Do we need to bring our own food?
There are several restaurants in Cabo Pulmo, but if you wish to cook for yourself, each house has a well equipped kitchen with all of the supplies needed to cook. Each house has a mid- sized propane refrigerator that will keep your food cool. If you like cold drinks bring ice and maybe a good cooler for the beer. The propane refrigerators are not like your electric one at home! Otherwise, you can purchase beer and sodas at the local restaurants.
Are there restaurants in Cabo Pulmo?
Yes, there are four restaurants in Cabo Pulmo. The new restaurant is called “The Coral Reef” it has great food and a great chef upstairs from the reception/dive center. Tito's serves excellent seafood but has inconsistent operating hours. El Caballero serves good Mexican food and has very consistent operating hours, usually opening around 8 AM and closing at 10 PM. Nancy's restaurant is pricey but serves more gourmet type meals. La Palapa is a beach front taco stand that serves tacos and beer. All of the restaurants serve beer and a few serve alcoholic beverages.
Is there electricity in Cabo Pulmo?
Yes, each house is equipped with a solar system that charges its batteries. You must be very conscientious of your electrical usage especially on cloudy days. Once the batteries are emptied there is no way to recharge them except waiting for the solar power to charge the batteries the next day. So be careful in the day that there is no power turned on. Do not bringing any electrical appliances with you. However, some customers have large battery chargers for their underwater photo equipment, we like to ask them to charge them in the dive center where we have more power.
Is the water safe to drink?
The water supply for all of Los Cabos is spring fed ground water. The water here is very pure, but be careful. The pipes used for distribution of the water supply and other factors can lead to contamination. The well servicing this small community in Cabo Pulmo supplies reliably good, sweet water, piped underground to each house. A lot of people drink it right from the tap. Although many people drink the water directly from the tap, it is not recommended. Anywhere in the world a change in drinking water can cause stomach distress. We recommend that you drink only bottled or purified water. It is sold here at the Coral Reef restaurant bar upstairs. Or you can get a whole 5 gallon bottle at the caballero restaurant.
Are there telephones in the rental houses?
No. This is why you are coming to Cabo Pulmo. To get away from that phone! We do have a Radio-telephone available for $5 dollars per call and 1 dollar a minute for long distance. Email is not available.
Are there televisions, VCRs, or stereos in the houses?
No. You are forced to communicate with your companion. Yikes!
Is there air-conditioning in the houses?
Yes. We do have A/C in 3 units only for the hottest months of the year. Normally you will be fine with just the fans. Fans are included in each rental house. In cases of extreme heat we have places in Cabo Pulmo with air-conditioning and cooler areas.
How far from the beach are your rentals?
It just depends on what house you are staying at. We have beach front where you walk out of your room and be on miles of sandy beaches. Ocean view is having a view of the ocean from your room, not beach front. Walking distance to the beach is always 2 minutes or less. If you need more privacy and open space, we will put you farther from the water.
