The remoteness of this location is one of the things that makes it so special. But you will still find a hand full of surprisingly good restaurant options. Be sure to dive with Blue Passion Baja for the best dive experience.

Dived through East Cape Adventures and were really impressed about their ethics - only three boats at any one site and all dive companies have to request sites and times through them. Very good.

Best enormous schools of big fish dives I have ever been on. The staff were great. Dives were terrific. You dive here to see the abundance of sea life. It is well worth the trip!

Two hour drive from Cabo for some very mediocre snorkeling- not worth it. There are 3 or 4 nice little snorkel/scuba outfits that will take you out, but the visibility isn't great and even if it is the best reef in baja, that's not saying...More

Went here on a snorkel trip from buena vista. It's a bit of a rough road in a few spots since its a dirt road as you approach the preserve from the main road. But worth it. A nice place to see the diverse marine...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.
