Todos Santos and Pescadero
Todos Santos and Pescadero are located in Baja California Sur, near the Tropic of Cancer, where the Sierra Madre mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. Todos Santos was established as a mission in 1723, and the town thrived on sugar cane production through the mid-20th century. Tourism, agriculture and fishing are what fuel the economy today.
According to the 2015 census, the combined population is 9,636. Since that time, the area has become an extremely popular tourist destination and home to many more part-time and full-time expats. The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted this year’s census efforts.
People come from all over the world to watch whales, release turtles, and enjoy the healthy lifestyle with fresh organic produce, yoga studios, surfing and miles of pristine beaches. Downtown Todos Santos is full of charming classic architecture, art studios, local crafts, authentic cuisine, music art and film festivals.
Todos Santos was designated a “Pueblo Mágico” in 2006.
