Todos Santos is a small coastal town at the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, on the Pacific coast side of the Baja California Peninsula, about an hour's drive north of Cabo San Lucas on Highway 19 and an hour's drive southwest from La Paz. Kick off your visit on the 5th (Sat): explore the striking landscape at Punta Lobos, then enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Beach, and then indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll through Tortugueros Las Playitas, then walk around Parque Los Pinos, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Playa Los Cerritos, and finally stop by Mini Super Munchies.

For maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Todos Santos trip planning site.

Guadalajara to Todos Santos is an approximately 5.5- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Guadalajara to Todos Santos due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Guadalajara in October: high temperatures in Todos Santos hover around 36°C and lows are around 28°C. You will have some time to spend on the 7th (Mon) before leaving for La Paz.

Spend the 11th (Fri) exploring nature at Parque Nacional Bahia de Loreto. There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, browse the exhibits of Richard Jackson Galeria, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and contemplate the long history of Misión San Francisco Javier de Viggé-Biaundó.

San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo ©
Underdeveloped and unexplored for most of its history, San Jose del Cabo emerged as a major tourist destination in the 1970s, when a growing number of sun-and-sand visitors discovered the area's appealing beaches.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cabo San Lucas (El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, La Turquesa Jewelry and Art, &more). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Chileno Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Enrique Bascon, Galeria de Arte, and explore the galleries of Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery.

Plan my trip to San Jose del Cabo with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can drive from Loreto to San Jose del Cabo in 6.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of flight and car. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in October, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
