Sierra de la Laguna

Los Cabos, Mexico

The Basics

This Baja California mountain range offers a wealth of hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, climbing, and bouldering activities to satisfy even the most ardent outdoors enthusiast. Picacho de la Laguna is considered the range’s highest peak at 7,090 feet (2,161 meters), and many travelers come to hike its slopes. Guided hikes through the Sierra de La Laguna Biosphere Reserve are considered challenging by some; if you can swing it, you’ll enjoy an up-close look at the region’s flora and fauna.

A magical place
It is a very beautiful, magical and unique place with a fascinating ecology. Our guide, Danny, was enthusiastic, thoughtful and knowledgeable about the plant species, history of the area and the Pericu people.

Cabo’s Remarkable Eco-friendly Experience
George_D, Feb 2020
Walk the native Pericu road in Sierra de la Laguna.
A perfect day-hike on the pristine Boca de la Sierra out-back trail! Delicious wood-fired home-cooked breakfast and visit with a nearby ranchero family. Swim and marvel in the San Bernardo stream and water holes. And share the joy, eco-knowledge, and safety-first leadership that Danny Perez (our certified tour-guide) brings to this remarkable Cabo-best experience.

100% recommend! Highlight of our trip

Walk the native Pericu road in Sierra de la Laguna.
I am going to leave a really detailed review because the guides Danny and Nacho (nickname) really deserve it! I went with a private group of 4 and we all would 100% recommend it. This is definitely the highlight of our time in Cabo San Lucas. A gorgeous nature reserve with so many spots to swim - even under a small waterfall! Our guides were very knowledgeable, kind, and helpful on our hike. Danny has been leading these tours for 10+ years so you will be in good hands. On our way we stopped at a picturesque oasis and a local ice cream stand. They led us on a hike starting at 4PM as they recommended. We were a bit hesitant that it would be too late but honestly so glad we went at this time. Our hike was bright and it was not beaming hot at this time like it usually is (but the pictures are still bright - just without the sun directly above us since the mountains covered it). We felt safe overall. Seeing the starry night sky after dinner was lovely. It was about an hour and a half drive from our resort (Riu Palace Baja California) so three hours is transportation time total. The actual hike is about three hours and then another hour for dinner. We were back at 11pm. We had horchata (a sweet rice drink) and fish tacos - dinner was fantastic. Really flavourful and homemade tasting cooked by locals on the reserve. This was a very memorable hike - I loved swimming in the fresh water pools and seeing the landscape which looks super ancient and cool (the area is untouched and is 40 million years old!). The palm trees looked ancient and the granite rocks were surprisingly colourful. In terms of wildlife, we saw lizards, wild cows, birds and fish. We learned that this is home to the smallest hummingbird in the world (we didn’t see it, but you might!). If you are not convinced to go by now I don’t know what to tell you. BEST HIKE EVER!!!!! Thank you so much Danny and Nacho!

Sierra de la Laguna Hiking and Natural Springs Swim with Waterfalls
What a magical Oasis. Danny was by far the best guide. So experienced, encouraging, knowledgeable, and fun. Wish I could give him 100 stars for this epic adventure.

Great Cabo getaway

Walk the native Pericu road in Sierra de la Laguna.
Enjoyed our experience. Nice getaway from tourist areas. Danny was great. Be warned that it is a pretty uneven terrain with some rock scrabbling. Danny helped us through some of more difficult spots. We are moderately fit 50+ and found it just challenging enough to feel accomplished when done but not overly exerted. A couple of beautiful swimming holes. Also had a nice home style meal at the local ranch. Would recommend for anyone wanting to get away from beach, tourist, and see/experience nature.
