Cabo Pulmo Featured In National Geographic

Date Published:

Photo by Jeff Hester of National Geographic 

If you have never been to Cabo Pulmo, this stunning photograph by National Geographic photographer Jeff Hester should give you all the reason you need.

 “I believe this is what our oceans should look like”said Hester and who could argue with him on that point. “For this particular image, I wanted to show some scale ... so I had my wife, seen in the foreground, swim ahead of me.”

Cabo Pulmo National Park is located just 60 miles north of Los Cabos. 

This jewel of the East Cape region of Baja California Sur stretches five miles from the northernmost tip, Pulmo Point, to the southernmost tip, Los Frailes. Surrounded by undeveloped desert and a stunning mountain range, the pristine beaches of Cabo Pulmo Park give way to a shallow bay that cradles one of the three living reefs (and the only hard coral reef) in all of North America.

For many years, this precious place was unprotected, but through the tenacious efforts of the Cabo Pulmo community, in 1995 it was finally designated a National Marine Park by the Mexican government. Over the past 10 years, the park has endured pressures from commercial fishing and abuse from irresponsible visitors. Additionally, in a region where the locals live on the seafood they catch by hand, enforcing a ban on fishing presents a real challenge. 

However, both Mexican and American residents are committed to protecting the marine environment and promoting sustainable fishing practices. 

The reef, estimated to be 20,000 years old, is the northernmost coral reef in the eastern Pacific. The reef has a number of fingers of hard coral occurring in progressively deeper water offshore.
