The East Cape region of Baja California Sur is an area of pristine
coastline that is located on the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) and
covers approximately 50 miles of natural landscape. The area begins on
the coastline just east of La
Paz and extends south to the city of San Jose del Cabo
Anglers come to these abundant waters to fish while divers enjoy the
clear waters that team with over 800 species of fish. The waters off
the East Cape region are justifiably famous in the sports-fishing
world. The variety of species coupled with their amazing numbers make
this area a true dream for the fisherman. Yellowtail, tuna, marlin,
dorado, roosterfish and pompano are just a few examples of the fish
that can be found in East Cape waters.
Off the coast of Cabo Pulmo is the Pulmo Reef National Marine Reserve
which offers a splendid living coral reef for diving explorations. In
fact, this marine park offers the only living reef system in western
North America and was designated a national marine park in 1993. Some
species of fish within this reserve are found nowhere else in the
world. In addition to the variety of rare and beautiful fish, sea
turtles, giant mantas and hammerheads can also be seen here. The best
time to dive and snorkel in these waters is from March through October
when visibility is at its optimum.
Buena Vista, another town found in the East Cape region, is where many
fishing and diving excursion trips are launched. Los Barriles is the
largest city in the area and windsurfing is very popular here. There is
a wind tunnel that travels through the mountains nearby which creates a
strong air current over the ocean. From November through April,
windsurfers regularly travel 20 miles offshore with these winds and
have the ride of their life.
Although the East Cape region of Baja California Sur is only an hour's
, it offers the traveler an altogether different experience. The area
is rugged and the environment retains much of its natural landscape
with minimal development. Miles upon miles of deserted beaches with
white sandy beaches and clear blue waters greet the visitor. Whale
watching is a favorite pastime in this region and kayakers also enjoy
these waters as the Sea of Cortez offers fine conditions for this sport.
You will find that the East Cape Region has a variety of accommodations
to choose from, ranging from camping on the beach to staying at a
Casa Sirena and Casa Tortuga
