My wife and I recently visited Los Cabos. We were interested in doing some snorkeling and had been told Cabo Pulmo was THE place. We made the 1.5 hour drive north from San Jose del Cabo. Drive was easy, nothing to worry about. All of the turn offs are well signed and easy to see. The last 10Km or 6 miles into Cabo Pulmo are on a dirt road. We did the drive the day after heavy rains and had no problems. The guides at CPBR had called our hotel to cancel our trip due to rough seas and poor visibility but we never got the message. Upon arrival my wife choose not to go out on the boat due to rough seas. I jumped in and we were surprised to find the visibility to be great away from the shore. We Snorkeled El Bajo where we saw large schools of Jacks and then moved to Playa La Serinita where we saw an incredible variety and large number of fish. The water was very warm. I was told that Sept/Oct is the best time to visit the area for warm water and the best visibility, unfortunatley it is also Hurricane season so you run the risk of weather shutting down your trip. The staff at CPBR were great and I look forward to coming back and diving with this group. Heads up that you are required to wear a life jacket in the Marine Park while snorkeling, CPBR has these as well as the wrist bands that show you paid your park entrance fee. Keep in mind Cabo Pulmo is RURAL Mexico. Not for everyone. Those that venture out will find a great group of people and an incredible place to dive/snorkel!!
