Weather and Climate

Todos Santos has a pleasant, temperate climate a good nine months of the year. Due to the town's location on the Pacific Ocean, it is almost always 10 degrees cooler here than in La Paz or Cabo San Lucas.

Todos Santos Evening Sunset

The weather in Todos Santos is strongly affected by the Pacific Ocean currents, producing seasonal variations which are somewhat unexpected. April, May and sometimes even June, for example, are often cooler than February and March, because the California current produces chilly morning fogs. The ocean temperature is at its lowest then and at its highest from July through November.

August, September and October are chubasco months. The hurricanes and tropical storms spin up from the south and sometimes hit land instead of whirling out into the Pacific Ocean. These are usually hot and humid months during which many local gringos head north to escape the heat and visit their families.

But because Todos Santos does not have a typical northern summer-winter climate does not mean that is has no distinct seasons. A mere temparture table cannot give a true picture of them. The level of moisture in the air, the presence or absence of insects and greenery, and the pervading fragrances, sounds and sights all powerfully affect one's perception of temperature.

Todos Santos is located on the Tropic of Cancer in the southern portion of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico just one hour
north of Cabo San Lucas and one hour south of La Paz. Long known as a cultural, artistic and agricultural center, the
town is a desert oasis, 1 kilometer from the Pacific Ocean at the foothills of the Sierra de La Laguna mountains. Since
the mid 1980's, the area has become a tourist / retirement destination and home to numerous art galleries, artists,
fine restaurants, elegant hotels, unique vacation rentals and local festivals.
