On our road trip over to the East Cape in Baja, we also went to visit the waterfall at Santiago.
Bajainsider says, “Santiago is a small pueblo located 46 km north of the, Los Cabos Airport (SJD), San Jose Del Cabo, Baja Sur. At about 42km you make a left turn off Highway 1 to Santiago…”
Follow the signs (or ask someone like we did) to a rancho officially called the Rancho Ecológico Sol de Mayo. There will be a gate you will pass through and arrive at a parking area where you will find someone to direct you. You can pay a small fee to go the waterfall. We stayed in one of their cabinas so it came with the room.
The walk there wasn’t too bad. A little steep in some spots but there were stairs built into the rock. Bring your own water, snacks and towel. There is a rustico bathroom right at the start of the trail.
It’s beautiful as you can see. There are lots of watering holes to take a dip in.
One can climb above the falls and find even more pools to swim in.
And the rocks have some pretty cool and beautiful patterns on them.
This one (below) looked like an eyeball.
I liked this heart rock formation.
We stayed in one of their cabins that was about $30 or so a night.
It was very comfortable!
Inside the cabin was a bed and bathroom and across from that outside was a kitchen building with an upstairs area we could sit and watch the stars. Each cabin had their own kitchen. We did have their breakfast (you have to pay for) in the morning at the main building where you enter the area.
This sun and moon kiss sculpture is inspiring one of my paintings. Stay tuned for more about that.
We cooked dinner by candlelight as there was no electricity. They supplied us with a bunch of candles so it was fun.
It was a beautiful sunset.
I highly recommend this adventure!
