El Salto de Santa Rosa

El Salto de Santa Rosa, an incredible gateway just minutes from Ensenada.

After a walk of 2 km surrounded by flower and fauna with incredible mountain ranges and rocks, you will enjoy nature at its best, in the rainy season a river is born here that guides you to a  majestic cascade of 15 meters. If you want a more sedentary experience get ready to enjoy a picnic in nature. It is ideal for camping or spending the day. In the shades of the trees and the creek you will be in a cool climate place, but during the day the temperature can reach 30 C remember you are in between the Pacific and the desert, so when the sun goes down temperatures can get considerable low. If your idea is camping, be sure to carry everything you need.
