TODOS SANTOS DAY 1: WELCOME TO MEXICO
Fly into Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) and you will likely arrive around noon. We recommend renting a car from the airport or we can coordinate private transportation for you. It is about an hour-long drive to Todos Santos and we recommend checking into Hotel San Cristobal first. Relax by the hotel's amazing pool then have dinner at the restaurant called Benno. We highly recommend their mezcal pairing with your dinner!
TODOS SANTOS DAY 2: POOL DAY
Hotel San Cristobal’s Benno restaurant is open for breakfast as well which is a great way to start your day. Spend a leisurely morning by the pool before grabbing lunch at the pool bar, then get ready for an amazing rest of your day at Rancho Corazón Todos Santos. Ask the hotel for transportation to Rancho Corazón and spend your day relaxing by their jungle oasis pool and sipping on delicious cocktails. We recommend bringing a change of clothes for dinner since their Dum restaurant is one of the best in Todos Santos. Their 5-course tasting menu offers the freshest seasonal ingredients and it is an amazing dining experience. Watch our Instagram reel of Rancho Corazon here!
TODOS SANTOS DAY 3: BEACH DAY
On day three of your long weekend getaway to Todos Santos, we recommend checking out of Hotel San Cristobal and heading to Cerritos Beach for the day. If you like to surf, this is one of the best locations to catch some waves! You can also walk along the beach, watch the surfers, and stop at a local beach bar for food and cocktails. After spending your afternoon at the beach, we recommend checking into the Paradero Hotel. Take some time to relax in your unique room before having an amazing dinner at the Paradero Restaurant. The food is taken from their garden and seafood is sourced from the Sea of Cortez. Pair your meals with delicious cocktails from the hotel’s fresh juices and local herbs. You can also try Paradero’s Omakase experience which is a 5-course meal and drink pairing!
TODOS SANTOS DAY 4: EXPLORING
For your morning at Paradero, workout in their outdoor gym, have breakfast at their restaurant, and plan a spa treatment. Then, relax by the hotel’s half-moon pool and grab pool snacks and cocktails for lunch. Once you are ready for your next adventure, ask the hotel for transportation to downtown Todos Santos where you can visit the iconic Hotel California and shop at local stores. Then, plan for an amazing dinner at Oysteria!
TODOS SANTOS DAY 5: ADIOS
Time to say adios! On day 5, you'll be checking out of Paradero & flying out of the Los Cabos International Airport (SJD). Rich & Kitch can't wait to plan your trip!
