Most travelers come to Baja for its renowned marine life and activities, but a trip to its mountains will reveal an enchanting world filled with hidden pearls. Outside the quaint mission town of Santiago, the desert landscape transitions into a lush, rocky jungle of cacti, brush, and trees. This is the magical Sierra de la Laguna. Ramble down trails and scramble over boulders to swimming holes, hot springs, and waterfalls. These naturally occurring grottos are so secluded, serene, and unlike anything you’ve likely ever seen, that it’s hard to distinguish reality from reverie.
