Todos Santos Camping Recommendation


To piggyback on bajafreaks post -

We'll be doing the same in May and then would like to head to Todos Santos for some tent camping - recommendations? Ideas?

John, if you see this in Guerrero Negro or elsewhere, check your u2u and email regarding your satellite phone call. Hope you and Barb are having fun!

Todos Santos Camping


My dog & I camped at the Turtle Sanctuary in 2017. The lady who runs the sanctuary is American.
If you agree to volunteer at the sanctuary she will allow you to camp outside the sanctuary property. There were other people doing the same in vans.
That area can be noisy at times on the weekend with kids coming there so be sure you have earplugs. http://www.todostortugueros.org/
It is a great place to witness watching the turtles emerge from the nests and liberating them at night.
She has accommodations in town but (from what people told me) they are not worth the price.
Todos Santos is a tough place to find budget accommodations. I found Booking.com & Google search had the most reasonable prices around $37/night.

I haven't been there in a few years but I think you can camp on the beach at San Pedrito, south of TS and a touch north of El Pescadero. Maybe someone has more recent info.

That entire coast from Todos Santos all the way to Cabo is quickly developing and there are very few open campsites left. I camped in one place south of Todos Santos which said it was a day use only so I paid the caretaker 250 mxn/day to camp there. It was a really nice place but you have to first talk to the caretaker when he is around in order to camp overnight. I did this in 2017 so I bet there are even fewer places now due to development.
