Pueblo Mágico is a title given to certain towns in Mexico that are, well, magical. Not in a broomstick and cauldron kind of way, but in a more experiential way. That is towns that exhibit a great sense of natural beauty, rich history, and culture. One such place is Todos Santos, awarded the title in 2006. When you see images of this place it’s easy to see why it’s been officially recognised as being “magical”. Its natural beauty is phenomenal; all crashing blue waves of the Pacific Ocean on one side and beautiful mountainscapes on the other. Then you get to the man made stuff, like the incredible Hotel San Cristóbal.
The highly photogenic hotel was opened earlier this year by Bunkhouse, who are responsible for a slew of unique accommodation offerings in the USA. Hotel San Cristóbal, their first hotel outside of the States, was designed in collaboration with architecture firm Lake Flato. It’s a truly spectacular design that favours clean white backdrops punctuated with bursts of bright colours and patterns, but mostly it allows the spectacular surrounding natural beauty to take centre stage.
The boutique hotel has 32 rooms, as well as a large central pool, bar, restaurant, library, and a little shop selling locally made products.
