I have been to a lot of snorkel reefs around the world and I think I enjoyed snorkeling here the best. The Playa Los Arbolitos is the only coral reef within the Sea of Cortez and is the Oldest along the East Pacific maybe 20,000 years old. National Geographic called this area the "Baha Miracle" A no take zone was... More

we signed up for a 3 hour snorkel tour at Cabo Pulmo Snokel and it turned out to be one of the best we have ever experienced anywhere. Our guide Daniel took us out to four separate areas, first he took us to see whales, we followed four of them at 100 yards for a half an hour, and then... More

I've come here several times over the last 20 years. The first was just with my new wife -- it was a great adventure and romantic too. Now we come with kids and our friends. There are great beaches to explore, the snorkeling is great, and it's very easy and relaxing to stay here. We rent bungalows and dine in... More

We have been trying to get here for years and it certainly was worth the wait. Getting to Cabo Pulmo is like going back in time in old Mexico. The drive here is just beautiful and then you come into the Marine Park. The water is beautiful and it is the most beautiful reef I have seen in a long... More

So glad this place exists. Vibrant marine life which has rebounded mightily from over-fishing/harvesting in decades past. Having been protected since 1995 and pretty tightly regulated now, abundant sea life makes it a home.

This is such a special place. Being completely protected for over 20 years has yielded a bounty of sea life. Schools of fish are large and plentiful and there is great variety. Dive sites are also pretty tightly controlled and self-policed by the dive operators keeping things from getting crowded. You will likely only be diving with the people in... More

A guided tour snorkeling in the marine park was fabulous. It is the Northern-most reef in the Pacific (Sea of Cortez) of North America. Coral was not very colorful but marine life was plentiful. Swim with colorful Fish, sea lions, whales, manta rays, tortoise. Balanced ecology in the marine park.

We were doubtful when we were told we would see coral reefs, tropical fish by thousands, sea turtles, sea lions, whales and bull sharks all in one $45 / 2.5 hour boat trip! Well, every promise was kept! It was fun, safe and exhilarating! Mask, snorkel and fins provided. Also wet suit and life vest were included. Of course, wearing... More
