Named in honor of Saint Christopher, patron of travelers, surfers, sailors and protector during long journeys, Hotel San Cristóbal sits on the beach on the southwestern edge of the Baja peninsula in Todos Santos, Mexico. Positioned along the Tropic of Cancer and framed by the Sierra de la Laguna mountains, Punta Lobos, and the Pacific Ocean, there is something about the quality of light here in this convergence of nature. It is a stop on the open road of Gray and Humpback whale migration and home to the stoic giant, the cardon cactus, as well as over 150 species of birds.

Local fishermen launch their small panga boats daily from the beach next to the hotel to harvest the sea’s bounty, and surprisingly abundant agriculture grows nearby. The cycles of the days and seasons, the sunrises, sunsets and tides, and the majesty of the night sky are the greatest amenities the hotel has to offer.

Hotel San Cristóbal consists of 32 rooms and suites situated around a central pool and lounge that were beautifully designed by architects Lake | Flato to complement the beauty of the surrounding nature. The intimate property is home to a restaurant and bar, as well as a library, a seaside mirador, and a small retail shop. Hotel San Cristobal welcomes guests ages 15 and over. The hotel has several spaces for celebrations and weddings from La Capilla, the hotel’s beautiful chapel and event hall, to the ruins of an antique abalone cannery at the east end of the property.

Evidence of life in Baja California Sur by nomadic tribes dates as far back as 11,000 B.C. By the time the Spanish first arrived in the 1500’s, they found the Pericú, Guaycura and Cochimí people living simply as hunter-gatherers with no agriculture and no metallurgy. These native tribes successfully resisted colonization for almost 200 years. The mission in Todos Santos was established in 1723 and quickly named Nuestra Señora del Pilar de la Paz for the town’s patron saint, the Virgin of Pilar, whose feast day is still celebrated annually on October 12.

In addition to the bountiful fishing that has been the mainstay of modern life here, the area around Todos Santos is a rich farmland that evolved from sugarcane crops in the 19th century to a diverse source of avocados, chilis, papayas and much more. You can smell the basil in the fields as you drive to Baja Beans in Pescadero.
