Curator’s statement

Los Cabos has been a go-to destination for travelers for decades. And while Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo have their own identities, I suggest after landing at SJD, taking a slightly different route for your next trip. Roughly an hour from the airport, the region that encompasses, Todos Santos, Pescadero and Cerritos Beach is not to be missed. With boutique hotels, charming streets, beautiful beaches and an expansive culinary scene, there truly is something for everyone in Todos Santos, Mexico.

Hierbabuena (Cerritos) - A true foodie lovers dream. Sit amongst the garden while chefs prepare fresh and local dishes that appeal to all tastes and ages.

DUM at Rancho Corazon (Todos Santos) - A five minute walk from downtown Todos Santos, but feels like you're worlds away. Nestled under a Palm Tree grove, this place is relaxing from the moment you walk in. It serves delicious local Mediterranean cuisine in a tranquil setting. Hilltop dinning with views for days.

Jazamango (Todos Santos) - I don't typically eat pizza when I am in Mexico, but if I do, it better taste the way it does from Jazamangos wood fire oven.

El Faro Beach Club & Spa (Todos Santos) - What dreams are made of! If your dreams consist of eating tacos beach/poolside with attentive staff and delicious margaritas.

Barracuda Cantina (Cerritos)- Best. Shrimp. Tacos. Ever.
