Cabo is known for its pristine beaches, but if you’ve come to this seaside town looking for an outdoor adventure, you won’t be disappointed. Poised on the cape of the Baja California at precisely 23.5 degrees latitude, the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range is the rugged escape for those visiting Cabo San Lucas and looking to explore the great outdoors. See the surrounding landscape and explore the area’s granite peaks and oak and pine forests; this Baja Californian mountain range offers a wealth of hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, climbing, and bouldering to satisfy even the most ardent outdoorsman. A variation from the quiet beaches of Cabo, the Tropic of Cancer literally dissects the Sierra de la Laguna range and so though tropical, the elevation keeps the climate relatively cool – and that makes for great for outdoor fun.
Picacho de la Laguna is considered the range’s highest peak at 7,090 feet, and many come to the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range to hike its slopes. A wonderful example of the rugged beauty that awaits visitors to the Cabo San Lucas area, exploration of this unexploited natural preserve and its rocky cliffs help to complete a relaxing yet adventurous outdoor vacation.
Located just north of Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of Baja California, reach this pristine mountain range by heading north on Highway 1, which encircles the mountain range. Bring your passport and papers.
