A dose of hidden art and culture
A private day trip to the quaint Baja town, Todos Santos, made famous by the Hotel California of The Eagles album, is the perfect dose of culture for your Los Cabos stay at The Cape.
Todos Santos was founded in 1723, and nearly destroyed by the Pericú rebellion in 1734. The Misión Santa Rosa de Todos los Santos ambled along until its abandonment in 1840. Then, in the late 19th century Todos Santos became a prosperous sugar town with several brick trapiches (mills), but depleted aquifers have nearly eliminated this industry. The crumbling, photo-worthy brick structures still remain in several parts of town.
Now, Todos Santos is one of the most appealing towns in Baja because it has largely escaped the tourist crush and an oasis-like palm grove surrounds the town. The Centro Cultural Museum, housed in a former schoolhouse, is also home to nationalist and revolutionary murals dating from 1933.
We suggest getting the private day tour with Johann and Sandra of Cabo San Lucas Tours who will pick you up from the hotel and take care of you the whole day so you can relax and soak in the history of this remarkable area.
