One of the special features of Baja is that it is still somewhat undiscovered in comparison with other vacation destinations. Yet, some beaches are more crowded than others, and if you’re looking for a deserted beach to chill, I know the perfect place: Los Cerritos. “Cerritos” means little hills and its name comes from its unique location throughout the hills along the Pacific.
It is located on highway 19, just take a turn off at km 65 and discover the wonders of Los Cerritos. It’s approximately an hour away from Cabo San Lucas and 15 minutes away from Todos Santos. Los Cerritos is in the small town El Pescadero. And although the town might be tiny, no worries, it has everything you need to enjoy an unforgettable vacation. Some of the most popular hotels include Hacienda Cerritos, Cerritos Surf Town and Cerritos Beach Hotel. They offer relaxing pools, comfortable rooms or villas, great food, refreshing drinks, spa services, and overall a great time! But if you don’t want to stay at a hotel there are many other options for lodging, such as condos and a variety of vacation rentals.
Los Cerritos’ prime possession is its supreme waves. They are becoming famous worldwide as one the of the best waves to surf in the Pacific. What makes them so special is that they are “surfable” year round, although the locals say the best waves are on Winter and Spring. Also, there’s no need to be an expert to ride these waves. Los Cerritos has relatively calm waters for all kinds of surfers from beginners to experts. Learn and show off your best surfing skills in Cerritos’ turquoise freezing waters! An if you’re a beginner, there are several surf schools to help you achieve your surfing goals─Mario Surf School, CRT Surf School and Costa Azul Surf Shop to name a few. These schools have been specializing in surfing for over 15 years and they “love what they do and do what they love” year round. You will be standing and riding the waves in no time! They give you everything you need to know regarding safety and fun while on your board, and you can also rent surfboards, longboards, skimboards, boogieboards, beach umbrellas, and chairs.

Enjoy beach walks, jet ski tours, volleyball, horse-back riding along the beach, ATV adventures, bike rentals, spear fishing, kayaking, whale watching, or simply chill in the sand with a cold drink in one hand.

Another unique aspect of Cerritos is its sand, which has particular shades of black, gold, and hazel, and is very different from the typical pristine white sands Baja offers.
