Pepe From Cabo Pulmo

by David Simmonds 

It’s always good to hear Mexico news from old friends. Pepe Murrieta recently sent me the email below. I first got to know Pepe when a friend, Chris Hogan,  and  I had a non-profit organization called the Sea of Cortez International Preservation Foundation. At the time Pepe was “the guy” in Cabo Pulmo…it seems that everyone knew him and his love and care for the area that features the only coral reef in that part of Mexico (southern Baja). The non-profit raised some money and we drove a four-wheel drive, very used Suzuki Samurai 900 miles down the Baja peninsula to hand Pepe the keys.

So, if you have met Pepe, here is what he’s up to these days. And if not, and you are in the area on the East Cape of Baja, stop by and make a new friend. He knows as much about the Sea of Cortez as anyone I’ve ever known. And he’s just really a very fine guy.

  1. Hello Pepe. We had a fantastic time when Nico was just a baby, and Nancy was cooking great food. I tell everyone who will listen about Cabo Pulmo and Pepe’s Dive shop. I even have some of the underwater pictures enlarged and in my office. Our kids are now almost all adults (17, 18 and 21) and diving too.
