Todos Santos is approximately fifty miles north of Cabo San Lucas and fifty miles south of La Paz on highway 19. This is a beautiful one-hour drive, from Cabo, through the mountains and along the ruggedly beautiful Pacific coast. This small town has a history dating back to the early 1700s and was originally the location of a Jesuit mission and plantations that produced sugar cane and mangos. At one time this area supported eight sugar mills.
Today Todos Santos is known for being somewhat of an artists colony with several shops featuring the work of local artists. Todos Santos is also known for the quality of the local fresh fruits and vegetables, hand made furniture and some surfing nearby. Todos Santos is a nice stop on a one-day tour of the southern tip of Baja California Sur. Browsing the colorful shops and lunch at one of the outstanding restaurants will prove to be time well spent.
