 miles from Cabo. Garry and I debated for some time whether to do the drive. Some folks said it was a very rough drive while others told us it wasn't. On Monday night we decided to rent a car Tuesday morning and "Just do It". we left Cabo at 9:30 am and didn't arrive in Todos Santos till 11:00am. A majority of the drive was on dirt road and very slow but we enjoyed seeing the Mexican countryside. For those who have driven the back roads of Aruba this drive is a piece of cake. Never once did we feel in danger and there are workers all along the way. Once we arrived at Todos Santos we were met with lots of workers cleaning the town. They were preparing for their Independence Day Celebration. We spent some time at the Hotel California (not overnight) and its Emporium. It was a cute boutique hotel that had charm and the Mexican ambiance. We walked several blocks throughout the town and were greeted only once by a begger who was not threatening at all. The locals are polite and understand the meaning of "no" said once. We enjoyed perusing the shops and even tasted Tequila at some of the vendor stands. We enjoyed lunch at a cool place called Tequila Sunrise. The food, drinks and servers were wonderful! @3:00 we decided to make the trek back to Cabo. Again, a safe trip. In all, i would recommend that anyone take the trip once and make their own decision.

Local police are corrupt. They claim that you run a red light that does not exist. They take you into an alley and take your license from you and then try to extort 12,000 pesos for the return of your license. Luckily, we have heard of this in Mexico and were able to negotiate it down to 80.00 u.s. We will never return to Todos Santos (Hotel California) in Baja Mexico.

if you go to baja california sur, this is a place you have to see..
Todos Santos is a very charming little town with spectacular views of the pacific..!!
the town is small but very colorful and full of little stores and nice hotels boutique..
One of the biggest atacction is the hotel California (some people say the eagle song "hotel california" it's based on this place)
another cool thing you can do here is the turtle release (everyday at 5 pm)
honestly if you go to Cabo you have to visit this place that is just 45 min away

What a quaint little town! Rich with culture and authentic Mexican surroundings, if you have the time it is well worth the drive. Great restaurants and shops and often a festival taking place.

Nice ride to Todos Santos from San Lucas,Mexico, about one hour drive along the coast of Pacific Ocean. BUT, beware, when in town there is one traffic light that is old and small and way up on a pole. It is easy to miss! Then guess what if you do miss it? 1300.00 ticket in pasos. So, look for the traffic light and don't fly through it like we did.

We rented a car in Cabo and drove up to Todos Santos. It's a nice easy drive, takes a little over an hour, if you don't stop on the way. Our friends had been there before and said "don't go" it's not worth it...... but we went anyways, and I'm glad we did. It was fun to walk around the little town, looking inside all the shops. We met really nice people, and especially the lady who owns the pottery shop named Katherine (I'm hoping I get her name right). She is from the U.S. but has been there many years. It was fun speaking with her and all the other shop vendors, as well. They will negotiate on their prices and they want you to buy, so don't take the first price offered. One of the store owners told us of a little restaurant to eat at, where all the locals go, and it was awesome !! I'd definitely go back.... it was a little artsy town, with friendly people, and great scenery on the drive up.

It’s a small and beautiful place that you should go and see, 40min from Los Cabos a day road trip is enough but it’s a must in your trip to la baja peninsula

We did a day trip up to Todos Santos while we stayed in Cabo. A very quaint little village with small shops, Hotel California, and other small restaurants. We enjoyed our stop, but don't expect anything amazing. Just a nice get away to see a smaller town in Mexico while you are in Cabo.
