BAJA CAVE PAINTING TOURS BY MULE

JOURNEY DEEP INTO THE SIERRA, DEEP INTO THE PAST

CAVE PAINTING TOURS FROM SAN IGNACIO B.C.S.

One of the amazing things about the Baja is its ability to remain unchanged.  Sure the weather comes through and rearranges an arroyo, or towns grow a little more each year, but beyond that, out in the desert many things are preserved the way they have been for hundreds or even thousands of years.  The cave paintings of the Sierra de San Francisco and the guides that lead you there are both examples of how some things never change.  Join us on our multi day mule trips that leave from near San Ignacio, Baja California Sur

EQUIPTMENT AVAILABLE
