  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Cabo Pulmo is a small town of 100 people that is in front of the biggest Coral Reef of the Gulf of California. The weather can be really hot in summer and warm but windy in winter. There are different activities to do in the area such as hiking, snorkelling, diving, camping, biking, horse back riding and bird watching among others. The community is very open and always willing to exchange knowledge and experiences. We are off the grid so this means no public services, but we do have the way to cover the basic needs.

La comunidad es muy abierta y siempre dispuesta a intercambiar conocimientos y experiencias. Estamos fuera de la red lo que significa que no hay servicios públicos, pero sí tenemos la manera de cubrir las necesidades básicas.
