We were staying in Puerto Los Cabos and made a day trip to Cabo Pulmo. We had intended to snorkel off the shore, but decided on a whim to join up with Eco Adventures for a snorkeling tour by boat. What an amazing place! The water clarity was unbelievably good, and the water was the most beautiful blue. The fish were incredible - HUGE schools of fish. We also snorkeled near a sea lion colony, and then the absolute most incredible part was a mother and baby humpback whale surfacing near our boat. The water was so clear that we could see the mother whale hanging out under the boat while the baby whale swam under our boat many times, surfacing just meters away.
Now the tricky part - getting there. We drove up to Cabo Pulmo from Puerto Los Cabos. We made the mistake of taking the coastal road (Camino Cabo Este) the whole way up as it was the recommended route from Google Maps. Be warned - Camino Cabo Este is dirt. Really really really rutted dirt. After 2 1/2 hours to go 36 miles (UGH!), we arrived. We went home by heading north out of Cabo Pulmo on Camino Cabo Este to Highway 1 - only 7 miles of dirt that wasn't nearly as rutted. Although that route is a lot longer (64 miles), we covered it in 1.5 hours.
