Todos Santos, a unique town filled with colorful streets, with well-preserved colonial architecture and beautiful landscapes, sits right on the Tropic of Cancer in the amazing area of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.
Since its founding as a Jesuit mission in the eighteenth century, Todos Santos has been the backdrop for many memorable stories, including battles with countries like France and the United States, and even with religious groups of Franciscans and Dominicans that coveted this territory. The spectacular natural surroundings of the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range and the white sand beaches of the Pacific Ocean highlight the town's architecture along with its rich vegetation of orchids, palms and mango trees.
The biodiversity of Todos Santos comes from its unbeatable geographic location. It has the perfect soil for fruit trees like mango, papaya and avocado; the ocean holds gray and humpback whales that travel along the costs year after year, while migratory birds fly across the sky. Todos Santos also has an incredible climate all year round and enormous waves to attract surfers. This charming town is without a doubt something you won't want to miss out on.
The constant flow of incredible artistic ideas, from locals as well as visitors, has transformed Todos Santos into a paradise for creative thinkers. The local festivals, expos, competitions and galleries form the perfect stage for displaying artwork. Throughout the year, painters, sculptors, film makers and writers make a trip to this town, drawn in by the quality of the artwork.
Extreme sports are one of the highlights of Todos Santos, whose beautiful natural setting offers the perfect elements for a variety of activities.
