Todos Santos was part of the Jesuit evangelization. The mission, built in 1723, is an icon in the town’s history.
However, the most surprising thing about Todos Santos is finding such a magnificent theater, with Californian architecture and superb acoustics, in a town so small. The theater was built by Mr. Francisco J. Mugica, the Governor of the Territory of Baja California Sur at the time. It seems he was moved by the acting talent he saw in the people who performed at a festival presented in his honor.
The Teatro Manuel Marquez de Leon was inaugurated on February 5, 1944. It has been the center of important historical, social and cultural events ever since.
In the scenario that covers the great oasis of Todos Santos, beautiful beaches are distinguished with an exceptional climate, the Pacific Ocean and in the whale watching season, the humpback whale is admired by locals and visitors, a magical encounter with the enigmatic nature.
Tourist activity in this area began to grow in 1980. The town’s ideal location on the Tropic of Cancer gives it an artistic atmosphere. No wonder you can find accomplished artists who contribute to the Todos Santos Cultural Center.
Todos Santos offers beaches, lush vegetation and unique architecture, inspiration of national and foreign artists who exhibit works, in more than 20 galleries of renowned painters and sculptors throughout this corner of Baja California Sur.
Choose among 11 sumptuously appointed, wildly imaginative rooms and suites. Each has been vividly and individually decorated with furniture and art from throughout the world creating a truly incomparable personal experience. Enjoy the lush perfume of the oasis from your private terrace or the “Hotel Guests Only” poolside lounge as you enjoy the idyllic weather or watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.
