Baja is mostly known for its deserts and beaches but the mountains not only offer incredible views but oasis, waterfalls and hot springs in various areas with different plant and animal life.
One of these areas is at the base of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains outside the town of Santiago in Baja California Sur. This can be a great day trip from anywhere from Los Cabos to Los Barilles and all of the East Cape area. The coolness of the air with large Fichus shade trees, breezes and cold water these areas can be very refreshing.
There are 2 seperate places that you may want to visit. The Canyon del Zorro (Fox Canyon) or the Aguas Calientes (Hot Water) area with hot springs and cold pools and creek hiking. Both Canyon del Zorro and Aguas Calientes are incredible areas to visit but difficult to enjoy both in the same day.
