Blink while flying down the newly paved highways and you could miss Todos Santos. A sleepy little fishing town with the laid back attitude of a sun-bleached surfer. The polar opposite of the nearby Cabo San Lucas. The arid desert landscapes look most unforgiving, dotted with huge saguaro cacti standing well over 10 feet tall. What I found most striking about the Baja coastline is the contrast of red desert earth and the lush oasis of crystal clear ocean water. From those waters every morning I would watch the locals in small boats, painted bright hues of sky blue and turquoise, bring in the daily haul. The freshest of fish paired with a hand rolled corn tortilla, an ice cold cerveza pacifico, and a fluorescent pink sunset, became my daily ritual. If I had three wishes there’s not much else I could ask for.
