Water Sports:

Adventure Tours - Discover the exciting thrill of fishing, sightseeing and whale watching, spear fishing, snorkeling, ocean kayaking and much more.

Swimming – Playa Las Palmas, and Playa Los Cerritos swimming beaches are only minutes away. Punta Lobos is used by the local fishermen, and also is a beautiful beach.

Surfing – Two great surf breaks are within a five-minute drive, Cerritos Beach and San Pedrito, both in Pescadero. North of Todos Santos is Las Pocitas and La Pastora for advanced surfers. Your half-acre casa site has secure parking and surfboard storage. If you have a group larger than four, come prepared to pitch tents on the property, or on our private beach. Surfing lessons can be arranged.

Boating and fishing – Charters available through either La Paz or Cabo San Lucas harbors. For a truly unique experience, rent a “panga” or local fishing boat just down the beach.

Whale watching – In season (usually December to late February) whales migrate right past your door. Local tour companies provide excursions to get up close and personal with these huge and mysterious mammals.
Snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming with the seals or whalesharks at Isla Espirtú Santo. We recommend Azul Tours at Pichilingue (near La Paz) as a day trip.
 


Buy the catch of the day from the fisherman who caught it that morning at a nearby beach.

Day Trips:
 

La Paz - A bit more than an hour’s drive from Rancho Nuevo, La Paz is the capital city of Baja Sur. This is a true Mexican city, not a tourist destination. It offers a glimpse into a provincial Mexican town atmosphere and cultural lifestyle. La Paz is a great place to stroll the inviting waterfront Malecon, or relax at one of the beautiful beaches in the La Paz area.

 

El Triunfo - A step back in time. That's how it feels in the tranquil village of El Triunfo, a 55-minute drive north of Pescadero. A total of 52.3 miles from the Pemex station in Pescadero, follow Hwy. 19 to the La Paz turnoff, turning right to Hwy. 1, through 13 miles of winding desert road to a jewel of a small, totally Mexican town.
 

In addition to a few craft shops, a unique piano museum and strikingly beautiful Catholic Church, the local hot spot is the Café El Triunfo, located on a quiet side street, which like all the other streets in El Triunfo, is made entirely of stone.


The café welcomes visitors 365 days a year with an array of baked goods, luscious muffins, cookies and the café's signature bread loaves, baked in a mesquite wood oven.


Café El Triunfo is owned by Chef Marcos Spahr, who perfected his baking skills over years of trial and error, as well as a long internship in France learning a technique called Pain a la Ancienne. Each loaf takes 24 hours to make, using a slow, cold fermentation method. His breads are similar to sourdough, but with a sweet nutlike character.
 


The restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere that invites a leisurely two hour lunch-the food is just too good to rush. Menu options are surprisingly varied, and the building looks more like an antique store than a diner. To find it, look for the big pizza sign on the main street and turn right. If you want to walk off lunch, there's a trail at the end of the road leading to a pleasant arroyo.

So, if quaint is on your list of things to see, try El Triunfo. It's worth the drive.

 

Rancho Las Cruces

For a perfect day trip from Pescadero, try Rancho Las Cruces, an elegant getaway on the coast of the Sea of Cortes near La Paz. 

Rancho Las Cruces was developed by Abelardo Rodriguez 400 years after Spanish Conquistdor Hernan Cortes had three crosses placed on the land he thought to be an island of great riches. Replicas of these crosses remain today overlooking the beautiful seaside resort known for its luxury homes, several owned by 1950s movie stars. 
 

To get there you drive through miles of the 12,000-acre property of natural desert landscape and past a small private dirt airstrip to a resort of towering palm trees and manicured landscaping. Las Cruces is along a five-mile private stretch of coastline. Built in 1950, it became a private club in 1960. 

Once a simple spot for sport fishing, the resort is an isolated hideaway full of old- world charm. There are plenty of activities for those staying at one of the 36 rooms, including hiking, fishing, boating, swimming, tennis, and volleyball. It even has a putting green, shuffleboard and croquet court. For the more adventurous guest, special guided tours to rock art, mountain pools and isolated beaches can be arranged. An end-of-day massage is a great way to relax the body and sooth the spirit.
 

There are also several luxury homes for short or long term rental. Make a reservation for lunch and a guide will show you the homes still owned by the Bing Crosby, Desi Arnez and Rodriguez families. While keeping the flavor of past decades, Rancho Las Cruses is immaculately maintained with impeccable décor. 

Las Cruces prides itself on personalized service. On the day of our visit there our wait staff for lunch included Maria, who has worked at Rancho Las Cruces for 52 years. She reminisced about the many celebrities she has served in her years as part of the Las Cruces staff. All the rooms are decorated in a Mexican colonial style. Memberships have been passed from generation to generation as families and individuals have enjoyed both the solitude and recreational amenities offered.
