Fabuloous

This was a definite highlight of our stay. Enrique is a great guide, and the dogs are an added bonus! This hike was not difficult if you are in any shape at all. The views are breath-taking. I'm 64 and out-paced evreyone there :-)

Difficult but worth the view
Jun. 2021
I found this hike difficult but very worth it. I am 50 years old and in shape and my daughters are 22 and 19 and in shape as well but we all thought this isn't for the faint at heart. The first part of the ascent is a slow/moderate uphill - no problem. The 2nd half of the ascent I was huffing & puffing and actually had to stop and rest. I would recommend being hands free (use a fanny pack or lightweight backpack to hold your water) as you will need your hands to grab onto rocks as you climb. Also recommend only closed toe, sturdy shoes. ( no Tevas, Chacos, etc) The view at the top is stunning. Enrique, your guide, is knowledgeable and personable. We had about 35 people in our group. I would arrive early at the gate (8:00am) as the group will depart 8:15-8:25 to begin. It was about 10:15 when we were done but that time frame did include 3 different rest periods throughout the hike.

Afraid of Beights?
May 2021 • Family
I have heard SO much about this hike. I know several (fit) ladies in their 70’s who do it a few times a year. Should be no problem. For me. Ha.

The hike wasn’t the issue. It was the heights for me. There are some steep areas that I had to cling to the rocks. Knees knocked a little bit.

About half way up I started to wonder...”do we go back DOWN this same trail???”

I am 50 yrs old, don’t workout, 6’ tall and 230lbs. Not in great shape, but not “terrible”. I was definitely huffing at the top. Took me a good 10 minutes to cool down and catch my breath.

The views are AMAZING. Some of the other hikers were taking selfies in spots that seemed stupid, but no one fell. Ha. Spent about 30-40 minutes up top, and started the decent on the backside.

Going down was much easier to navigate. Took about 35 to get up and 20 to come down. If you do not have a fear of heights, probably the best place for views in cabo.

Went on a Sunday. About 30-35 people from all walks of life. Everyone had their own pace. If you walk in the back, you can pace yourself better. If you walk near the front, you see where the dogs poop and easier to avoid stepping in it. Damn, those dogs poop a lot.

My legs were SORE the day after. My son laughed. It was easy for him.

Cabo's Best Ocean Sunset Hike Review
Dec. 2020
This is the most spectacular ocean sunset hike in Cabo! In my YouTube video, I show just how breathtaking the views at the top are!
Enrique is the owner of the property and personally guides 2 tours a day. The meeting location is only a 10 minute drive outside of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Meeting Times: 8:15am and 4:15pm (arrive 10 - 15 minutes early)
Duration: 2 hours
Difficulty: moderately difficult
Bring: sneakers, water, sunscreen, and your best cameras
This is a free hike. I'd highly recommend tipping Enrique $10 to $20 if you enjoyed the experience.

Such a fun experience!! If you aren’t in great shape it will be challenging! It was a little scary at certain spots but so so worth it. We are dog lovers and absolutely loved the dogs with us. So beautiful!

Dog whisperer hike
Apr. 2021 • Couples
This was a little bit of a hike but worth it. There are some places some might find challenging so be prepared. Bring water snd comfy shoes. The views at the top and aling the way are spectacular. The dogs, if you like them, are a bonus. It is private property so when he says be there early he isn't joking. He locked the gates and we could hear people yelling when we started out. I would highly reccomend this and leave a nice tip too.

Very glad we did this!!! Definitely a highlight!
Apr. 2021
Thanks for a fantastic experience, Enrique! My wife and I (mid 30s) did this hike, along with ~10 pups of all kinds of types and ages, and had an absolute blast. The views were spectacular throughout the hike, and having the dogs with you was great. Enrique took a couple brief pauses along the way to provide a history of the mountain and to let people catch their breath.

The intensity of the hike may be intimidating for some people, but as long as you are comfortable at times climbing up some small/midsize rocks, you should be fine. Definitely bring shoes, sunscreen and water.

Some tips: our hike started at 8:15am sharp, but definitely check ahead as I think sometimes the schedule changes. Also, you should plan to arrive no later than 5 minutes prior, as Enrique is very punctual. I witnessed late arrivers being turned away. It's also definitely worth figuring out your taxi or parking plan the night before. If you're going on a weekend, keep in mind that a large chunk of the streets downtown by the marina are closed off on Sunday mornings. If you park, there's a small lot in front of the Mercado Marina (I attached a map screenshot for reference of where to park and where to meet).

I hope you do this hike - you definitely won't regret it!

One of my all time best days in Cabo!
Apr. 2021
I have been visiting Cabo for over 20 years, this was my first time hiking to the top of Mt. Solmar. What an incredible experience. Enrique has a dog rescue/boarding and about 15 dogs came with us on the hike. I'm not in the greatest shape but was able to complete the hike. Bring some water and wear tennis shoes. There are a few spots where you need your hands to support you up the mountain. I am so happy I completed this hike. The most amazing views of Cabo. We all tipped Enrique $20 to support him and his dog rescue. Enrique is an amazing guide, very knowledgeable. I loved the history and spirituality on his experience in Cabo.

AWESOME!
Mar. 2021
My husband and I hiked up the mountain with about 10 other people and dogs. It was a highlight of our trip! The views are stunning at the top! It is well worth the time and effort! We got to the gate at 8:00 a.m. for the 8:15 tour. Some people arrived at 8:15 and were not let in on our hike. Make sure you get there at 8:00 and bring a mask.
