Dive in Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park
Cabo Pulmo Park is located just 60 miles north of Los Cabos.
This jewel of the East Cape region of Baja California Sur stretches five miles from the northernmost tip, Pulmo Point to the southernmost tip, Los Frailes.
The pristine beaches of Cabo Pulmo Park give way to a shallow bay that cradles one of three living reefs (the only hard coral reef) in North America.
In 1995, the waters offshore from Cabo Pulmo were designated a National Marine Park by the Mexican government.
Take a journey of discovery as you dive into the heart of the Sea of Cortez to this marine sanctuary that is home to over 200 species of fish and sea life including big-eyed jacks, snappers, porkfish, large schooling fish, sea turtles and much more!
Come see the giant groupers and maybe even a bull shark or manta ray!
