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

The sea life I saw while diving was amazing. Worth the effort to get there. I will return for many more days diving soon

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

Best snorkeling experience in the area. A good 2.5 hour drive from Cabo San Lucas. Although it rained we were still able to snorkel. It was like sticking your head into a tropical aquarium only its the real deal. Despite the weather I felt completely...More

We went diving here in July 2017. While the damage to the reef is noticeable from warming water temps, it's very obvious that the conservation effort here is making a difference. There were humongous sting rays and schools of jacks and yellow tails that were...More

It's worth the drive. The snorkeling is a lot of fun. But it's pretty hardcore. I wouldn't recommend it for a first timer. That being said, no need to be a pro but it's better to know if you like it before you get very...More

Amazing place, lots of fish life although coral quite limited. Saw jumping mobula rays, a couple of bull sharks and large schools of fish, including a school of the biggest jacks I have ever seen

Snorkelling is great and no boats or groups required. Head to beach a few miles south for easy access. Dirt roads can be rough but fine if you slow down. We had a Jetta rental and no problems. Great spot. Have fun.
