I can't give you detailed answers but the system being used more and more along the coast in Quintana Roo is called a Wetlands. Whether this would work in the desert of Baja I don't know. These people would know however, http://www.ceakumal.org/ , this organization has been a driving force in converting the septic systems for many places. Here is their page on wetlands and how they work http://ceakumal.org/catalog_12233.html
Sorry I don't know much more, I've spent lots of time in places that use them and they seem to work, I've hung out in restaurants next to them and there is no smell and they are beautiful, and I will probably be paying my share for one to be installed at our condo building in the next year or so.
Hope this helps,
