Baja California Adventure Resort, Wilderness Camps & Working Ranches

Rancho Cacachilas spans 14,000 hectares in the Greater La Paz region of eastern Baja California Sur, Mexico. It is comprised of private historic working ranches, an adventure resort, and wilderness camps in a setting of 60 kilometers of world-class Baja mountain biking, hiking and running trails. Experience a unique eco adventure vacation with fine glamping in southern Baja’s Sierra Cacachilas mountains!

The ranch complex is a private, gated, and off-grid operating self-sufficiently on solar power without reliance on public utility services. Our ranches and camps are bound together by our comprehensive land management plan that protects and rejuvenates the land, from mountains to sea. We’d love to show you how!


There are two separate lodging locations for your eco-adventure getaway at Rancho Cacachilas: the adventure resort and camp at Chivato with wifi, pool, commons room, safari tents and resort rooms, and the remote wilderness camp at Los Pisos high up in the Sierra Cacachilas with safari tents. The historical mining camp at Las Canoas has an outdoor kitchen and is a day use area.

All ranch locations are powered by solar and have eco-designed composting dry toilets. Overnight locations have bucket showers with solar-generated hot water. Only Chivato has wifi and decent cell reception.

LAS CANOAS - Historical Mining Area & Day use area

These working ranches are historical and still as active as ever; they are where you have the opportunity to experience a variety of different agricultural and physical activities.
