Mountain Biking in Los Barriles

Probably one of the most surprising activities available in the area for most new visitors are the miles of world class mountain biking trails in the hills above the Los Barriles area. Word is getting out quickly about this secret gem as these days you will see a lot of top end mountain and e-bikes cruising around the area all throughout the year. The trail system can be accessed from the south near Buenavista or right out of Los Barriles.

If you don’t have your bike with you, bike rentals are available at East Cape Bicicletas in town or through VelaBaja who also offers guided ride packages.

Scuba Diving – Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park

Scuba diving is always so much fun! Swimming with beautiful fish in a clean water is a fantastic chance to explore the underwater life. Cabo Pulmo National Marine park is less than an hour’s drive to the south from Spa Buenavista / Los Barriles. The park is home to one of only 3 coral reefs in the North America. The reef is estimated to be thousands of years old. After being overfished several decades ago, the Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park was established to revitalize the marine life in the area. Marine life has since made an unbelievable comeback and the park is now teaming some 875 marine species including 226 species of reef fishes, 154 of marine invertebrates, 5 species of sea turtles, 3 species of dolphins, 3 species of whales, schools of mobula rays, whale and hammerhead sharks, and a colony of sea lions.

There are many dive shops working in the area these days and trips can be booked online.

The diver in the image is David Castro, a local divemaster of Cabo Pulmo who has been working together with his family, in the protection of the Park that has been close to any fishing activities for the last 17 years. This no-take marine reserve has allowed the recovery of many species and the historical abundance of predatory fish such as Bigeye travellies.
