Trip overview

Take a cultural day trip to a ranch in the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve. Your driver and guide will take you on the scenic 1.5 hour drive south from La Paz and into the mountains. Your hosts, a local family, will be waiting for you. Help milk the cows and then learn how to make artisan cheese. You can also test your skill in making handmade tortillas on the wood-fired comal. Enjoy a scenic nature hike and learn about the local flora and fauna. During lunch, you will have the opportunity to learn about the ranchero culture and some of the centuries-old traditions that are kept alive in the communities of the sierra. You will also learn about some of the conservation and restoration efforts run by local families.

The safety and enjoyment of our travelers are our top priorities. Please see our terms and conditions for more information. We do not guarantee wildlife sightings, interaction or behavior.

  • On insurance: All of our experiences are covered by  an Emergency Medical Expenses insurance. In order to obtain coverage, each guest MUST SIGN A LIABILITY WAIVER BEFORE DEPARTURE. 

  • Climate and weather: La Paz is situated on the Gulf of California on the southern part of the Baja California peninsula. It is separated from the Pacific by a desert environment with low mountains in between. We get large temperature swings, typically in the late fall and spring, up to 104 degrees fahrenheit (40 degrees celsius). This can be true even during winter. Outside of summer, we recommend packing for HOT and COLD weather. Most importantly, be prepared for a sun that’s stronger than you may be used to due to our latitude. Remember, a sunburn takes just a couple hours to develop, but it can ruin the rest of your trip. Stay shaded and stay hydrated. 

  • Luggage: For day trips, you’ll want to bring a small bag or backpack for your water bottle and personal items.
