Sierra de la Laguna Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Cabo San Lucas may be known for its beaches, but the seaside town also offers adventure options that involve more land than sea. The Sierra de la Laguna mountain range, with its abundant oak and pine forests, is a rugged escape for those looking to explore the great outdoors. The Tropic of Cancer dissects the range; in other words, the area is tropical, but its elevation helps keep it relatively cool.
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.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The hike can be challenging without the help of an experienced guide.
- Remember to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
- Overnight base camp trips are available for those who want to explore the range in depth.
How to Get There
Located just north of Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range is accessible by car; simply head north on Highway 1, which encircles the mountain range, to reach the trailheads. Picacho de la Laguna is where most day trips and multi-day treks take place. Tours typically offer round-trip transportation from Todos Santos and San Jose del Cabo.
When to Get There
The most popular months to hike the mountain range are between November and early spring. Hurricane season can hit in August and continue into November, which is when the mountains experience heavy rains, so plan accordingly. Also, temperatures can drop below freezing at night in winter.
