Cabo Pulmo recommendations

Hoping to plan dive trip to Cabo Pulmo somewhere in June to early August timeframe. Any recommendations re: preferred dates, (things to potentially see), accomodations, dive operators, rental cars would be much appreciated. Gracias, John

Mood: Sunny with chance of whales

In June 2014 I stayed in a small house managed by Marly Ianson. You can reach her here:

She manages houses that are rented in summer when owners (snow birds) are north. I enjoyed Casa de Chuparosa, small 1 bedroom. They have larger places as well.

They are a short walk to the local dive shop, that had a good restaurant and all the options for diving the reef when I was there.

(I didn't dive- went out to snorkel only.)

Have fun!

All I'd say is make sure the AC is in good working condition. It will be HOT ... even at night.

In that pre-Google Earth and social media epoch, The Code was adhered to. It was based on a simple verity: if a locale had been transformational for you, and you had put the hard yards in to get there and to learn it, to know it, why in god�s name would you broadcast the news, thus ruining the future experience not only for yourself, but for future adventurers?

The generators in Cabo Pulmo normally only run from like 8am to 10pm even during the summer, so by 11pm you are sweating for the rest of the night.
