El Bajo • El Cantil • Vencedor • Esperanza • Islotes • Bajo de 100
Cabo Pulmo is a very small and cozy village located at the “East Cape” of Los Cabos. The abundance of marine life, makes this magical place unique. Therefore it attracts scuba divers from all over the world. The scuba diving reef of Cabo Pulmo is thought to be 20,000 years old while being the most northern coral reef in the eastern Pacific. Since the finger shaped reef of Cabo Pulmo runs parallel to the coast the dive sites are fairly shallow.
The Mexican President, Ernesto Zedillo, declared the area surrounding Cabo Pulmo to be a National Marine Park on June 5, 1995. As a result, marine life was allowed to flourish. There are more than 10 beautiful scuba diving and snorkeling sites in Cabo Pulmo marine reserve. Scuba divers often dive with large schools of fish like big eye jacks, snappers, pork fish in addition to several types of rays. In addition there are incredibly large groupers, the occasional bull sharks and also manta rays. We have more than 15 years of experience in scuba diving and snorkeling in Cabo Pulmo and therefore always choose the best dive sites according to the daily conditions.

– Local regulations do not allow gloves and dive knifes.
– Maximum dive time of 45 minutes.

August – December: The water will be warmer, clearer and there will be less wind than at other times of the year. Being further north east the park has the advantage of being further from the Pacific Ocean during swell season and often the diving conditions here are less affected than in Cabo during this time. Spring and summer
January – July: Spring and summer sees the return of the north winds which chill the surface temperatures down and can change in a matter of days, especially when the upwelling from the northern Pacific makes its way round the peninsular.
