There’s plenty of great stuff to see, plenty of great places to stay, and getting here is a breeze. Here’s some information to help get you started on your Todos Santos travel getaway, and be sure to contact us if we can help you make your plans.
You can catch a nonstop flight to Cabo or La Paz from twenty cities in the US and Western Canada, and it’s a short drive on modern roads to reach town. If you fly into Cabo, prepare to be cajoled by the locals at the airport trying to sell you taxi rides or tours. If you’re not interested, just keep walking, smile, and say “no gracias.” Don’t stress about everything being in Spanish; there is plenty of English spoken here.
You can rent a car and make the drive yourself (it’s about an hour from La Paz and an hour and a half from the Cabo airport), take a cab, or arrange for a driver. If you’ve hired a driver to/from the airport, it is customary to tip 20 US dollars or 200 pesos, each way.
Let us know if you’d like us to arrange transportation for your Todo Santos travel. Tres Santos team member Mayra Serna will help set it up for you from either the La Paz or Cabo San Lucas airports, just send your flight information to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate you giving us as much advance notice as you can.
If you’d like to have a car while you’re here, we encourage reserving a rental car with Budget located just a couple doors down from the Tres Santos offices in Todos Santos. To reserve a car you can contact Mayra for that also (email@example.com) or e-mail Budget directly at Centro.TodoSantos@BudgetPacifico.com.
