Festival del Pilar (festival honoring the founding of Todos Santos and her patron saint Pilar, also known as Fiestas Tradicionales) is held in October with the coronation of the Queen of the Festival being usually occuring near October 11.
I would like to thank the Board of Directors of the Palapa Society of Todos Santos for their trust in electing me as their President. I look forward to an amazing new year and to the growth of our existing programs and to the creation of new ones. To coincide with our growth it is imperative that we enlist new committed members to the board as well as volunteers to help us reach our goals. The future of Todos Santos is in the hands of its children. It is my commitment to the Palapa Society to do everything possible to help educate and enlighten the future leaders of our town. We can not vary that course. All of us at the Palapa Society of Todos Santos invite you to come and see for yourselves how you can help make a difference in the lives of our children, because that is what it's all about.
-- Erick Ochoa, President Palapa Society of Todos Santos

Condolences from all of Todos Santos to the family and friends of John Stewart, the mover behind the resurgence of the Hotel California. With the help of his wife Debbie and manager Alejandro Blanco, they made the Hotel California the number one tourist attraction in Todos Santos. John passed away on September 1, 2006.
Todos Santos sits beside the Pacific coast and straddles the Tropic of Cancer, one hour north of Cabo San Lucas and one hour southwest of La Paz. The Sierra de La Laguna mountains, Pacific Ocean and the Baja desert all meet here.
Some come to surf the many fine breaks that the area offers.
Some come to view the amazing variety of original art in the local galleries.
Some come to experience the Tropic of Cancer and the iridescent sunsets.
Some come to walk the nearly deserted beaches, not yet developed, no condos to be found.
Some come to absorb the gentle pace - the slow persistent calming pace of life.
Some come to visit, and never leave.
Todos Santosis not Cabo San Lucas. No time shares, no strip clubs, no jet skis, no beach vendors, no traffic. Just a relaxed style of living that is very hard to find in the hectic 21st century.
If you are ready to get away, then this calm oasis might just be the place you have been looking for. Check back frequently as we are adding original quality content as fast as we can.
