Eating Out In Cabo Pulmo

There are six restaurants in Cabo Pulmo offering a variety of fare at a variety of prices.  We suggest you take plenty of cash with you as the only restaurant that takes credit cards in Cabo Pulmo is the Coral Reef Restaurant. The remaining restaurants are cash only. It’s a common misunderstanding that eating out in Mexico is dirt cheap. While one can find inexpensive places to eat in the city, or at road-side food carts, Cabo Pulmo is in a rural village and all supplies must be driven out from the city, an hour-and-a-half to two-hour drive each way, so the cost of these supply trips must be factored into restaurant pricing.  Most restaurant pricing starts a mid-range and goes up from there depending upon restaurant and menu item. Each restaurant is usually closed one-day-per-week to make supply trips to the city, so if one restaurant is not open, several of the others will be. During summer months, the restaurants frequently have additional closed days as business is slower than in the popular winter months, but there’s always one or more restaurants open for business.
