Hotel Guaycura sits in the town of Todos Santos, one of Mexico
's so-called pueblos mágicos
, or “magical towns.” One of the reasons for this designation can be seen right on-property at the hotel itself: the building it occupies dates back to the 19th
century. Other period buildings in the town include a number of trapiches
, or sugar mills; Todos Santos' early fortunes were made from the sweet commodity. Design details in the rooms also evoke an earlier era, with exposed wood beams in the ceiling, handcrafted headboards on the beds, and, in some rooms, vintage copper bathtubs. All rooms have free Internet, L'Occitane toiletries, and flat-screen televisions with DVD players.
