ABOUT CABO PULMO
Cabo Pulmo is a quiet beach village located 60 miles north of Cabo San Lucas on the Sea of Cortez.
A charming, peaceful village, off the power grid and powered by solar and generator back up in the National Marine Park. Clean, healthy water comes from the mountain behind the village. There are no hotels but there are many cozy rental homes and bungalows available in all sizes and great camping on the beach. You will feel very relaxed and welcome here.
The best way into the area is to fly into Los Cabos International Airport (San Jose del Cabo), Mexico and drive the approximate 90 minutes. You also have the option to fly into La Paz, but must expect a two and one half to three hour drive to Cabo Pulmo. You’ll want to bring your supplies with you, as this area is less inhabited, and you will not find regular markets here to stock your shelves. Sometimes it’s best to drive from SJDC airport into CSL, make a Costco stop, and then take the scenic drive through San Jose Del Cabo through the East Cape and up to your final destination.
As the wind surfing capital of the world, it’s apparent that you’ll find the weather here a bit chillier than south on the peninsula due to the high winds that motivate our touristic economy. In addition, we are a snorkeling and surfing capital, where the temps average 10 degrees less than in Cabo in the cooler months, but 5-10 degrees higher during mid-summer.
Noted for its reef-building corals, this tidy bay is bound by Cabo Pulmo to the north and Corral de Los Frailes to the south. Coarse white-sand beaches ring the bay, most of them readily accessible from the parallel Coastal Road. Baja California pearling once reached its southernmost point here.
