Villa Santa Cruz, Todos Santos, Baja Sur
Not to be confused with the big-wave spot Todos Santos, the rustic town of Todos Santos is in southern Baja. Miles of sand-bottom beach break surround the town, including the beginner-friendly Cerritos Beach. The area’s best known break is La Pastora, a rock-bottom right-hand point break that picks up swell from multiple directions.
Where You'll Stay: Located five miles north of Todos Santos, the Villa Santa Cruz offers four luxuriously appointed private suites. Inspired by traditional Mexican architecture, the Villa Santa Cruz features a central courtyard with a fountain and a roof lit from the sky. Each morning, coffee service arrives at guests’ doors, followed by fresh-cooked breakfast, and the option of a Mexican-inspired lunch of fish tacos, tamales, or other local favorites. Villa Santa Cruz is steps from the beach and a 10-minute walk to the point at La Pastora.
Rates and Getting There: There are two airports that service the Todos Santos area — San Jose del Cabo and La Paz. The resort recommends renting a car for the visit. Rates vary by season, but start at $175 for a junior suite. Villa Santa Cruz closes from August 2 to October 14 each year. [villasantacruzbaja.com]Back to top
