Unique to Rancho Los Banos is a package we are very excited to have the opportunity to offer our guests. Combining our love for the ranch as well as the Sea of Cortez, our “Sea to Sierra” holiday will take you on a diverse and unique journey encompassing adventures in the Sierra Madre, as well as the Sea of Cortez.

To begin, you will spend four or five quality nights at Rancho Los Baños, partaking in those adventures that appeal to you. Whether backcountry horseback riding, box canyon hiking, warm springs,river fishing, mountain biking, jeep ecotouring or porching, your stay at the ranch will be filled with active adventures, in a setting that is breath-taking, secluded, peaceful and pristine.

On the fifth or sixth day of your adventure, we will leave the Rancho and head west, in the direction of the famous and beautiful Sea of Cortez [drive time 6 hours]. On the way, we will visit the scenic and historic towns of Cumpas, Moctezuma and Ures, all along Mexico Highway 17. Between these towns you will see inspiring landscapes and scenery, discovering a wilderness area that is a real hidden gem.

Passing Hermosillo, Sonora’s capital, we will finally head to our beach destination, San Carlos, a lazy expat and fishing town that certainly offers the nicest beaches in Sonora. Still hidden from major tourism, this is Cabo without the crowds. Here, you will discover many activities to chose from, including whale and dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, beach time, swimming, kayaking,hiking and even horseback riding. The beauty overlooking the Sea of Cortez is undeniable, yet this area remains unchanged, uncommercialized and charming.

Our four or five night stay in San Carlos will allow us the opportunity to stay in a modern, comfortable, exclusive and high-end condo overlooking the ocean, right on the beach. High above the ocean, the views are out of this world. Enjoying a terrific swimming pool, you can relax and take in the sun, the sounds and sights of a wonderful slice of heaven. With your personal chef, enjoying the best regional seafood cuisine in the comfort of your spacious condo, you will be hard pressed to want to leave.

If you have never experienced the ocean in a desert environment, it is a beautiful, scenic, exotic and unique opportunity, offering an out of this world experience. With gorgeous white-sand beaches, warm, calm ocean water, no crowds or noise, San Carlos will capture your imagination. 

For those seeking nothing but sun and beach, your days can also be devoted to reading your favorite book on the beach, relaxing under incredible temperatures and weather, sipping Corona’s or Margarita’s.  With ocean water that is warm and pleasant, a dip or two in calm waters will feel incredible. 

If deep-sea fishing is your adventure of choice, we can set up a half or full-day fishing adventure for you as well. Indeed, there is nothing like deep-sea fishing on the magical waters of the Sea of Cortez. For those interested, whale and dolphin watching can also be arranged, depending on the season. The Sea of Cortez is world-famous for its rich marine life.

Of course your stay will be in your private, modern, comfortable and exclusive beach condo rental, with your own driver and host and cook. With delicious food served from one of the region's best chefs, with beachfront access through your condo, and the quiet, lazy atmosphere of our fishing village, you will end your adventure in style.

After it is all said and done, we will head back to Tucson [drive time 6 hours], returning you home reenergized, rested and with great memories of your incredible, one-of-a-kind Sea to Sierra tour. Indeed, we think there is nothing else like it on Earth.

* Besides your four or five night stay at the ranch, your Sea of Cortez stay is personalized according to personal tastes and preferences based on distinct adventures available.  Rates for this 8-10 night adventure: starting at $2,500.00/guest, based on three guests or more in your group. This unique vacation can be eight, nine or ten nights, with you choosing the number of nights at the ocean [4-5]. Please contact us for details and further information.
