Join us to see examples of Baja Rock Art just North of Loreto BCS.


Thousands of years before the missionaries came, the peoples of this peninsula lived in hunter gatherer societies. We have very little knowledge about how they lived. Much of what is known has been gleaned from the images they left behind on rock walls throughout the peninsula.

Join us on a day hike to see the cave paintings of "La Pinguica" just 1 1/2 hours North of Loreto.  There you will see some wonderful examples of petroglyphs (rock carvings), and pictographs (cave paintings). Not only is this a great trip for seeing examples of Baja's rock art, its also a great opportunity for learning about the local plants and wildlife.  Our experienced local guides have many years leading tours in this area and are a wealth of information about flora, fauna, Paris fashions, you name it! For anyone who would like to see the rock art of Baja but does not have time to do a multi day mule trip, our cave paintings day hike is for you.

What a fun day!  I didn't know we would learn so much.  It was good to get out and stretch our legs too.  Your guides were wonderful.
