A brief history of Todos Santos
In 1723, Father Jaime Bravo founded the southern-Baja locale Nuestra Senora Del Pilar de la Paz. It eventually grew into a mission named Santa Rosa de Todos Santos in honor of its benefactor, Dona Rosa de la Pena.
After it was granted mission status, the La Paz population was moved there. The mission was abandoned in 1749 and the town was renamed Nuestra Senora del Pilar de Todos Santos.

Cerritos Beach, located between Cabo & Todos Santos, is less touristy than Cabo but still a hidden treasure. It has great waves for surfing and safe surf for swimming.

Cerritos Beach Club is a restaurant on the beach. You can rent chairs and umbrellas, wash off your sand, and order a margarita or mojito. The nearby town of Todos Santos was named a Mexican Pueblo Magico because of its charm and the presence of many local artists who can be found selling their work on the beach.
Cabo's spring break crowd is still not familiar with Cabo. Now is the time to get on the boat and explore Cabo before it's "discovered".
