Take the Plunge in Cabo Pulmo As one of only three coral reefs in North America, diving or snorkeling in Cabo Pulmo National Park is an incredible experience. Dive into the water and discover an underwater world teeming with roughly 6,000 aquatic species including sea lions, Mobulas, turtles and humpback whales, depending on the time of year you visit. Both novice and expert divers as well as people who prefer snorkeling will be captivated by what Jacques Cousteau once called, “the aquarium of the world.”
Discover Adventure Meets Luxury with “Blamping” Blamping is the perfect combination between rugged mountain biking or hiking and luxury glamping amenities in the Baja desert.

Glamping accommodations offer comfortable amenities and delicious meals crafted to refill you after a high-energy activity.
