Climbing Matomi Mountain


Just reviewing web pages and had another look at Mexitron's cool photos from the top of Cerro Matomi (between Puertecitos and El Rosario). I hear there's still a bottle of tequila at the top for the next team up!!!

Frank, unless you get a better answer I am going to suggest you go to the museum in San Ignacio or where-ever you get the permits to visit the giant cave paintings in San Pablo Canyon (San Francisco de la Sierra). Ask Ricardo at 'Int'l. Rice and Beans' (restaurant and motel) which is just below Mex. 1, on the side paved road turning right (at the right turn junction to enter San Ignacio).

Volcan Tres Virgenes

This from Baja Nomad JESSE:

In ejido Bonfil you can get a guide to climb that mountain ( ask for Mr Ramon Arce), but you MUST ask for information and authorization to climb that volcano at the Estaci?n Biol?gica de la Reserva de El Vizca?no in Guerrero Negro, you do need authorization since the volcano is part of a biological reserve under the federal goverment.

More info:

http://tepetl.igeofcu.unam.mx/volcanes/tresvirgenes.html

I believe Ejido Bonfil is south of San Ignacio off of Mex 1.

Wow, that's amazing....a permit to climb Tres Virgenes....times are-a-changing. Well, no need for a permit to climb Matomi....yet.......guess its outside the Central Park. Nice view from there--both Pacific and Gulf. Thanks for the reminder DK!

cost of guide to hike Tres Virgines


Jesse,
Do you know how much Mr. Ramon Arce charges for guide services? and where in Ejido Bonfill I can locate him. I suppose it's not a very big place so it should be easy, please advise.

Visitor's pass and Tres Virgense hiking permit question


To Bruce or Jesse,

Should I wait til I get to Guerro Negro before I get my visitor's pass or should I get it sooner. The last time in Baja we stopped in Ensenada and we wasted alot of time looking and for then waiting to get our paperwork processed. The reason why I'm concerned about waiting til I get to Guerro Negro is because of the military check points along the way. Also, what will be the easiest way to find the Estacion Biologica de la Reserva de El Vizcaino in GN?
Thanks for your help.
Frank
