Wondering if anyone has any info on doing a round-trip visit to the Galapagos
departing from Central America
(Southern Costa Rica
, Northern Panama) and returning either to any Central American port or Ecuador/Peru, however if seems obvious enough that a return trip aimed towards Ecuador
would have me somewhat at odds with the prevailing winds and current
. In that sense, returning to Panama
or any point north from the Galapagos
seems easier, although Ecuador
have off-the-beaten track appeal. I'm more interested in advice on the return portion of the trip, but any experiences sailing from Costa/Panama to the Galapagos are appreciated. Motoring not a problem as I realize this would be a prevailing theme of this passage
I plan to do a 45 or 60 day visit to the islands via an Autografo, which is a whole other topic with plenty of good threads dealing with the subject, all of which have been helpful, along with the articles on Noonsite and the (free) Ecuador Cruisers Guide.
If anyone has done that route
, or has any tips or advice, it would be much appreciated. Likely to do this trip Mar-Apr-May range.
Jimmy Cornell provides some optimistic, but vague, advice here: Noonsite: Panama-Galapagos-Ecuador
