Best enormous schools of big fish dives I have ever been on. The staff were great. Dives were terrific. You dive here to see the abundance of sea life. It is well worth the trip!

Best snorkeling experience in the area. A good 2.5 hour drive from Cabo San Lucas. Although it rained we were still able to snorkel. It was like sticking your head into a tropical aquarium only its the real deal. Despite the weather I felt completely...More

Cabo Pulmo Sports Center is the one I used. They charged $40 a person and were very helpful and friendly. They have a tiki shack right at the beach front. They take USD and credit card.
