The Hotelito
The Hotelito

For authentic Baja, head north from Cabo on the newly rebuilt Highway 1 to this low-fi, happy little village, a vortex for artists, expats, surfers, and wanderers. Check your bags at Hotel Casa Tota, the new cheap-and-cheerful boutique hotel whose modern minimalist rooms cost around $100 per night. Lounge by the pool or head up to the rooftop for yoga, hammock time, or cold cervezas. Another compelling home base can be found at The Hotelito, a stylish, intimate retreat with four decked-out cottages and a fabulous saltwater pool, set at the edge of town. Todos Santos sports stunning beaches—take a surf lesson in the gentle waves at Cerritos Beach with Mario Surf School. Or explore the backcountry terrain on 30 miles of single-track while mountain biking with Todos Aventura. Head to Bistro Mágico for Mexican-Mediterranean cuisine with the freshest local ingredients, and then end the evening at the Sky Bar on Hotel Guaycura’s rooftop for margaritas and music under the stars.
