Visit the Nature Reserves

San Quintín’s natural protected areas are perfect places for nature lovers.

In this bay we protect the Punta Mazo Nature Reserve and the Monte Ceniza Nature Reserve, both certified by the federal government as Areas Voluntarily Destined for Conservation.

In these nature reserves you can go camping, kayaking, surfing, spend the day at the beach, trail running, mountain cycling, take pictures and so much more!
