AHORA : happening now at TDT

Panorama_Taller de Terreno_Desertico verde.jpg

Located 15 kilometers north up the coast from Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Taller De Terreno Arts + Wellness Center is a destination site for artist residencies, immersive workshops and symposiums.

TDT was founded in 2017 by Christa Assad and Kevin Wickham, a dynamic artist-duo whose shared desire to sustain a healthy, outdoor-based lifestyle led them to the pueblo mágico of Todos Santos. 

The topography and natural resources of this tropical desert location supported Kevin’s architectural plans for a site with passive and sustainable design systems. The couple have dedicated their home, workshop and garden spaces to be experiential for visitors.

"We're creating a sanctuary for learning in a cross-disciplinary, think tank context. In a sustainable ranch setting, participants exchange ideas, practice wellness, and work toward assimilating the built environment into the natural one.”

Phase II plans include expanded guest accommodations and workshop space for all mediums. Phase III: Museo.

Taller de Terreno will participate in the 11th Annual Todos Santos Open Studio tour, held the weekend of February 8 - 9, 2020, from 10 am to 4 pm Saturday + Sunday. Visit TDT’s innovative, sustainable architecture and shop contemporary ceramics, painting, wood-working and more. Proceeds benefit the children’s art programs at The Palapa Society of Todos Santos.

…but follow the signs once you’re close ~ Google Maps wants you to turn one street too soon!

Camino A Las Playitas


Todos Santo

Baja California Sur, Mexico

DIRECCIONES ~directions:

Our location is not always marked correctly on maps! Once you leave Todos Santos and head north on Calle Las Playitas, follow the handmade signs for Taller de Terreno about 15 km north along the coast. Past La Pastora + Villa Santa Cruz + the new Green Room beach bar + resto…

Todos Santo is our nearby artists' community and locator for your adventure in southern Baja. Read about it here in Vogue Magazine (5/21/17)!

Here's how to get there: 


airport  :  NOUN  :   masculine    

We recommend flying into Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), or alternatively, La Paz (LAP). Southwest is a great carrier to try. Renting a car from Cactus Rent-a-Car is a great option if you like your independence (and we know you do). Watch out for tricky car rental contracts that don't add on the "mandatory insurance" until you arrive at the counter with your reservation in hand. We strongly recommend Cactus for their straight-up $50/day plan! There is also an express shuttle into Todos Santos with EcoBajaTours. They have air conditioned buses with free wifi. It will take you to the bus station in town located on Coleglia Militar. If you buy tickets online make sure to purchase them from San Jose to Todos Santos.
