Town Visits

Though Prana del Mar itself is rather remote – out at the beach surrounded by the mountains and the desert – you can still head off on excursions to some local towns of interest for a bit of exploration.

 

Todos Santos is a small town to the north that was recently awarded that status of Pueblo Mágico – Magic Village. It’s a quaint artist community known for its galleries and relaxed vibe. With a central plaza, a church, several shops, a nice mix of cafés and restaurants, and the famed Hotel California, it’s a great place to spend a leisurely afternoon.

 

San Jose del Cabo is a moderately-sized Mexican town with a colonial past. It is a nice place to stroll the plaza, visit the church, shop along the main boulevard and its adjacent streets, and browse the growing number of local art galleries. There is also an option to visit Flora Farms for lunch. Flora is an organic farm with a lovely restaurant located about 10 minutes outside of town and almost everything they serve is fresh-picked directly from the premises. This trip has become a guest favorite.

 

And, of course, there is the notorious Cabo San Lucas. The natural beauty of the area surrounding this tourist-focused town at the tip of the Baja peninsula is undeniable. The distinctive Cabo Arch positioned at Land’s End is its signature landmark and worth seeing, along with its resident sea lion colony, if you visit. The marina is lively, as is the main drag where you will find many bars, restaurants, and several nightclubs. Be forewarned that it is very touristy, but if you’re in the right mood, then it may be worth a visit. If you’re seeking a more relaxed and authentic experience however, we would encourage you to opt for San Jose or Todos Santos.
