San Javier-- a charming little village located in the mountains behind Loreto. Most Baja visitors stick to the coast and miss a lot of the charming, very rustic little villages located in the interior backcountry. There's an impressive church, a few places to eat and drink, and a basic hotel. You can drive to San Javier, but the best way to go is to hire a horse or mule for the journey from Loreto.

Baja California Sur has two UNESCO World Heritage Sites; the Rock Paintings of the Sierra de San Francisco and the Whale Sanctuary of El Vizcaino


Stay safe

Although generally safe, it is probably wise to camp with others or in organized campgrounds.
