The Story Of Cabo Pulmo

Cabo Pulmo Park is just 60 miles north of Baja’s tourism epicenter, Los Cabos. This jewel of the East Cape region of Baja California Sur stretches five miles from the northernmost tip, Pulmo Point to the southernmost tip, Los Frailes. Surrounded by undeveloped desert and a stunning mountain range, the pristine beaches of Cabo Pulmo Park give way to a shallow bay that cradles one of three living reefs (the only hard coral reef) in North America.

The small coastal community of Cabo Pulmo decided to stop fishing in 1995 to give their local, overfished seas a chance to bounce back.

This is their incredible story of recovery.
