Welcome to Rancho Cacachilas - You will be arriving at our Bike Shop in Sargento, La Ventana (45 minutes from La Paz, and 1.5 hours from San Jos del Cabo). We will then shuttle you up to Chivato, which is our base camp for the week. Once you are settled in we will hit the trails for a short test ride to get a feel for our bikes and take care of any adjustments that may need to be made.
Morning: After a hearty breakfast, older family members will hit the trails and ride toward Dos Hermanos to explore our working ranch with its award winning creamery and seed production garden.
Children will spend the morning with their "Kids Camp" Rancho Cacachilas guides exploring the ranch and learning about the ecosystem, desert animals, plants and watershed in a fun, educational program. We will all meet up to enjoy a farm-to-table lunch at Dos Hermanos.
Afternoon: Parents will return to Chivato, while the kids explore the Dos Hermanos gardens and learn about our goats and cows. They will learn how to raise and care for the animals, how cheese is made, and maybe even how to milk a cow or goat! Kids and parents reunite later in afternoon at Chivato and can reconnect over a refreshing dip in the pool. That evening we will all stargaze together and learn about the Baja night skies.
Morning: On this day you will be familiar with the routine & ready to take on a day of mountain biking adventure! We will hit the trails after breakfast to enjoy a ride on one of the Ranch's prime single track trails. This ride will take us to the middle height of the mountain offering great terrain challenges as well as magnificent views of the desert merging with the sea.
The kids will spend the morning with their "Kids Camp" Rancho Cacachilas guides exploring the ranch and learning about the ecosystem, desert animals, plants and watershed in a fun, educational program. We will all reunite for a lunch together at Las Canoas.
Afternoon: Parents will then return to Chivato while the children take an afternoon field trip to the historic mining town of El Triunfo and the Museo Ruta de Plata only about 40 minutes away. The kids will learn about the town's rich history of mining and what life was like 300 years ago for kids there. Children and parents reunite in late afternoon and unwind at Chivato. Families will spend the evening learning about the History of Baja around the campfire.
On this day we will be transported to the community of La Ventana for a ride on the local trails. We will find ourselves either winding through the cacti forest or exploring the hills that lead us to the hot springs at the beach. After the ride we will enjoy the peaceful waters the Sea of Cortez before we part ways.
