Cataviña, Baja California is a small town on Highway 1 in the Mexican state of Baja California. It is located 118 km (74 mi) south of El Rosario and 106 km (66 mi) north of the junction with the road to Bahía de los Ángeles.

The local economy is dependent on tourism, ranching (Rancho Santa Inés, on the outskirts of the town, is an ejido held in common by the residents), and a couple of private vendors selling gasoline from 55 gallon barrels.

Cataviña has a first-rate hotel developed by the National Fund for the Promotion of Tourism in the Mexican government. Nearby are some cave paintings and a field of giant rocks, mixed with desert vegetation, which make the area a place visited for lovers of ecotourism.
