Cabo Pulmo, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Camping on the shores of a national marine parkAfter rumbling down a dirt road for an hour with only cacti and a rundown gas station as landmarks we found ourselves in the tiny town of Cabo Pulmo. We parked our truck and walked down towards the turquoise sea. What we emerged on was a campers paradise. A long deserted stretch of sand with a few thatched palapas for shade and a crystal clear warm sea to swim in. We quickly grabbed our gear and set up camp under one of the palapas. We were the only people for miles and since Cabo Pulmo is run only on solar, we had a beautiful starry night sky all to ourselves. The next morning was spent snorkeling the reef and lounging in a makeshift hammock.
