You will find numerous trip packages offered which include beverages, guides, equipment and meals. You need only bring the camera, for the beauty is spectacular!



HIKING


Los Cabos offers a temperate climate and diverse terrain ideal for hiking, mountain biking, and a variety of other outdoor activities. Local tour companies are available to provide equipment rentals and guided excursions. This area of Baja offers a unique combination of landscapes to the outdoor adventurer. Hike into the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere reserve and experience the magic of cascading waterfalls in the spectacular cactus forests of this seldom visited desert wilderness. Bike to the hot springs above Santiago or along the unpaved seaside road of the East Cape. Or enjoy other outdoor activities including horseback riding, ATV-ing, kayaking, para sailing, bird-watching, jet skiing and sailing.

Sierra de Laguna is one of the most popular hiking spots for residents of the Cape area.There are numerous hiking trails and quite varied terrain depending on where you begin. Approaching from the west side is more direct, although a bit steeper than from Rancho San Dionisio. This hike from the west side can be completed round-trip in two days. The vegetation changes quickly along the way, from desert to forest, and the views of the sierra and of the Pacific Ocean are absolutely magnificent. The eastern trails into the sierra are more difficult to navigate, using a local guide is a must.


July through October rains have caused many floods which have been known to wash out hiking trails. The best backpacking season is late fall, after the rainy season, when the streams are full. The warmest temperatures are usually in May and June but in the sierra may only reach around 80 degrees, unlike the high temperatures of the coastal plains and desert at that time of year.

Make sure to have good footwear and plenty of water when hiking in Baja Sur area, as you may encounter a rocky terrain in some places. Since the climate is dry, you will probably need at least 2 liters of water per person for the day, depending on how hot the temperatures climb. The temperature cools down quite a bit at night, so make sure to have enough layers of clothing to be comfortable. You must be especially careful when hiking in Baja's desert lands. You will need twice as much water since it is so hot and dry. Good sun protection is also essential.
