Vogue: Todos Santos


''Still others come to while away the hours at the iconic Hotel California’s long wooden bar, which, contrary to local lore, is not the same lovely place named in the Eagles song.''

Very sad. Vogue? Conde Nast, New York Times! I've lived here 19yrs since retirement and never thot the changes would come so fast. Different people...lots of Newbies with little Spanish or knowledge of Mex Culture. They will find out tho that this is a Baja town. Not Napa/Sonoma. Have your Latte today, Lee? Chocolate cake? Soo decadent. Smiles. Tio

Tio, amigo.....I know it may seem like just yesterday when you retired but 19 years ain't fast. However, the development of Cabo certainly accelerated the development of Todos.

Just spotted this article from "Dezeen" magazine about the Hotel San Cristobal at Punta Lobos in Todos Santos. Tres chic.

YIKES !!!!

please tell me that the hotel is NOT where the pangeros launched their pangas and when they came back, they cleaned their catch right there on the beach.

also, there was a lagoon that had a religious feature.

if so, where did the fishermen relocate to ?

mil gracias,

BIEN SALUD, DA RAT

there goes the neighborhood..."The hotel also has its own boutique, which sells local artisan-made products like beachwear, clothing and souvenirs. Rooms start from around $285 (£220) per night."

:wow: Sad !



In that pre-Google Earth and social media epoch, The Code was adhered to. It was based on a simple verity: if a locale had been transformational for you, and you had put the hard yards in to get there and to learn it, to know it, why in god�s name would you broadcast the news, thus ruining the future experience not only for yourself, but for future adventurers?
