Cabo-adventures was outstanding, from beginning to end. We took a day trip to Cabo Pulmo for snorkeling, and saw a rare coral reef with beautiful tropical fish, whales (seasonal) and a sea turtle followed by a relaxing lunch in an open-air restaurant. It was perfect...More

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

We are not experienced snorkelers, but were supplied with everything we needed to enjoy the experience. The beauty of Mexico and the warmth of the people make this area wonderful. So glad they are protecting the coral reefs and wildlife that live there.

In 585 logged dives, this registers as the worst destination I have ever experienced. There is no coral, it’s all rocks, water was thick green with limited visibility. No sealife to see on entire first dive. It reminded me of diving Lake Erie in 1978....More

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.

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.
