Cabo Pulmo Under Threat Again

Date Published:

The world famous National Marine Park at Cabo Pulmo may again be under threat from developers. The Cabo Cortes project, which was canceled in 2012 by then President of Mexico Felipe Calderon, has now been reactivated, according to Armando Sanchez, Pres Sos BCS. This follows an order given by the Colegiado to SEMARNAT which requires a resolution of the issue, one way or another.

A spokesperson for SEMARNAT BCS Management said: “The  environmental impact and risk has meant that we issued a document denying the permit to proceed as well as expressing our dissatisfaction with the resolution.” The Cabo Cortes project includes more than 3 thousand hotel rooms, more than 7000 homes, golf courses and a marina. 

In May, SEMARNAT announced the rejection of the Golden Cape project because of its negative environmental impact. This would have been built near the Marine National Park which has caused major concern from environmentalists who claim that it could bring serious damage to the rich ecosystem and the unique marine life which includes the largest coral reef in the Eastern Pacific.

Armando Sanchez Pres. Sos BCS, said, “This project is a major threat to the marine park of Cabo Pulmo. What they are intending is growing out of control “

It is always the case: people find a wild and beautiful place and decide to develop it so others can enjoy the wildness…thereby destroying what made the place unique and beautiful in the first place. When you consider just how much development is going in in Los Cabos and how much land remains to be developed, why can’t there still be room for Cabo Pulmo to remain as it is?
