CAVE PAINTING DAY HIKE

JOURNEY BACK IN TIME

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!

“Such an interesting day. I was not expecting to learn as much as we did about the plants as well as the paintings”

“It was harder than I expected hiking the gravel wash for 2 miles. Not a good hike for bad knees or funky ankles!”
