Apart from the coastal road itself, which stretches from Todos Santos to San Carlos on Bahia Magdalena, there are innumerable old trails, roads and arroyos of varying difficulty that may be explored. The Baja 1000 race route is directly outside the ranch main gate.
Rancho la Aguja is surrounded by an immense landscape of mesas and cardonales (cardon cactus forests). The coastal area is largely uninhabited, and the hiker or biker can choose from endless beaches, trips through the cardonal forests, or less-challenging walks up the Arroyo La Aguja itself (which stretches way beyond the Transpeninsular Highway). There are several species of deer that may be seen.
Coastal living in Playas Pacificas is enhanced by the fact that we have one of the two safe beaches on the entire southern Pacific Coast. The South Beach at the point slopes gradually with none of the usual Pacific-side undertow or rip currents. Even children may swim safely here (under supervision of course). Low tide at Playas' rocky point provides an exploration paradise for all ages. Not only does the low tide provide access to extensive marine habitat with tropical fish, exotic shells and at least 5 species of crabs, but it leaves tide-pools warmed by the Baja sun that are perfect for those who like to swim in calmer waters than the open beaches.
