Life has had you racing with traffic, deadlines and responsibilities. It's time to slow down and soak in mesmerizing views wrapped in warm colors under a vibrant sky. Striking rock formations, indigenous vegetation and abundant wildlife are just some of the gems you'll find on a hike or bike ride through the surrounding desert. Raise your eyes to the majestic Sierra Mountains or stretch your site to the ends of the ocean. Whether on a guided hike or biking along a beaten path, the magic of the Baja will spread out before you. A popular excursion includes touring nearby Sierra de la Laguna, but there are lots of options to choose from, including Santiago, with its pristine waterfalls. Just take plenty of water, sunscreen and a map.
