Very interesting and historic spot in the middle of nowhere
Oct. 2020 • Couples
This place is literally in the middle of nowhere, with a very small town down the road. The paintings themselves are very cool, very old and there's a lot more to be learned online from them, as the info on the site is washed away by the sun and unreadable. This is a must-see spot, though.

Great rock paintings
Feb. 2019 • Friends
A lovely stop and a great 10-minute hike up to the small cave and colorful rock paintings. Informative interpretive signs along the trail are very interesting. Should see!

Exotic nature
Jan. 2018 • Friends
Coming from Sweden this nature and all the endemic species were really exotic to see, specially came for this. The rock paintings were also awesome, imagining that people were on the exactly same spot a couple of thousands years ago. Paths with signs that told the story of the indigenous people and the presence of the jesuits in the area, too bad the signs only were in spanish.

interesting stop
Jan. 2017 • Friends
This cultural/historical site is a nice stop along travels north or south. Directions from outdated guide books are confusing. The place is now well marked with a sign (NOT the stop at the geodesic dome, but the next stop south at KM 171. The trail is well marked, with informational signs and pit toilets. This area also has blue palm trees. While these rupestres are not as magnificent as the bigger sites (requiring a permit and a guide), they are very accessible and interesting.

Small Example but Worthy!

These cave paintings are very interesting though they don't have the size or the imagery of their larger cousins further south. However, they are so easy to visit and in such a beautiful area full of life that I highly recommend seeing them on your drive south or north.

Hundred plus miles south ensenada
Oct. 2015 • Solo
North of catevina three miles and catevina is THE place to stay if near there at night. Great cave paintings, lots in area and in a semi river bottom area. Worth seeing.

Ancient Baja rock carving and painting
Sep. 2015 • Family
From the California border and for 600 miles south, there are spectacular rock carvings and colorful rock paintings. These are thought to be at least 10,000 to 13,000 years old. They are leavings of the first peoples who entered the Americas. Many are close enough for the traveler to find themselves. The really special ones are further in.There are certified guides at many of the larger towns onthe way down the Baja peninsula. Where they are shaded from the sun, these paintings are very colorful. The drawings are accurate depictions of people, animals and sealife. If this type of travel interests you, it is a must-see. Best time of year is from late October to early April.

Never found this site
Jan. 2016 • Family
The coordinates on the trip advisor map/directions were totally wrong. 😜
It took us to a trash dump in the town of Ensenada.

I guess you will need to use other directions to find the cave paintings. I think it is actually a number of hours away.

These old rock paintings are losing their lustre, but are still worth the trip to see. The only other similar paintings that I am familiar with are above Loreto
