Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve

Don’t miss out on one of southern Baja’s most biodiverse and least visited natural protected areas. Looming up out of the desert, the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve boasts waterfalls, thermal pools, and the region’s only pine and oak forests. A short detour from the main highway will take you up into sierra. Choose one of our optional activities, from nature focused hikes or a traditional rancho.

Todos Santos Pueblo Mágico

Escape to Todos Santos, a quaint, historic town located on the Pacific just one hour from La Paz. Your naturalist guide will accompany you on this overland journey, along the way interpreting the history and culture of this iconic Pueblo Mágico, its roots as an indigenous settlement, and the vibrant arts and culinary scene. Take a stroll along the coast and if we are lucky and in season (Jan-Mar), we may spot humpback whales just off the coast. Your guide will lead you through the estuary that is home to migratory and marine birds. After just one day in Todos Santos you’ll surely want to plan a return visit to this tranquil escape.

Cabo Pulmo National Park

No visit to Baja California Sur is complete without experiencing the magic of Cabo Pulmo National Park. Home to the northernmost coral reef in the Eastern Pacific, Cabo Pulmo is recognized as a model for successful marine resource management. and home to multitudes of marine species. Visitors to Cabo Pulmo are continually amazed by the quantity and diversity of marine life.

Trip Impact

Reducing our footprint

RED’s zero-waste goal for day trips and itineraries in our gray whale camp helps us minimize our environmental impact. We have eliminated single use plastic from our operations. Lunch and snacks are sourced from local providers focusing on fresh versus packaged food. Recyclables are separated onsite and transferred to a processing facility and all organic waste is composted.

Traveling Roots and whale shark ambassadors – Raising awareness with local youth

We can’t appreciate what we don’t know first hand. RED provides scholarships to underserved local youth to visit Espíritu Santo and to snorkel with whale sharks with a goal to foster stewardship and to promote equal access for all to the natural wonders that make La Paz such a unique destination.

Preserving endangered sea turtles in Magdalena Bay

RED works with Grupo Tortuguero de las Californias to recruit, train and employ fisher conservationists, creating sustainable employment alternatives, funding the monitoring, and in the process generating important data about the health and movement of sea turtle populations. By putting the monitoring in the hands of local fishermen RED and funding the participation of students from surrounding communities in sea turtle monitoring, RED is helping to create local stewards of Magdalena Bay’s natural resources.

Building local economy

RED designs its operational model to include local residents in its operations, whether as microenterprises, or directly as individuals, helping to diversify incomes while providing training and skills building through RED’s capacity building programs.

Strengthening individuals families and microenterprises in rural communities

RED’s co-founders founded an independent, nonprofit arm, Red de Turismo Sustentable y Desarrollo Social AC, using our tourism expertise to create a micro-enterprise training program that benefits budding family enterprises throughout Mexico.

Reforestation in the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve

The Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere reserve is a natural paradise, boasting natural springs, oak trees, and one of the peninsula’s premiere spots for biodiversity. Mining, uncontrolled grazing and logging hasten desertification, threatening habitat and the natural process that makes this Reserve one of the principal water resources in the region. Working with CONANP and local rancheros, RED created a tourism based program focused on reforestation and soil restoration, along the way providing training and sustainable livelihoods.
