Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico
Todos Santos is a magical place, just a little over an hour from hopping Cabo, yet truly a world away. A rugged, remote paradise, it draws all types of visitors, particularly the adventurous and creative types, with a wealth of art galleries, boho shops, surfing schools, welcoming cafes, an outstanding culinary scene, and of course, golden beaches that can often be enjoyed in total solitude. Although it has a laid-back culture, it packs a punch when it comes to things to do – with yoga studios galore, a wealth of festivals, community events and plenty of outdoor activities, from sea kayaking, snorkeling and whale watching to horseback riding along the sand. This town of around 6,000 permanent residents is special – it seems to have a soul of its own, making it difficult to leave but easy to discover what you’ve been missing. In fact, it might just be right here.
