Some travelers hope to visit a foreign place and be ushered into the special venues, relationships and experiences that are only known to the few who live there, who have made friends there, and can create access - who know what is worthy of your curiosity, time and leisure.

The creators of “The Baja Intimate Insider” are experienced North American tourism executives who have built their homes, friends, associates and life experiences in Baja. They will share it the way they know it and invite you to join in for the best there is.

We stay at only small, boutique hotels and inns; no massive resorts where you are lost in the crowd. Our guides are hand picked. You meet and interact with owners, artists, rancheros and chefs, and with a small group of like-minded travelers. You will quickly become an "Insider" here and you will never forget it.

After settling in you can explore the adjacent cathedral and town square with its many shops, galleries, dining and imbibing spots.

Day 3: Todos Santos & Local Flavor

After breakfast at Casa Natalia, head north along the Pacific coast in private Suburbans to experience the traditional way of life of the mountain rancheros in Baja. Meet local potters in a true mountain oasis, and learn how Baja Californians have carved their homes and livings out the mountains for centuries.

Admire the simple but impressive architecture of the area and, of course, view the work and art of the potters. Getting there is half the adventure, driving through the huge, dry arroyos and the beautiful desert roads that lead up into the Sierra de la Laguna mountains, passing through forests of cactus and desert life along the way.

Visit Doña Ramona and her family on their working ranch. While Ramona’s family puts together a delicious lunch for us, Ramona puts on a pottery class, imparting not only her tricks for working with the local clay, but also stories from her life in the mountains. Once you’ve created your own Baja pottery masterpiece, Doña Ramona takes us into the kitchen to teach us each how to make tortillas in the traditional style – absolutely fantastic! Lunch is typically several wonderful dishes, each made with fresh ranch ingredients.

After lunch tour the ranch. Check out Doña's kiln and her little ranchero chapel, for the visiting priest that comes to the village twice a month. Time and interest permitting, wind up the trip by visiting some potter neighbors before heading on to The Todos Santos Inn. Late afternoon is for exploring this “Pueblo Magico,” the colonial town of Todos Santos, founded in 1724, or for relaxing by the courtyard pool at Todos Santos Inn's historic hacienda sanctuary. Meet for a welcome libation early evening at the Inn‘s old world hacienda bar, then stroll to a memorable dinner at Landi's, our favorite place in Todos Santos for fine Mexican cuisine not often experienced "up North."

ACCOMMODATIONS: Todos Santos Inn or similar

MEALS: breakfast, lunch and dinner

After a delightful breakfast at the hotel, your docent guide escorts you to meet several wonderful artists in their studios and galleries. Then check into the legendary Hotel California where executive chef Dany Lamote personally instructs you in creating a fine meal together. In the hotel kitchen, Dany teaches us to prepare several courses for the meal, each of which can be served with a perfectly matched Baja wine. After a late afternoon siesta, enjoy the Milky Way in the night sky and an expert star talk, with champagne and a light picnic dinner, from a cliff-side vantage point overlooking the Pacific Ocean, away from town lights. Altogether a most memorable day and evening.

The 22-room Cabo Surf Hotel & Spa is perched on the rocks above the rolling waves of the Sea of Cortez. This is classic Cabo oceanfront living, and the concierge will arrange any of Cabo’s optional activities that you desire: the spa is available to you with its extensive menu of treatments (including half off your first treatment), and the palm-lined infinity pool and beach invite your relaxation. Professional surfing lessons are also available at the on-property surf school.
