Moonrise Over Sierra Laguna Mountains

Baja California Sur was once an island and is a natural wonder, with an ecosystem unlike anywhere on the planet. With what Jacques Cousteau described as the “Aquarium to the World” (the Sea of Cortez) on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, the area has a very high rate of endemism in both plants and wildlife.

Our guides have lived in Baja for over a decade and are certified Wilderness First Responders, each very knowledgeable about local history, flora, fauna. They are all great story tellers who love sharing their home town with visitors to the area. We’ve that the most important aspect of a successful adventure is having fun people with whom to spend a few days adventuring.

If the tequila gets passed around the table too much, gringos might try and spell CalyCanto like calicanto, calecanto, or cal y canto. However you spell it, you are always welcome at Calycanto Casitas. Thank you for visiting.
