If there’s one thing we love about destination weddings, it’s the experimentation and the search for locations that become the perfect place to see the beginning of a love story.
Todos Santos is the ideal example of everything that can be built around such a special date, a place in the Baja California peninsula that has become a charming place for couples looking to enjoy the Mexican essence and, at the same time, a fascinating town with many options to create the best experience for you, your partner, and your guests.
Todos Santos is the best option to have a wedding or elopement in Baja California Sur, and best of all, its atmosphere is perfect for relaxed couples who love arts and who are looking for a delicious gastronomic experience.
Celebrating your destination wedding in Todos Santos can be the most fascinating experience in your life.
The best season to celebrate an event in this place is from October to June, months in which you will be able to enjoy an extraordinary weather and an endless number of activities to complement the experience around your wedding.
Remember that the most important thing in the planning of that special day also has to do with the happenings before or after the wedding, so it is vital not only to find a charming wedding venue that goes with the style of your event but also spaces or hot spots that are part of that experience. This will not only make your wedding day perfect, but also make everyone remember it as a trip full of memories, incredible touristic sites, sunsets, and very emotional experiences.
Where is Todos Santos?
Todos Santos is on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, the land immediately south of the United States and separated from mainland Mexico by the Sea of Cortez.
It is located in the municipality of La Paz, Baja California Sur state, about 2 miles away from the Pacific Ocean. Designated by the Mexican government as a “pueblo magico” (Magic village), Todos Santos is located 50 miles from the city of La Paz and 53 miles of the city of Cabo San Lucas, heading to the north. The Tropic of Cancer crosses exactly over Todos Santos.
You reach Todos Santos flying to the Airport at La Paz or San Jose del Cabo (Los Cabos), and then driving either south or north, respectively, on Highway 19.

Dum and Paradero, two wedding venues in Todos Santos, Mexico
Although Todos Santos has incredible spaces to celebrate a wedding in Baja California Sur, these two venues are some of our favorites.
Dum, for example, can transport you from the desert to a tropical area full of palm trees in seconds. The touch of haute cuisine gives it a bonus so you can pamper all your guests with a delicious banquet. This wedding venue is located inside Rancho Corazón and has different areas for events, Dum restaurant being the most important one.
The best thing is that you can rent different fractions of the ranch to celebrate your wedding, depending on the number of guests you will have.
Paradero is another of the hot spots Todos Santos has for your wedding in Baja California Sur. This hotel is in the middle of the desert, its minimalist architecture makes it a beauty, although its rustic design also stands out. It also has incredible views of the mountains and orchards. A true haven of peace.
Among the favorite areas are the pool for the ceremony and the restaurant area for the reception. Every detail is beautiful and unique.
The type of events we love to design here is bohemian weddings with an eclectic spirit, weddings inspired by the desert, cacti, and the natural beauty of the locations.
