Picture-Postcard Towns, Baja California, Mexico

In the heart of the Trinidad Sierra, on the road between the East Cape and Los Cabos, there are several charming villages and hamlets whose inhabitants are artisan-farmers who devote themselves to handcraft production and fruit farming.

Santiago de los Coras

A small town in Baja California Sur on Federal Highway #1 some 35 miles (56km) north of San Jose del Cabo. Almost exactly on the Tropic of Cancer. An attractive place to visit is the town zoo (the only one in BCS) and the museum containing enormous fossils.

  • Coordinates: 23° 28' 55" N  / 109 °43' 06" W

In the town of Santiago de los Coras you'll find the Mission of Santiago de Los Coras, founded in 1721.

Padre Napoli, who founded the Mission mistakenly believed that the people living south of La Paz were Coras as they were in his original settlement south of Santa Ana, they were actually Pericú. The lovely mission building has been rebuilt with several modifications to the original structure.
