Re: Catamaran Tour from mexico to Caribbean

Yes, welcome to the forum. I suspect you would have to charter a crewed yacht and the price could be pretty alarming. In addition, from Mexico it is a pretty long trip to any of the Windward/Leeward Islands. I suspect you would find it much cheaper to book a flight to an island of your choice and look for a crewed charter from there. In addition, you don't say when you are hoping to take this trip, but bear in mind that by mid July (and certainly August) you are getting well and truly into hurricane season.

Good luck on your upcoming adventure!

Brad

Re: Catamaran Tour from Mexico to Caribbean

I've never been to the east coast of Mexico, but I can make some generalizations that might be helpful...

  • Crewed sailboats for charter will likely be found in areas frequented by tourists.
  • The experience will most will likely be a day-sail, where you sail with a group of strangers, drink, maybe have a snack, listen to loud music, drink some more, and sail back to port with a sunburn.
  • Some outfits may offer overnight crewed charters for up to a week or more, although Mexico isn't known as a such a destination.
  • Touristy destinations on the east coast of Mexico include Cancun and Cozumel for sure. Veracruz might be a distant "maybe".
  • Google is your friend.

Good luck!
