Hotel recognized as a historic structure
Yolanda Cardenas says that the Baja California community of Todos Santos is an enchanting step back into Mexico’s past.
And that holds true for her Todos Santos hotel as well.
Cardenas is the general manager of the Guaycura Boutique Hotel Beach Club & Spa, a 14-room property found in the center of Todos Santos, which attracts many expatriates.
“Todos Santos is a walk back into the 18th century,” she says of a “Mexican Bohemian” destination that has one of the missions built by the Spanish centuries ago but is also home to art galleries that help draw visitors from afar.
“You feel totally off the beaten path,” she continues of a destination that offers the likes of yoga on the beach.
The Todos Santos area also attracts surfers, with Cerritos Beach in particular popular with those seeking waves.
Baja is known for its desert scenery but Cardenas notes a Todos Santos oasis provides greenery.
Cardenas describes the Guaycura Boutique Hotel as “Mexican contemporary” and a structure whose architecture recalls Todos Santos’ past, with the 19th-century brick structure being recognized as a historic building by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History.
Visitors will find a choice of bars, including a rooftop one.
Guest rooms have Mexican decor.
Hotel guests are invited to use the property’s El Faro Beach Club & Spa, which has the likes of an infinity pool, grill and bar, and spa treatments.
Guaycura’s El Mirador restaurant provides views of the ocean..
Hotel guests will find it easy to explore Baja California, with Todos Santos being around 50 minutes from Los Cabos’ airport and around 30 from La Paz’s airport.
