The Baja California peninsula is known for its pristine beaches and its small, peaceful and prosperous communities. In recent years, these characteristics have attracted investors who are betting big on mass and residential tourism.
This is worrisome because Cabo Pulmo is located on the desert and water available for large settlements is scarce. Furthermore, reef ecosystems are fragile and not likely to withstand changes to natural conditions.
Despite this, construction projects such as marinas, hotels, residential areas, and golf courses, amongst others have been approved in the vicinity of Cabo Pulmo National Park. We face a big challenge generating economic alternatives that do not compromise the well-being of our local communities and the conservation of our natural heritage.
