  • Cabo Pulmo: The only hard coral reef in North America.

    Cabo Pulmo Park is located just 60 miles north of Baja’s tourism epicenter, 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 three living reefs (the only hard coral reef) in North America.

    For many years, this precious place went unprotected. But through the tenacious efforts of the Cabo Pulmo community, in 1995, the waters offshore from Cabo Pulmo were 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 visitors that are simply unaware or uneducated. Additionally, in a region where the locals live on the seafood they catch by hand, enforcing a ban on fishing presents a challenge. However, both Mexican and American residents are committed to protecting the marine environment and promoting sustainable fishing practices. And so it is the intention of this website to support the local community by involving and educating the public in hopes of preserving the Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park.


    Stay where the action is in the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament 2012

    Started in 1981 by Bob Bisbee, the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament has grown from six teams with a purse of $10,000 to more than 150 teams with millions of dollars on the line. In 2006 the Black & Blue had its biggest overall cash payout of $4,165,960. This was, and remains, the largest payout in sportfishing history.

    In 2000 Bisbee’s expanded to the east side of the Baja California Sur peninsula with the East Cape Offshore Tournament in Buenavista. In addition to marlin, this tournament included Dorado and tuna and became so popular that a third event with the same format was started in 2002–the Los Cabos Offshore Tournament.

    The final tournament in the series, Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Tournament, is hard to describe if you’ve never been there. It’s five days of organized chaos full of hard-core excitement. With the beautiful and lively city of Cabo San Lucas as the backdrop, thousands of people crowd the marina walkways to shop, party and watch huge fish being weighed in at the scales in front of the world-famous Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza. The Black & Blue is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never forget, whether you take home memories or millions.

    Wyndham Los Cabos it’s your best option to stay in the middle of all action happening in the Marina.
