The Mexican Government recently selected Todos Santos as a "Pueblo Magico", distinguishing it as one of over 20 magical towns of Mexico that possesses historical, cultural, and architectural significance. Many who choose to settle in Todos Santos immediately fall in love with the town’s unique charm. Home to a thriving art community and cultural center, Todos Santos’ major thoroughfares are lined with colonial buildings, art galleries and a myriad of shops.

Todos Santos’s exceptional land value, eclectic culture, and spectacular views have drawn a growing number of American expatriates. Property prices in Todos Santos’ beautiful beachside communities are rising steadily as this once sleepy region north of Cabo San Lucas is being developed to full potential. Two international airports serve this area: La Paz International Airport (1 hour drive) and Los Cabos International Airport (1.5 hour drive).
