A walk in the astonishing setting of the Biosphere Reserve El Vizcaino
Leaving the tranquil town of San Ignacio, you will have to follow directions for the Sierra de San Francisco on the Mexican Federal Highway 1 for about 44Km. Then you will find a diversion on the right (indicating again the Sierra de San Francisco). The road will take you inside the El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve, one of the largest protected area in Mexico characterized by an extraordinary biological diversity and breathtaking panoramas.
We went there to visit one of the many painted caves, the Cueva del Raton, but, since the road was unpaved (for the last 5-6 km) and in bad conditions we decided to reach it on foot.
It was a very enjoyable and gentle 5 Km stroll, done in less than 1h and half, with the plus side of amazing views on the canyon and a closer look at the local wildlife.
