Fishing and parasailing is what we do every time we go. And we always spend a wondering around town so the wife can go through the shops.

If you have a car drive north towards Todos Santos one day. Miles and miles of beautiful deserted beaches and Todo's Santos is a cool little town.

Casa Dorado is right behind the Mango Deck and has an excellent spot on Medano beach. That area is swimable. You have Edith's and the Office right down the way, which are great places to eat / drink. There is also a great restaurant right across the street called Bar Esquina, that usually has live music during the evening and wonderful food. It's a short walk to the marina and touristy area. I wouldn't be concerned one bit walking in that area. Have an amazing trip!!

I was just there last month. Make reservations now! They have limited capacity at all restaurants and bars. FYI, it’s cleaner than the states down there and they take Covid pretty serious.

Flora Farms if you want to get a driver. Its worth it. Edith's, There is a little restaurant if you go out the door and go left up the hill, on the right awesome breakfast! Monkey business is great for margies. If you don't like the vibe at Mango deck or get tired of the vendors the hotel has a good area on the sand for guests only. Mama's cafe for breakfast Pozole is also the bomb!

#1 activity is always sit at the pool and eat/drink. What I like to do is rent snorkle gear drive out to the beach that's 7-8 miles outside of town. I usually go in the morning and I'm done by lunch. I think its called Chileano bay. I drove to Todos Santos and there is a surf beach with a restaraunt on the beach they will serve you drinks and lunch and there is hardly anyone there. Thats Cerritos beach. Take a panga to Lover's beach. I like to go fishing out of San Jose Del Cabo and also walk the downtown shopping area there and get dinner. I prefer San Jose Del Cabo anyway its more relaxing environment so if you want a change of pace you can try that but its pretty far from Cabo.

They get nailed by Hurricane Olaf a few days ago and it's back to business as usual already ? Guess they've got the place far more hardened against storms then the back in the days when only fisherman went there.
Have a great time 👍 👍 👍

Dinner at the trailer park if its still there
The Trailer Park was excellent. But, I believe it’s long gone. Daughter and SIL went recently to Cabo. They snorkeled out by the Arch. Said there was considerable surge and the visibility wasn’t too good. But, overall they had a good time. Make sure your passport doesn’t expire until long after your trip.

I lived for 2 months at San Pedrito RV park just south of Todos Santos.
Had a tent site with a Palapa...$2 a day.
The hotel California is in todos Santos

It is still there. At least is was last winter. Make sure to tell the taxi to take you to the right one. The original trailer park is La Golondrina. Make reservations.

There’s a sushi/seafood place in town called Wasabe’s. Great food and very reasonably priced!

Enjoy your trip!

I had a timeshare there when it was built. Edith's is next door really good food, office right outside of gate, fun afternoon and stumble home. I had some local pick me up few days out of the week on beach in a smaller boat and fished local shores. Mi casa for Mexican food. Take glass bottom to arch and snorkel rock area to left, lots of fish.

Take in the sunset from The Rooftop at The Cape Hotel. Great outside lounge, music, drinks, and small plate food and one the the best places around to watch the sun go down with your sweetie.

Opens at 6pm and you want to get there in plenty of time before sunset to get a good seat.

On the way to Cabo from the airport in San Jose there is a little place to eat called Sardina Cantina. It has been 8 years but it had the best tortilla soup ever I think about it all the time.
