My husband loves the Cacachilas Mountains and because of this, he wanted to celebrate his birthday at Los Pisos, a remote area of the range which offers glamping. Rafa, Perla, and Fernanda from the Rancho Cacachilas Bike Hub did a wonderful job of organizing our celebration. We started the day early to meet our guides and 2 mules at Aguas Calientes in El Sargento for our hike into the Cacachilas. We hiked all the way up to Los Pisos with several stops along the way to enjoy the magical vistas of Isla Cerralvo and the Sea of Cortez below. Lunchtime arrived at our halfway point and we were treated to a delicious lunch to nourish us for the rest of our hike. When we arrived at Los Pisos, coffee and cookies, appetizers and champagne, margaritas, beer, and wine began our celebration. Our dinner was spectacular, followed by a birthday cake and dancing around the firepit. The glamping tents are luxurious and comfortable and the bucket showers warm and refreshing after a long hike. The next day, after breakfast, we were guided to one of the rock paintings in the Cacachilas----a sight to behold. After another delectable lunch complete with wine and beer, we were shuttled back to the Bike Hub to end our most unforgettable adventure.

We had a wonderful day on a mule ride. 5 friends and 3 guides. It was the most pleasant riding experience I have ever had. Great scenery, conversations about the environment and a wonderful lunch. The guides Sebastian, Abraham and Augustine are highly recommended.

We are a family of four and did the day mountain biking tour and it was awesome. It is challenging but we love mountain biking. You bike through the desert and canyons and the views are spectacular. Then you come down to a beautiful ravine with a creek where they feed you this lovely farm to table lunch. It is challenging physically but is not too technical. It exceeded our expectations and we would do it again given the chance.

I’m not sure how to write this review honestly. First, the good. It’s absolutely gorgeous, with views out toward La Ventana and all surrounding greenery. The food - come for the cheese! - was very, very good. The staff were very kind and helpful. I believe this place is honestly an amazing “company” - which I put in air quotes because, from what I gather, the wealthy owners are more interested in preservation and giving back to the local economy than profit. It’s really a worthy cause. My only hesitation is that the “Ranch Experience” day trip was, well, not what I expected. Still very lovely, but like the activity had never been done before and no one knew what to do. It was still a great trip, but rather more like an ambling tour around the ranch with lunch at the end. Someone needs to impose some structure. In their defense, I believe this was the first time our young guide had given the tour, and it seemed like they grabbed him on the fly to take us because he knew passable English. However, even if there are other groups, it’s a fairly large amount of money, and I booked almost a month in advance. I would really just liked to have seen more preparation, more activity, and more structure. All in all, I’d come back, but I’d definitely find a different activity to do.

Response from StaffBikeHub, Operations Manager at Rancho Cacachilas
Responded Jan 15, 2020
Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for your candid review - I really appreciate that you took this time to give us such important feedback. I am glad you loved the scenery, the views, the lunch and especially our award-winning cheeses from our ranch creamery. I am sorry that the rest of Ranch Experience day trip was not as well done. This is a new trip offering for us at the ranch, our guide staff was indeed new at it, and we are working hard to tighten up the experience and train our staff better at it to deliver an outstanding day at the ranch in every way. Please come back and try our mule riding, hiking or mountain biking tours - these we have a lot more experience with now. Please ask for Fernanda at the Hub check-in and we'll be happy to accommodate your 2nd trip with a discount. Kind regards, Rafael Camposeco González - Operations Manager

Rarely can one access those desert mountains in Baja California because of the rugged terrain, obscure routes, spiny plants and lack of water. This guided trip offers that access, traversing a small mountain range accompanied by local guides and two mules. Accommodations range from small tent camping on the ground beneath a large tree to somewhat luxurious glamping with talented cooks and support staff, not your usual trek. My favorite aspect of the hike, along with the company of friends, was talking with the very friendly guides about life in Baja, the plants and animals along the way, mules and language. The trail route would appeal to most hikers but certainly to botonist-plant enthusiasts. The flora varies from a multitude of cactus and desert plants to palms lining canyons and ravines. One learns which plants not to touch, plants used to annoy schoolmates, poison fish, etc. Anyone with a backpacking level of fitness should be able to complete this route but it's not for someone unaccustomed to hiking up and down steep rugged terrain on irregular rocky surfaces. Carrying a backpack is unnecessary, there are mules afterall, very nice. The food and service are excellant, remarkable considering the remoteness. Once again, the value of this hike, other than it's in a scenic mountain area with occasional panaramic views of the Sea of Cortez, is the opportunity to explore remote desert mountain trails and lush palm lined canyons inaccessable to casual travelers, accomponied by local guides and staff with an abundance of uncommon knowledge of the region.
