Vanity Fair has called Todos Santos "flip flop funky" and the town definitely has a unique boho vibe—maybe even more so since a Canadian couple renovated and reopened the infamous "Hotel California" here (while it's never been proven that the Eagles song was written about the hotel, it's a local legend that continues to be repeated). The small and artsy "Pueblo Magico" of Todos is a colonial town that boomed as a sugarcane center until underground springs went dry. The opening of a nearby highway brought the town back to life, and soon expats and artists followed. A common refrain you’ll hear is that it's like Taos and Santa Fe before the tourists took over. Don't miss a visit to the Todos Santos Centro Cultural, an old schoolhouse turned museum where you can see local artifacts and murals painted by socialist students emulating their compatriots Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
