Our tour guide took us here when our snorkeling trip had low visibility. And we are so grateful that he did! What a magical oasis in the desert! The hike back up is a little tough on creaky knees, but well worth it!!

This place is beyond words. It is a hidden treasure. It may be a little difficult to find, but the destiny is worth it. The entrance is $126 pesos. You have to walk down to arrive to the waterfall. I think it’s not recomendable for...More

Yes, the road is dusty but the hike to the waterfall is fun and the waterfall is awesome. The town of Santiago is an oasis in the desert. Everything is green & lush.

After a shortish jaunt along a bumpy desert road, you come to the Ejido buildings to be welcomed by the friendly resident dog and one of the knowledgeable owners. After paying the modest entrance fee - which goes towards conservation of the area - you...More

The hike was a little more intense than I was expecting but is not too strenuous. Not for people with bad knees! So beautiful. Go while the sun is you and it’s hot because you will want to swim.

This is a terrific spot for anyone more interested in a self-guided vacation than packaged tours. Definitely worth the trip for anyone in Los Cabos, or southern Baja. It's about 1.5 hours from the hotel corridor (a little more from Cabo San Lucas, a little...More
