What are the directions to Cabo Pulmo?
There are two ways to get to Cabo Pulmo. From the airport (SJD) we recommend that you follow Highway 1 North, that way you will only encounter about 6 miles of dirt road. From Los Cabos Airport (SJD) travel North on Highway 1 past Caduano, Mira Flores, and Santiago turnoffs. Once you approach a small village called Las Cuevas you will find a right turn to La Ribera / Cabo Pulmo (if you cross a long bridge you went too far). Follow the road to La Ribera and turn right just prior to entering La Ribera. You will see the Cabo Pulmo turnoff. Follow the Cabo Pulmo road south until the pavement ends. Continue another 6 miles on the dirt road until you reach the village of Cabo Pulmo. Prior to Cabo Pulmo you will see some signs promoting Cabo Pulmo information, continue past this village, Cabo Pulmo is the next bay. You will know you are in Cabo Pulmo when you see Tito's restaurant, El Caballero restaurant, and the Cabo Pulmo Dive Center which is a two-story blue building.
Do we need a four-wheel drive to get to Cabo Pulmo?
No. Occasionally, following torrential rains and hurricanes the roads can get washed out and a truck or four-wheel drive would be helpful. This typically happens during the months of August and September, but can happen as early as July or as late as October.
