Hike into the Old Port at Punta Lobos – a beautiful 1.5 hour hike (round trip) located just south of Todos Santos, on the way to Pescadero. You'll hike up over a ridge, then down into a protected cove, all with spectacular views of the coast. If you time it right (mid to late afternoon), you can head out to the beach at Punta Lobos and watch the fisherman come in from the day with their fresh catch. For more information on group hikes and tours, contact Todos Santos Eco Adventures.
