Just as we were going to press, we heard that Paradero Todos Santos, a 35-suite hotel, will open on January 15, 2021 in Mexico. Less than 50 miles from San Jose del Cabo Airport, Todos Santos is being promoted as having 355 days of sunshine per year in an area that has become increasingly popular as a relaxed surf town. The new property is spread across five acres of land in an agricultural area comprising 160 acres of family-owned farms.
Nature lovers rejoice: Thanks to its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, the immediate landscape here has five distinct ecosystems — the desert with 200-year-old Cardon Cacti, the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range, miles of virgin beaches along the Pacific coast and a far-reaching landscape with 5,000 palm trees and farmland. Because of this diversity, UNESCO has designated Todos Santos as a Biosphere Reserve — one of only two such sites in Baja.
Paradero Hotels’ long-term plan has been to expand its “experience-inclusive” brand throughout additional unspoiled destinations in Mexico. What are those experiences? Surfing for different levels at Cerritos or San Pedrito beach, guided hiking and mountain biking along the bluffs of the Pacific coast, private beach set up on unspoiled locations, hands-on farming tutorials, and Baja taco tours, which are all included in the nightly rate. Trails throughout the property will also be marked for self-guided running and biking around the farms and gardens. A sample of other activities include boating and fishing expeditions, cooking classes, cliffside champagne and burrito tastings.
We’ll be bringing you more on this new property, but for now we can reveal that the Ojo de Agua Spa will have a focus on ancient Mexican healing traditions. Hot and cold plunge pools, as well as a relaxation area, will round out the offerings. For details on booking, contact Baltazar Gomez ([email protected]), the sales and marketing manager.
