TAXI OR RENTAL CAR AT THE LOS CABOS AIRPORT
Most of our guests come to Cabo Pulmo immediately upon arriving into Los Cabos Airport. About half of our guests come by rental car and half come by taxi or private car.
If you elect to come by taxi, we can help set this up in advance. The cost in 2022 has been approximately $175 one-way for a van that holds 5-6 passengers, plus tip. The taxi driver meets you outside of the arrivals hall. If you arrange it beforehand, the taxi driver will take you grocery shopping for a fee. (See more on grocery shopping below.)
If you rent a car, there are many car rental options. We recommend you shop around, and rates can vary between providers. (One company we like is BBB Car Rentals, but others do an excellent job as well.) Review the exterior of the vehicle before driving it off the lot, including a confirmation that the spare tire is in its place.
DRIVING TO CABO PULMO from LOS CABOS AIRPORT
The exit to Cabo Pulmo is just beyond the village of Las Cuevas. You cannot miss it, as there is a prominent sign calling out the exit. (If you are concerned about missing it, the highway has mile markers—kilometer markers actually—and the exit is at kilometer marker 92.5.)
You will now be heading in an easterly direction and will pass through the village of Santa Cruz enroute to the coastal town of LA RIBERA. La Ribera has seen a substantial increase in development in the past several years. A Four Seasons hotel has opened just to the north of town, and three more high-end hotels, plus a marina, are all under construction.
Upon entering La Ribera, guide right at the prominent fork in the road just beyond the Oxxo, which is the local convenience store. (After taking the right, perhaps take note of the Urgent Care Facility to the left, in case you should later need it.) There are two small grocery markets in La Ribera where one can purchase all of the basics, such as eggs, cheese, tortillas, rice, beans and beverages. The most convenient is El Rey, which you will find about 200 yards beyond the fork in the road, on the right, and painted in bright yellow, blue and white.
The drive from La Ribera to Cabo Pulmo takes about 30 minutes. The distance is 27 kilometers. The final 10 kilometers are unpaved, so proceed slowly to minimize any bouncing. You will pass through the coastal enclave of Las Barracas prior to reaching Cabo Pulmo.
Once you enter Cabo Pulmo, look for Pepe’s Restaurant to the right and the Visitor Center to the left. Slow down here, as you need to take the sharp left onto the private road immediately past the Visitor Center (and prior to the La Caballero Restaurant). Our signs will soon be installed. In the meantime, follow the signs to BAJA PARADISE, the neighbor to our right. Once at their gate, look to your immediate left and see our gate.
You have arrived! Enter the gate and park to your right. The caretaker’s office is just to the left. Welcome to Baja Serenity. Paty will be looking forward to greeting you.
