What to expect:
Explore a part of Baja’s history. Meet us on the U.S. side of border in Tecate and jump in with us! Join us for a perfect day trip as we visit the famous archeological site protected by Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia just outside the town of Tecate in El Vallecito. Explore the oldest rock paintings in the region created by a tribe of Native Americans known as the Yuman, who were a predecessor of the Kumeyaay tribe, which inhabited large portions of San Diego County. Don’t miss the most well-known cave painting on site, the famous “El diablito” (pictured left) which depicts a red man with horns. It is said that in the early morning solstice the sun’s rays pass over the painting making the eyes glow. Follow the trail just over a mile through the mystical caves of rock art. After the petroglyph viewing we will enjoy some of the best tacos Baja has to offer.
