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.

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..

This was a great secluded beach with some amazing snorkeling but with a few suggestions. Try to go when it is a calm sunny day. The first day we went it was REALLY windy and the waves were huge which made snorkeling very difficult. We...More

Cabo Pulmo Sports Center is the one I used. They charged $40 a person and were very helpful and friendly. They have a tiki shack right at the beach front. They take USD and credit card.
