I believe this was our 4th dinner we have had at Rancho Cacachiles which is located about a 10 mile drive from La Ventana, BCS. Taco night, with a special Mezcal margarita, sounded very reasonable for around $35 US dollars. It sold out fast with 60 guests total for this Magical evening. All the food was raised or grown on the ranch and prepared in the traditional ways. The staff, (Cameron in charge of the meats, Sebastian leads many of the hiking tours and many more names I need to learn) attentive and all were wearing masks throughout the evening. The conversations inviting throughout the evening with other people who love Baja, from a variety of places. If you get there early ( but not too early because the gate doesn’t open until the starting time) you can have a tour of the working ranch and garden area. We love Baja and this eco tourism ranch is a huge part of why. We’ll be back!

My boyfriend and I, both experienced mountain bikers, arranged a day of riding on the ranch through the bike shop. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip! It was just the two of us and our guides Roberto and Diego had our bikes loaded and ready to go when we arrived at the bike shop. The trails are incredibly well designed and highlight the beauty of the desert and historical sites on the ranch. Diego was very well versed in the flora and fauna and happily answered our many questions as well as stopped to show us plants of interest. They tailored the pace and distance to our needs (it was really hot for us Alaskans, so we had to go slower than usual!) and gave us choices for route options with a stop to refill water and rest in the shade. Lunch, made entirely of products from the ranch, was delicious! We rarely take guided tours and are accustomed to self-guided wilderness trips, but this was well worth the money and a real treat. I would like to point out that this ranch is backed with deep pockets. We like to support small, local businesses and give back to the communities we travel through.From what I can tell, the ranch is run with good intentions and in a sustainable fashion with great care given to trail location and design. I would Ike to see the community have access to the trail system, though.

Great time on the El Ciruelo Hike. The vistas were absolutely beautiful, but the whole experience was made perfect by our guide, Japeth (I hope I am spelling his name correctly). Our guide was not only knowledgeable about all the flora and fauna, but he was also considerate and gracious; I thought I was up for an intermediate hike and over-estimated by skill level. Our guide made sure that I was ok at all times and did everything that he could to make the hike enjoyable and attainable. His gentle encouragement and kindness are very much appreciated.

The cheese tasting and wine after the hike were outstanding; the goat cheese, made from goat's milk from goats on the farm was so good that we bought some to go! The lunch that followed was absolutely delicious.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience...we would absolutely return, and we will recommend it if any of our friends are headed to the La Paz area.

We spent the night at Rancho Chivato, ate delicious healthy farm to table meals, sat at a campfire under a starlit sky, “glamped” in the most comfortable tents! And to top it off, we had a great hike the next day, up the Water Trail. We can’t say enough good things about our guide, Pablo, who was so knowledgeable & enthusiastic about the flora, fauna & history of the area. Muchísimo gracias to all three of the guys who took such awesome care of us: Pablo, Diego, & Christofer. We will be back!

Great day hiking at Racho Cacahilas. Ana was a very knowledgeable guide teaching us much about the flora and fauna of the desert environment. The gourmet lunch was spectacular. The scenery was breathtaking. I would highly recommend.

We had an awesome time for our family of four with two teen boys. One son (16yo) went Mountain Biking on El Arroyo trail. He's an intermediate level and it was a challenge ( 10 miles and 2,000 feet elevation gain) but fun he said. The heat was the hardest part. The rest of us went hiking on the "El Ciruelo" trail. The hiking pace was average but doable if you are used to hiking. You definitely feel the heat and it wasn't that bad in early April. The views are spectacular. Our guide Ana was very knowledge. At the end of the hike we had a cheese tasting. The cheese was SO GOOD! Then they drove us to another part of the Ranch Dos Hermanos for lunch. The salad, the fish and the flan were all just so yummy. Even my picky eater son liked it. This is such a good way to see and enjoy Baja.

Rancho Cacachilas was fabulous! We highly recommend spending a day or even better yet, 2 nights glamping! We were one of the first groups to stay over night. Comfort & beauty all around! The Naturalist guides were knowledgeable about the plants, animals & history of the area. Learning about sustainable ranching & conservation efforts gave me hope for the future of this special place.
The food is grown on the property, so truly, ranch to table experience. We will be returning, so many more trails to explore!

The perfect combination of exercise, learning and superb food! We saw so many plants and butterflies on the hike. Anna shared so much information about the preserve and surrounding history. Pluto, the local black dog joined us on the hike adding to the fun.

We loved the cheese tasting I'm just sorry to say my favorite was sold out! Means we have to come back sometime. The lunch was spectacular. All in all a lovely way to spend a day.

We returned to Rancho Cacachilas recently with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The accommodations took glamping to a different level, with a HUGE, very comfortable bed, chairs, and table in a very roomy heavy canvas tent beneath a large palapa. Comfortable, well-placed bathroom facilities were scattered throughout the glamping area, and were spotless. Then there was the food...not the fare one would expect in such a remote place. Dinner included sustainably farmed fish and locally grown vegetables expertly prepared and served by local staff. After a very comfortable night's rest, we went on a several hour guided hike through the beautiful mountains of the ranch and learned a lot about the fascinating local flora and fauna. Upon our return, there was another incredible meal waiting, including crème brulée for desert!
