Cabo Pulmo is located in Los Cabos, in the southern portion of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico. Just off its coast is the largest coral reef in the Gulf of California and one of the oldest in the Eastern Pacific.


You can get to Cabo Pulmo from San Jose (93 miles approx) or La Paz (124 km approx) by taking Highway # 1 and turning at Las Cuevas village towards La Ribera and taking a 12-mile dirt road.


Cabo Pulmo is a small community of about 120 residents, many of whom are devoted to their family owned tourism businesses: restaurants, bungalow rentals, cottages, and shops that provide diving, kayaking, bike rentals and horse riding services.


Cabo Pulmo offers hiking trails, such as Puurum trail, which in the ancient Pericú language means mountainous place. This trail was built by people from the community to highlight the historical and cultural value of the land. For more information click HERE
