  • Perfect for nothing, snorkel or just relax. It is leaving San José de el Cabo and it is preferable to reach it by car since it separated from the main road, parking is being repaired but it is broad, there are showers, palapas, lifeguards and bathrooms.

  • It is close to San Jose, which is a bonus. Kind of a far walk from the bus stop. We drove. Get there early, the lot will fill up. Good snorkeling. Wonderful time with many local families. Such fun.  more »
