La Ventana

Part of the charm of Rancho Sotol is its location in La Ventana, a small fishing village that retains the traditional charm of Baja – before the chain hotels and nightclubs.  La Ventana is also emerging as a world-class destination for travellers from all over the world, from kitesurfing enthusiasts to visitors looking for a more authentic Baja experience.

On the shores of the Sea of Cortez, which Jacques Cousteau famously described as the “World’s Aquarium,” Rancho Sotol gazes upon the area that UNESCO named a world heritage site in 2005, for its outstanding natural beauty and biodiversity. La Ventana has been named as the world’s best location for windsurfing and kitesurfing, all located in Mexico’s least populate state. Only an hour’s drive away from Rancho Sotol is Cabo Pulmo, Mexico’s national marine park that is home to over 800 species of marine animals and some of the best waters for diving and snorkeling in the world.

But Rancho Sotol is far from remote. Located only 30 minutes south of La Paz, Rancho Sotol is conveniently close to Baja California’s capitol city, and two hours from Los Cabos. Residents at Rancho Sotol have easy access to several small markets in La Ventana, beach clubs, hardware shops, a gas station and a medical center. There is even an organic market and the occasional Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) event. The real treasure of Rancho Sotol, however, is the pristine nature of the surrounding landscapes. Beaches here feel secluded, the views are unobstructed, and the lack of light pollution guarantees some of the best stargazing in the area. Residents enjoy quiet nights and a sense of privacy, in a unique environmental landscape.
