  • Reviews from previous experience visitors: Guided trip with experienced leaders of Birding Los Cabos.  This was a two day trip to the rim of the Sierra de la Laguna biosphere  that required a 6 hour mule ride up and down the mountain.  The mule ride was essential for maintaining endurance for the birding at the locations to be explored.  The area is rural, rugged trail and country for the experience or well planned only.  Some tourists got lost in the is region for 1-2 weeks, so care is needed to explore the area.  Permits and logistics are also tricky, so I would recommend the guided experience of this trip!  The mule ride is moderate with strenuous ascents and descents.  The hiking is mild to moderate.  One of your best opportunities to see endemic Pygmy Owl, Xantus' Hummingbird and San Lucas Robin baird's junco and other sub-species.
