What You Can Expect
Baja California is a unique place of natural wonders. It has around 70% of the cacti in Mexico and Mexico has 80% of the existing cacti of the world! In the middle of the desert, you can find an oasis of palm trees and rivers which stretch all the way to the seas. The Sea of Cortez on the east side is well known for its crystal clear waters and deserted island with amazing rock formations and white sandy beaches.
Departing from Los Cabos and accompanied by a professional bilingual guide, this trip will enrich your knowledge and understanding of the natural history and culture of the beautiful surrounding desert and sea. Journey through the past as you learn about the wonderful history of Baja in local Ranchos and explore the fossils of this area.
The tour will begin with pickup from the main lobby of your hotel. You'll then head to Santiago town to visit the La Zorra Canyon with its natural spring water. After this, you'll visit the fossils and a local ranch, where you'll have the opportunity to interact with the natives as they go about their day. A delicious lunch is included.
What a surprising oasis to find in the Baja desert! Fun to learn about the local plants and geography as we hiked the rocky trails through the canyons and along the waterfalls. Our guide, Casey, made this trip both an interesting and enjoyable experience. Thanks!
This half day trip was a lot of fun. There is some scrambling up and down rocks involved, so it would be a plus to wear hiking boots, although I did just fine in my trail running shoes. Our guide, Casey, was great! He was both knowedgable and personable. Great experience!
