Todos Santos Pages

todos santos pueblo magico

Todos Santos has many fine restaurants that vary from street-side taco stands to elegant sit down affairs. We have tried to include the types of food served, location and hours when possible.

Please remember that the business scene is very fluid in Todos Santos. Restaurants come and go with great frequency. Most of the restaurants listed below have exhibited staying power in the past and hopefully will continue to thrive in the future. Also listed are a few new ones that we hope will stand the test of time. Also note that all businesses adjust their hours as the tourist season winds down and some will close for 2-8 weeks during the months of August through October.

The print edition of El Calendario de Todos Santos has detailed information and up-to-date maps that will help you locate all the businesses and landmarks in town. Be sure to pick up the latest edition when you visit.

Todos Santos is located on the Tropic of Cancer in the southern portion of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico just one hour
north of Cabo San Lucas and one hour south of La Paz. Long known as a cultural, artistic and agricultural center, the
town is a desert oasis, 1 kilometer from the Pacific Ocean at the foothills of the Sierra de La Laguna mountains. Since
the mid 1980's, the area has become a tourist / retirement destination and home to numerous art galleries, artists,
fine restaurants, elegant hotels, unique vacation rentals and local festivals.
