Baja California Sur!

In honor of our 1 year anniversary, I thought I'd document a few memories from our trip to Baja California Sur for our honeymoon! It was truly the best time. ☀️



We stayed at Hotel San Cristóbal in this magical little town called Todos Santos. It was lovely. The hotel is a small boutique spot operated by Bunkhouse. They basically are the only property on this sliver of beach and they have a beautiful view of the mountains of Baja and the rocky waterfront.


During our stay we mostly sat by the pool and ordered drinks & snacks there, but we also spent a couple afternoons on the beach front. The staff would bring down chairs & umbrellas and you could take drinks down there too.


Our room was the king suite on the corner! They ended up upgrading us for our honeymoon and offered a bottle of champagne on arrival. The room had an amazing outdoor shower as well and a balcony with a view of the water.


In the mornings we would put robes on and head down to the pool deck to grab coffee & sit on the beach deck to watch the waves. Those are some of our favorite memories. The hotel was so small we really didn't see many other guests during our stay.


Places to stay:


Hotel San Cristóbal - Obviously biased, but we couldn't recommend it enough.


Acre - This is over in Cabo, but they have cool looking tree houses!


La Bohemia - In-town option to be closer to the magic of Todos Santos.

We rented a Jeep at the airport in Cabo when we arrived. After some research, we decided we wanted the option to drive ourselves so we could do some excursions in Todos Santos.


The town is super cute. And safe. They have this adorable strip with papel picado flags lined with adorable shops, art galleries & restaurants.



Places to eat:


La Esquina - We went twice. It was amazing. They had the best chilaquiles for breakfast and fresh squeezed juice. Divine.


Jazzamango - Romantic outdoor dinner vibes and delish food.


Benno - Restaurant at Hotel San Cristóbal. Really great breakfast IMO.


Baja Beans Roasting Company - Cute outdoor coffee spot with a great quiche. They also grow coffee beans at a farm right across the street.


Flora Farms - Adorable farm-to-table restaurant. We went for a late lunch and the drinks and food was amazing. You can also walk around the property and explore.


Tamarindos - Our favorite! Less touristy and known than Flora Farms. We ordered like 3 margs each and chowed down on our last night.


Everything in Todos Santos is connected by dirt roads. That was part of the fun to us. When we describe the place to our friends, we call it the Marfa of Mexico. Because it was our honeymoon we were pretty content relaxing at the hotel, but if you know Luke, you know he likes "activities." Luckily there were a few great things to do!


Things to do:


Dune Buggy - Black Sheep Motor Sports is basically the only place in town to rent buggys. The guy who owns it speaks English which was a plus, but it was a bit of an adventure to get him payment as his card reader wasn't working. That aside, the buggy itself was a blast! There are so many back roads to explore and he gave us a map so we wouldn't get too lost. However, the route he recommended was blocked by a gate. Not his fault, but ruined the experience a little. All things considered, we felt like it was a worthwhile experience and we had a blast switching off driving and riding.


Hiking - There is an amazing hike right behind Hotel San Cristóbal. It takes you along coastal ruins and up into jagged rocks that overlook the ocean. It was amazing.


Yoga - There was also a deck right behind the hotel to practice yoga. We mostly used it to do our own little workouts.



Cheers to a little honeymoon recap! 💍Trying to convince Luke to take me back!
