In 1994, Michael and Pat Cope opened Galeria de Todos Santos. The gallery exhibits the artworks of Mexican and American artists. The creative pieces lure many visitors in. The landscapes, seascapes, realistic works, and abstract paintings evoke a plethora of emotions. In the sculpture garden there are sculptures made of wood, marble, and resin, and it’s the perfect environment for visitors to sense the mentality of the sculptors. Both contemporary and traditional art pieces can be found in Galeria de Todos Santos. The Cope family invites art enthusiasts to come and enjoy their exhibitions.

For bikers and biking enthusiasts, they organize mountain bike tours, and the instructors inform visitors about bike, helmet, and water safety.

For generations, the people of Todos Santos have been fond of fishing. In the area a diversity of fish species can be found: tuna, yellowtail, Dorado, marlin, snapper, grouper, and mackerel. From January to May, the yellowtail and mackerel are the best fish to catch, while the best time to catch a Dorado and marlin is during the summer. La Sirena Eco Adventures ensures the fisheries are sustained through ecotourism. For fishing enthusiasts, the charter company offers 24-feet pangas to cruise through the rich waters.
