Gay Todos Santos
Nestled between the biosphere of the Sierra La Laguna mountain range to the East and the Pacific Ocean to the West, Todos Santos is the only designated Pueblo Magico of Baja California. This is not your run of the mill mirage of palm trees in the middle of nowhere although there are plenty of lush palm groves to be found everywhere. Known for its pure water from the mountains, and ever-flowing springs, Todos Santos is a haven for some of the world’s most talented artists and restauranteurs. At first glance one can’t help but be charmed by the historic brick buildings, unique to the bygone era of the wealthy Baja sugar barons. Remains of old sugar mills are scattered throughout the area.
If you’re looking to experience how life used to be in the real Baja this is the ideal spot! This is a small town definitely in transition from the isolated agricultural and fishing village of yore, to a hip enclave of expats from Italy, France, Canada and the US, who are discovering it and making it home. The food is fabulous but not pretentious. It’s a genuine Mexican town filled with lovely, gentle people whose families have lived here for generations.
