Guest Destination: San Bartolo

Located on the slopes of the Sierra de la Laguna, an hour and a half south of La Paz and an hour and 15 minutes from San Jose del Cabo following highway number 1, San Bartolo is a paradise in the middle of the desert; an oasis in a corner of the State of Baja California Sur.

The community is known for the hospitality and cordiality of the people, as well as for the elaborate homemade empanadas, regional sweets, piloncillo and burritas.

San Bartolo is surrounded by ranches. A spring fed stream runs almost year-round in the middle of the village. Springs are why the orchards thrive in this destination. It is a true oasis.

San Bartolo has nature trails for walking and cycling tours. The tranquility of contemplating the springs and bathing in the water are attractive features.

The pantheon located on the side of the road has graves from the year 1926 corroborating the age of the town.

San Bartolo has a wonderful microclimate, not as hot as the rest of the state, so fruit trees and vegetation proliferate. The climate and the quality of the water allow two harvests a year.

Economic activity

As part of agriculture, mango, orange, avocado and guavas are harvested. The livestock industry, is another of the main activities of this place, which allows the manufacture of artisanal cheeses.

Its delicious preserves and homemade sweets are made from the mango, lemon, squash, guava and other fruits that grow in home gardens. The products are sold roadside.

The traditional celebrations of San Bartolo take place in August. They are celebrated with sport, cultural and recreational activities, as well as a royal ball for the coronation of the queen-elect.
