Before life takes over and I forget that I ever went to Mexico, I wanted to share more from the trip! In case you missed it, here’s the house I stayed in.
Todos Santos is basically a dusty little town right on the pacific in baja california. You can’t swim in the water in most places because the rip tide and current will take you right out to sea (though it’s got great surfing in hidden little spots).
Part of the town sits lower and has rich soil, little streams and tons of palm trees. The rest is very very dry.
There is a cluster of little stores, one of them sells this great geranium scented soap. It’s next to the english language book store where I got this little camel (made by women to help fund the zapatistas on the mainland).
The popsicles were so pretty.
A little ways up the road out of town is a nursery where they hand you scissors and you can cut your own bouquet of flowers.
The modern little hotelito stands in direct contrast to the old todos santos inn. A little away from town, up higher with a breeze, it’s a streamlined colorful spot with a great pool and really good food. That’s the owner Jenny coming through the the bougainvillea. She hosts themed evenings in the restaurant. We went for sushi night and it was honestly some of the best sushi I’ve ever had.
