Sand waterfall.

Los Cabos has an underwater wonder that was hidden for many centuries, it is a phenomenon that we can observe in few places. It is formed by the friction between the North American and Pacific tectonic plates, added to the union of the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of ​​​​Cortez, since it was not discovered until 1959 in an expedition led by F.P Shepard. This wonder is located in the bay of Los Cabos at a depth of 30 meters. Its peculiarity is unique since specific conditions are needed for them to occur, there are few in the world and they originate, when the cold and persistent wind cools the surface sea waters, they increase in density and, consequently, they sink en masse and at great speed. forming masses of water that flow through canyons located thousands of meters deep. These underwater waterfalls carry large amounts of water and sediment, which erode the bottom, as well as organic matter of high nutritional value that serves as food for the creatures of the abyssal depths.”
