The waterfall is well worth the effort. Cascada Sol Del Mayo is a good 1hour drive from San Jose del Cabo. The last several miles are through sandy dirt roads. I LOVE a good adventure and this was awesome. Once you are on the dirt road, there is pretty good signage to help you find your way. The trick is to head through Santiago and head toward the Zoo.
The hike to the waterfall has points that are very steep and precarious but there is a huge payoff at the end. In my opinion it is the perfect hike. It's really pretty short...maybe 10 to 15 minutes.
There is a restaurant at the parking area that I heard was very good. We did not eat there but the people were super friendly.
Keep in mind there is a fee (I think 60 pesos) so be prepared.
The water at the falls is very clean and very cold. We all stripped down to our skivvies and dove in. I would recommend water shoes. Some people were jumping off the rocks by the falls (which was super fun to watch) but our family is a bit chicken.
This is a great adventure for families with teens. It would probably be a bit intense for little kids (younger than 10).
Hope you go and enjoy the experience.
