Destination Spotlight: Sierra de la Laguna

Located in southern Baja California and spanning 11,600 hectares, the Sierra de la Laguna mountains are so lovely that UNESCO has designated them a biosphere reserve. Learn about the ways you can soak up this region’s astounding scenery, whether embarking on a hiking tour or splashing in freshwater springs, along with other helpful tips.

When to Go

The weather in Los Cabos is one of its biggest selling points, making Sierra de la Laguna a year-round destination. You’ll find cooler weather in the fall and winter, while spring and summer are naturally the warmest periods of the year. Extra rainfall means the waterfalls are even more spectacular in the summer.

What to Do

The three top local activities here are hiking, biking, and mountaineering, and the best way to experience it all is through Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, where we’ll help you arrange the adventure of your choice. Let our expert instructors escort you by 4×4 to this enchanted jungle wonderland, where discreet trailheads lead to hidden waterfalls, swimming holes, and hot springs. The guides will also point out native species — including gophers, badgers, deer, the eight endemic reptile species, and the four endemic mammal species. After a magical morning of excursions, refuel at the rustic Rancho El Refugio ecological reserve, where a local culinary legend will dream up an indulgent surprise feast.

How to Get There

If exploring with the Waldorf Astoria instructor, we’ll take care of shuttling you to and from the mountains. Otherwise, you will be looking at a drive of roughly an hour and a half each way, via Carretera Transpeninsular/Mexico 1. Take a left around kilometer marker 53, then proceed toward a lookout tower and follow the signs.
