A Day in the Sierra La Laguna
Escape the city and head off-the-beaten-track to the Sierra La Laguna mountain range. Hike through and learn about the stunning landscape and meet local ranchers on their working organic farm.
Today you’ll head out of Los Cabos with a naturalist guide via Highway #1, crossing marine terraces created by the gradual accumulation of sediment more than 25 million years ago, now known as the Baja California Desert.
Approaching the foot of the Sierra La Laguna, your expert naturalist guide will navigate the dry riverbed canyon, whilst sharing the theories as to how the Baja peninsula came into existence and explaining how the plants and animals that populate it have adapted to survive in the ever-changing eco-systems that make up Baja California. Your destination at the end of the canyon drive is a traditional mountain ranch, owned and run by a local family who are descendants of generations of Santiago Mexicans. Their ranch is considered to be one of the best in the region, producing coriander, basil, potatoes, cherry tomatoes, green beans, mango, guava, avocado and much more.
There’s plenty of time to hike amongst the beautiful canyons and waterfalls of the Sierra La Laguna although relaxing at the ranch and enjoying the beauty of the place at your own leisure is of course also an option. If you choose to hike, you’ll learn about the biosphere that the Pericue Indians called home and encounter the fascinating indigenous flora and fauna, all the while with over 100 years-old metamorphic rock underfoot!
At the end of the hike, enjoy a delicious lunch prepared at the ranch with their home-grown ingredients. The day can be tailored to you: the amount of time you spend hiking, swimming in waterfalls or lazing at the ranch is all flexible so please speak to your guide at the outset. The tour lasts for approximately 8 hours.
