Salvatore took us to San Borjitas Cave Paintings in the Sierra de Guadeloupe. It was a long ride, but a fantastic experience for all. His historical knowledge and professionalism were awesome and greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend him as a Mulege area guide.

While the tour itself was interesting and informative, Salvador was unprofessional and inappropriate with me as a solo female traveler.

My goal with this review is to caution others so you do not have the same experience I did.

Trinidad canyon cave paintings with our guide Salvador was great. He picked us up at our Airb&b. First stop was at an orange orchard where sampled oranges, grapefruit, and mandarins. Lovely. We drove towards canyon de Trinidad stopping at an ancient cactus and listened his wide knowledge of local medicinal plants. At the ranch we hiked up the canyon and stopped at 2 caves. Don Salvador has been doing these tours for a long time and knows the history very well. A great day.

I have always wanted to see real Baja cave paintings since first learning of them several years ago. However, I am not a rugged outdoorsy type capable of mule riding, rock climbing or desert camping, so it seemed an impossible dream. Until today! Salvador, who is an officially registered guide, offers a 7 hour excursion to 2 accessible sites in Sierre de Guadalupe via SUV, bringing along snacks, water and lunch. There is even a very clean restroom at Trinidad Ranch, which one can visit before entering the beautiful canyon for a brief hike along a brook to the caves. Salvador is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastically shares his wealth of information about the ancient, post-contact and natural history of the Mulegé region. He is a local, but English is excellent. Best of all, I finally experienced the real deal I had only read about in books or seen in pictures in museums and magazines.
Salvador charges a very reasonable rate of $1000 pesos p/p. To bring a camera or cell phone, the archeological controlling agency charges $45 pesos, and the ranch owner, whose land and bathroom one uses, asks for $100 pesos p/p. Highly recommend good hiking boots and poles, if you have them. The ranch can supply walking sticks.

I made this day trip to the rock paintings when I traveled through Mulegé on my world tour 2017/18. The journey and especially the paintings were interesting. But if you've already traveled through semi-desert areas, there are not so many new things to see here. Given this, it was one of the worst value for money trips on my entire world tour. Maybe it could just be worth it for rock art enthusiasts. But for nature lovers who are interested in landscapes, nature and, maybe, photography, I can not recommend it at the price asked.

Salvador was wonderfully informative, and very helpful and gracious as well. We really learned so much from him, and enjoyed our long trek into the canyon at La Trinidad where we got to see not just one site, but two! The paintings were close enough to touch, although we didn't! The tour was marvelous, and Salvador's ham sandwich with avocado lived up to its reputation. We're coming back, and plan to hire Salvador to guide us to San Borjitas, where we hear the cave paintings are even more spectacular!

The four of us booked a day trip with Salvador to visit the cave paintings on the Rancho Trinidad. We were staying at a house on Coyote Bay and Salvador visited us first to explain the day and cost etc., We the met Dalvador in Mulege and used his van to travel out to the cave paintings located at Rancho el Trinidad. The ride out was on a bumpy road which included a stop and very old cacti and an explanation of the different cactus and their healing properties. We then continued on to the ranch where we then hiked in to the canyon. There are two sets of paintings and Salvador gave us a great explanation of the history and origin. We were also given the option to continue hiking to the second set of paintings which was well worth it.
The trip back to Mulege was finished up with a visit to the Mission which was sadly closed due to it being a holiday. All in all a great day out with Salvador who is a very good guide passionate about what he does.

Today was the second time Salvador has guided me and others to the cave paintings. This is a must see if you have the slightest interest in the history of Baja. Tennis shoes are a minimum. No sandals, flip flops or open toed shoes.
Salvador was born in Mulege and his knowledge of local history is very interesting.
I highly recommend this tour.

I found Salvador on Trip Advisor. I called his number on a Sunday and he responded within an hour. He was able to set up the tour for the following morning. He picked us up and we drove out to a private ranch, making a few stops along the way share his plant and local area knowledge. Besides the historical information explaining the paintings, he had great local knowledge regarding Baja and his native Mulege. He answered all our questions and went out oh his way to entertain us. After viewing the first painting location he asked if we would like to hike on further to another site, although this required more walking and a short swim. He provided a waterproof container to keep our things dry. I highly recommend this part which is no additional cost, being a hot day the swim was very refreshing and there were additional painting designs. Bring some extra water with you and wear comfortable hiking or tennis shoes, also include some sturdy watershoes or swim and hike in same shoes as we did. The trail is good but there are spots that take slow steady steps. Upon return to the ranch where we started our hike he provided us with great sandwiches and cold drinks in a shady spot.
