Viva Tequila


The palmed oasis of San Ignacio is located in a small fertile valley (89 miles south of Guerrero Negro). Called Kadakaaman (red grass river) by the Cochimies, it was discovered November 19, 1716 by the Jesuit Francisco María Piccolo. The mission was later founded January 20, 1728, by the Jesuit Juan Bautista Luyando.

San Ignacio, gateway to the cave paintings of the Sierra de San Francisco, is protected as a historical site by UNESCO. You must contact INAH next to the mission in order to obtain rules, regulations and permits to visit the cave paintings.

Part of the Viscaiño Bioreserve, San Ignacio Lagoon is the national shelter of the gray whale, located 19 miles southwest of the city. A refuge to countless species of birds and reptiles, San Ignacio also offers hotels, restaurants, RV Parks, a paved runway, bus depot, gas station and tours to cave paintings and the Lagoon, among many other services.
