Baja is mostly known for its deserts and beaches but the mountains not only offer incredible views but also amazing places to visit like oasis, waterfalls and hot springs in various areas with different plant and animal life.
One of these amazing places to visit is at the base of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains outside of 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 separate 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.
Santiago is a small town located 46 km north of the Los Cabos Airport (SJD) in San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur. At about 42km you make a left turn off Highway 1 to Santiago. If you are planning on going to Cañon del Zorro (Canyon of the Fox) waterfall and pool then at the far end of a divided avenue before actually entering Santiago plaza, you will make a right turn and go up a hill for about .5km through intersection and then turn left at the crest of hill at 1.3Km then at 1.7 km turn right and 4km you will see a sign for Cañon de la Zorra follow that fork for 9.7 km After passing a rancho officially called the Rancho Ecológico Sol de Mayo (Eco-park May Sun)with a gate. You will pass through and arrive at a parking area where there is generally someone keeping an eye on the area as well as there is a simple bathroom. this is really just one of the amazing places to visit in Baja California Sur.
