@ 4x4abc: I asked for easy access, because I'm travelling with a disabled family member who would be happy to get out and get the chance to see the paintings. Your comment about better drinking beer at home is just inappropriate.



I apologize!

I believe that Cueva Raton in la Sierra de San Fransisco just south of Vizcaino has ramps for wheel chair access...and the drive up the mountains alone is stunning!!!

There are a lot of pictographs and petroglyphs near the San Fernando mission in several places. One especially nice panel is near the end of the little side road - get to the square cistern (see pictos on the rocks at that end) - walk across the arroyo, climb up the little cliff, and look at all the large rocks. You'll spy an impressive panel. There may be more around there as well.
and kinda off the beaten path, but the Las Pintas archaeological site is an impressive area.

In all my visits to the San Fernando petroglyph cliff (since my first time in 1974), I have never gone past it to see the pila (square cistern) or look for any other petro/picto sites there. Baja is a land the keeps on giving, indeed!

Gele - if you want a nice car ride to get there and then a small cave painting that was described by Harry Crosby as "a small but choice" selection of paintings, then head up to San Francisco and pay a small fee to visit CUEVA DEL RATON.

It is south of Vizcaino at km 115 - head east from highway 1.

It is so close to the road, and "more of an overhang" than a cave, but it is impressive and the drive up is just gorgeous as well.

My sister went with a guide from San Ignacio and they got to see petroglyphs on the drive up.


Blanca beat me to it. I highly recommend the cave and the drive. It's absolutely beautiful up there.

Hi, I am looking for a guide to take a few people up to see the paintings at La Trinidad. I have spoken with Salvador Castro Drew already; are there any other tour guides besides him that can take us to those paintings? I heard of Ciro Cuesta, but I have not been able to reach him at the Cuesta Real Hotel.

TIA,

Windsor
