Our experience was different than many who rated this worthy of 5 stars. We had 10 adults and 6 children ranging in age from 7-15 yo. We drove from San Jose Del Cabo. It took us close to 2 hours. The scenery was beautiful. The...More

If you want to snorkel, YOU MUST START OUT BY 7 to get there before the thermal updrafts draw onshore winds. Diving must be spectacular given how clear and clean the water is. Try using the Windy app, it includes the tides. I use it...More

We rented a car and drove here. It is kinda tricky to find. It is about an hour from San Jose. The last 10 miles is on a gravel road in the desert. You know you are there when you reach a bar/restaurant. It is...More

It was a windy day when we made the drive out here, but still seemed like a pace for divers more than snorkeling. All we saw were cows and the occasional dog.

A drive over slightly rough terrain, but hey, we drove from the Bay Area all the way down to Cabo, so not too much for us, lead to a fantastic setting. Fantastic snorkeling, stunning beaches and felt like another world.

I’m a scuba diver but has never heard about this place in my country. However, since I’ve seen it on a documentary I became obsessed with the idea of diving in there, and now I can say I’ve been to paradise for a couple of...More

Wonderful Marine Park. Coral looks like it is trying to come back. An outstanding variety and quantity of tropical fish. Also saw turtles, whales in the distance, huge schools of jack fish.

We had an amazing snorkeling adventure at the marine preserve. I’ve been in Hawaii and other locations in Mexico but this Marine preserve is the best.. I’ve never had so much live coral and tropical fishes in one place..

Another great trip to Cabo Pulmo with Amigos Del Mar! We were out by the island to the southwest and were in multiple schools of fish; one was on the order of hundreds of thousand anchovies. It was like being in a cloud of tiny...More

We spent a lovely quiet holiday in Cabo Pulmo, walking the beaches, north and south, as far down as Arbolito's. There used to be a sign announcing the Marine Preserve, but I think the hurricane took it away. There is a new interpretive center on...More

There is absolutely no problem driving from either Cabo or La Paz but I would recommend a 4 wheel drive car as the 10km or so is a dirt track. We were in Mexico for 2 weeks and saw no crime whatsoever..
