Day hikes around san Jose Del Cabo?


Any tips or pointers to resources on day hikes around San Jose Del Cabo?

I understand there are some waterfalls near town, but the guy who described them to me sent me on a wild goose chase (or I got lost), and I never saw him again to ask for clarification.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hola Canadiense


There are some beautiful day hikes within an hour's drive of San Jose del Cabo.
One in particular is just by my property in El Chorro.
You could drive to Santiago, and stop at the Palomar Hotel, and ask them for directions to the Hot Springs at El Chorro. You should really have a beer and/or lunch there as well, and they will give you all kinds of useful info on how to get there, as well as a nice little map that they make themselves, so you won't get lost.
If you promise to inform me on the condition of the little town of El Chorro, post Hurricane John, I may let you stay overnight there so you can hike, or enjoy the Hot Springs for more than a day :bounce:

Hey Barbara,

Thanks for the offer. Sounds like a great reason to go a little farther afield.

I'll have a little rental car, but not 4WD. Hopefully, the HPs will be accessible with the wheels I have.

Unfortunately, I wont be there 'til the middle of March, so my report might be a bit belated!

I'll copy and archive your post and keep you in mind.

Thanks again,

Frizkie - I'm going to Rancho Leonero in April 07 to fish. I think we'll have a rental car and a couple days to explore. What else shall we not miss while in the area? Was thinking of going to some special snorkeling spots. We're not into the city scene. Have taken note of the hotsprings hike. thanks.

Just a 10 minute ride above Santiago -- one of 4 canyons, all different, all wonderful.

Hiking at Rancho La Venta


We had a nice day at Rancho La Venta, located between San Antonio and San Bartola on the eastside highway. The ranch has many miles of horse trails (you can rent horses, too) that are fun to walk. Some of the arroyos have running water year 'round. Lunch in a palapa covered, 100 year old adobe ruin, is part of the package. Email Bob and Liz at rancholaventa(at)yahoo.com for details

Those canyons above Santiago are spectacular and we have hiked them many times. I have aways wanted to take them to the very top and try to enter the park that sit's atop the sierra laguna there. Never had the time. During the winter be prepared to run into some very gnarly live off the land strange gringo freaks that make camp up there. kinda territorial and clanish but we have never been threatned, just kinda startled.

Some of the pools are deep enough to dive into from the higher rocks.
