Rancho Leonero Resort sits along the East Cape area of Baja and over looks the Sea of Cortez. This is a traditional sporting and vacation getaway is located at the junction of tropical beaches and tranquil desert. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The food is a combination of American and Mexican cuisine. This is a true anglers destination!


The resort is well stocked with a good selection of wine, liquor and beer. We recommend you sample the selection of fine mezcal. If you're not staying at Rancho Leonero, there are a number of places to buy alcohol in Los Barriles.


When fishing from our panga’s, we typically leave the hotel by 6:00-6:30AM, and usually be back to the resort between 2:00 – 2:30PM.
