The Todos Santos Experience
Today you’ll head to the magical town of Todos Santos. Learn about its captivating history, wander the quaint and colourful streets of the bohemian arts district and sample its delicious cuisine.
Todos Santos has a fascinating history and lively cultural scene so a day spent here is a highlight in any trip to Baja California. A Jesuit named Padre Jaime Bravo was the first Spaniard to discover the area when he found nomadic Guaycura people living off the inland water source and collecting shellfish along the coast. Thus in 1724, he established a farming community and a visiting mission called Todos Santos, which supplied the water-poor mission community up at La Paz with fruits, vegetables, wine and sugarcane. By 1731 production had boomed and Todos Santos was harvesting 200 burro (donkey)-loads of panocha (raw brown sugar) annually along with figs, pomegranates, citrus fruits and grapes.
Today ‘Todosanteños’ continue this agricultural tradition, cultivating their gardens and producing sweets and breads such as that made at the historic mills. The town also remains one of the most important Jesuit Mission sites in Baja and oft described by those who have had the pleasure of visiting as an oasis. In 2006, Todos Santos was named a Magical Town by the Mexican Secretary of Tourism and is considered a capital of culture, brimming as it is with inspirational and artistic visionaries and home to some of the world’s best local and foreign artists, musicians and writers.
This tour lasts 6 hours including round trip transportation. During this time, you’ll have time to learn about the magical town from your expert guide, explore the bohemian arts district and enjoy lunch – with some world-class margaritas should you choose!
