We heard about the waterfalls and decided to take a day trip from Los Barriles. We looked on-line for directions and the ones we found were horrible. But after several back- tracks we found it. A beautiful site but a little cold for swimming. The only downside was that they do not allow dogs to go to the waterfall which... More

A short (10/15 minutes) path through the beautiful landscape takes you to the waterfall. The pond has crystal clear, very cold water (it was not that hot on the day so we did not swim in it), surrounded by big boulders, low vegetation and tall cacti. The water runs through the rocks and a little downstream there is a small... More

Rancho Sol de Mayo does have the beautiful waterfall which is spectacular and a refreshing anomaly - something unexpected in the Baja Sierras. In addition to this feature, you will be able to meet several Xolos, the hairless, national dog of Mexico. The official name is Xoloitzcuintli. In the early 1950's this 3,500 year old species almost became extinct but... More

The best place we've been in that area. I could stay there all nine days. Clean, with a easy access (even tough is far from the cities, a car ride is enough to get there) and BEAUTIFUL.

We drove to the falls from San Jose del Cabo. Like other reviews the drive is half the fun especially once you are on the dirt road. The falls are nice and the hike is fine just note it is steep in places and about a 15 minute walk from where you park your car.

So I have been a few times here. It's fun. You get to hike and see beautiful scenery. I have gone with friends and family a few times. But after my Visit there this last time i noticed my front license plate was missing. My friend who is a local immediately said it was probably taken at the falls while... More

Adobe cabins, fascinating landscapes and gracious hosts, Sr. de la Pena and Sra. Celeste, greet you as family. Their rancho is stunningly beautiful with native landscapes in an eco-system like none other. The short walk to the river canyon is easy and when you come upon the first view of the waterfall far below, it takes your breath away. Then... More

I recently got shut out from my dream SCUBA dive trip to the Cabo Pulmo marine reserve by tropical storm Newton's turbulent seas, and luckily the Cabo Pulmo resort staff directed me to a day trip here. It's located about 60-90 minutes away from Cabo Pulmo, depending to how fast you drive dirt roads & on how many wrong turns... More

Took us better part of two hours to drive from La Ventana. Scenery was phenominal! Entered Rancho Sol de Mayo, bought some water at the restaurant, then began our trek to the waterfall. Very nice trail, although it is steep with tight steps in many places. If guests are unable to navigate down, the trail offers several locations to view... More

Great place to visit while in Cabo . It was a good road trip away from the beaches. Just look up fox canyon on google maps to get there. Very nice scenery on the way and when you get there. Great swimming hole at the end of a very steep hike. The roads are a little bumpy but was worth... More
