From the airport head north to La Paz. Follow the 'Cabo Riveria' signs. Shortly after the 91KM marker be prepared to make a right turn before the long bridge over an arroyo. Follow the road to La Ribera and right before entering La Ribera there is a Y ~ take a right and follow that road to the dirt road and then on into Cabo Pulmo. It is about a 1hr 30min from the airport. Beware of the cows in the road especially at night.
Once you enter Cabo Pulmo, you will go past Tito's on the right, El Caballero on the left and on the right a long yellow wall. Turn right after the wall, thru the blue gates and over the cattle guard. Three more roads up on the left side you will come to Via Mariposa. Left to the end and left again ~ 24 Via Mariposa
