Hidden Treasures in Los Cabos: Santiago & San Dionisio

Baja is synonymous with the crystalline waters and the adventure-filled desert, but beyond the everyday lies a mountain range, the Sierra de la Laguna, that have produced an incredible microclimate like no other. With the desert, sand and sea and mountains in our backyard, a myriad of opportunities exist to see nature’s finest work first hand and experience adventure for all ages within the natural amenities of the Baja.

Just about an hour north of San Jose on Highway 1 lies the small town of Santiago. From here, experience a guided tour to the waterfalls. Or, walk the one-mile hike on your own! The trail to the waterfalls is for both novice and experienced hikers and explorers, free of cliffs or any potential hazards. At the bottom of the falls awaits a freshwater swimming area with rocks ideally placed for jumping and fun. Pack a picnic and spend time in the tranquil Baja oasis.

San Dionisio
Approximately 40 minutes from Santiago lies the quaint town of San Dionisio. The small rural community is home to approximately 50 people permanently, and 14 ranches scattered throughout the area. Nearly all of the ranches welcome visitors and offer guided tours for mountain climbing, rappelling, swimming in natural pools, viewing the cave paintings, identifying flora and more. A popular attraction is La Poza Oscura, a Baja California Sur wonder that plunges 15 meters deep and offers refreshing swimming, diving, and snorkeling. Be sure to stop at El Refugio to experience traditional Mexican fare like fresh tortillas, jams and more.

Visitors come to encounter authentic Baja and to cultivate their soul and spirit.

Be sure to experience all that is Baja while you are here.
