In our last blog, we talked about Tiki’s Organic Farm and the beautiful agricultural delights of Miraflores. As huge fans of our local farmers, we encourage visitors to venture out of the better-known parts of Cabo and get to know the local culture a little more.
The hard-working local farmers and artisans would love to show you around town, and just a few minutes down the road from Miraflores is another interesting little village called Santiago.
On our most recent visit to Santiago, we witnessed some very exciting horse races. In fact, we were amazed to see a horse that was trained to race without a rider, a custom known as “lomo libre.” Training a horse to race without a jockey is extremely challenging, so it came as quite a surprise when the “lomo libre” horse won her race!
Like many happenings in Baja, the horse races often take place without advance notice, but you can generally catch the races with some regularity from July to December.
Visitors to Santiago on an afternoon of horse racing will be treated to the sight of many ranchers and cowboys lining the dirt track, many of whom bet among one another as the horses are loaded into the chutes.
As horse racing is an important pastime in Baja Sur, we cannot leave out the annual “Derby de los Pueblos.” The Derby is a series of races held in different towns in Baja Sur. These races begin in Santiago on the first of January and end in the last weekend of July in San Ignacio. Throughout the racing season, each Derby host town has a “Patron Saint” celebration week, and during that week there are daily horse races in the town. The winners of these competitions during the festival week earn the right to compete in the Derby the following year.
As in mainland Mexico, horse racing has long been a popular activity for celebrations in Baja. The local ranchers take great pride in their horses, and the residents enjoy any reason to gather and pass the time with friends new and old. All are welcome, so take a day trip up Highway 1 on your next visit to Los Cabos!
Specialty Organic Produce in Los Cabos:
Tiki Organic Farm and Miraflores
At A Matter of Taste Catering & Events, we work hard to provide Los Cabos with a wide variety of catering and private chef services. As culinary professionals and lovers of fine cuisine, we pride ourselves on sourcing Cabo’s finest local and organic ingredients for our delightful dishes.
Since we want the very best specialty organic produce for our clients, we often head to Tiki’s Organic Farm. Tiki’s is located in a growing area of Los Cabos called Miraflores, which is about 30 miles north of the airport in San Jose. This beautiful agricultural wonderland features row after row of the earth’s most amazing fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Besides all the delicious varieties of responsibly farmed produce, Tiki’s is also a visual delight to visit. Surrounded by mountains and rolling hills, this picturesque ranch wows visitors with some of the most beautiful flowers that exist (most of which are edible)! In fact, Miraflores, literally translates to “watch/look at flowers.”
Though the Miraflores area is certainly important to organic produce and flower farming in the Los Cabos area, the town also offers visitors more than just the sights of its rich farmland. Miraflores is also home to a vibrant, traditional community of about 1500 residents, and is considered one of the most important cultural centers for the Los Cabos region.
Visitors to Miraflores in the month of July can enjoy the well-known Pitihaya Fair (la feria de la pitihaya), where many regional delicacies and local artisan goods are sold.
