This is one of the most spectacular places on earth, and very easy to get to. You just fly into Cabo and find somebody willing to take you into the Sierra. All the tourists go to the edges, so you will find very few people here in the center.
Definetly one of my favorite unappreciated places at Baja Sur! YOU MUST GO!
