San Vicente de la Sierra, a mountainous area within the delegation of Cabo San Lucas, offers a mesmerizing winter landscape reminiscent of the forests described in fairy tales. Unlike what one would expect in the mountains of Baja California Sur, this region boasts abundant vegetation and a variety of colorful flowers, which serve as a home to a diverse range of insects, birds, and other animals.
Just entering the road that leads to this small town with a population of only 27 inhabitants is an invitation to explore and contemplate. The winding paths create the illusion of being on top of the mountains, providing complete disconnection from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The location is enriched with the delicious and fresh essence of mountain herbs, making it an ideal place for camping. At night, thanks to the absence of light pollution, you can look up and appreciate the illumination of the sky full of sparkling stars.
The sound of water flowing through the streams, which nourishes the livestock, promotes a sensation of well-being in the body. In the past, residents of neighboring communities such as San Felipe, El Sauzal, and San José del Cabo came to San Vicente de la Sierra to purchase goats, pigs, and other livestock.
San Vicente de la Sierra has a meager store with limited opening hours, which sells essential consumer items. Therefore, planning and bringing the necessary supplies for your visit is advisable. With careful planning, you can enjoy tours organized by subdelegado (representative) Félix Agúndez and his family. During our visit, we were invited to try some authentic Southern Californian dishes, such as the chimangos with cheese, to get a taste of the local cuisine. Visiting Marcos, who crafts and sells clay pots, is also part of the experience.
Visitors can experience the true essence of luxury by exploring nature’s hidden and unexpected wonders along the trails.
