So Where Exactly Are We Going?
About two-thirds of the way down the Sea of Cortez, on Mexico’s famed Baja Peninsula, sit Loreto and Puerto Escondido. Backed by the stunning Sierra de la Giganta range to the west and a spread of islands and dazzling blue waters to the east, this area boasts spectacular sailing, beach exploration, historic communities, gorgeous remote anchorages, and world-class fishing. About 10 miles south of historic and charming Loreto, Mexico’s authentic “City of Magic,” lies Puerto Escondido (hidden port). This naturally enclosed basin has been used for centuries to shelter boats of all kinds, and, after many fits and starts since the 1980’s, now boasts a rapidly developing marina and residential project. It is an ideal base for exploring one of the richest, most starkly beautiful cruising areas on the planet, a place Jacques Cousteau once proclaimed “The Aquarium of The World.”
West Coast Multihulls’ location on the waterfront at Marina Puerto Escondido is home to a small fleet of luxury cruising catamarans, along with a full-service marina, boat yard, store, restaurant, etc. This is a magnificent sailing area, boasting 10 islands and dozens of unique anchorages to explore, along with nearby Loreto, chock full of history, dining, and shopping opportunities. This is a part of Mexico that invites you to slow down and soak it all in. Everywhere are the dramatic geology, intense colors and stark contrasts of desert meeting the sea. Fish, rays and whales during the day, coyotes on the beach at night. Puerto Escondido might be only 10 miles from the Loreto airport, but it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle north of the border.
