Marinas between Ensenda and Cabo

We're planning the Ensenda/Cabo leg of our cruise, and I was wondering:
1. Are there any marinas between Ensenda and Cabo?
2. If not any marinas, are they stops along the way where you can drop the hook, take the dingy into town, and find a place with reseasonable internet service?

Thanks.

Charlie's Charts of Mexico is a good book to describe the different places to stop on the Ensenada to Cabo leg. I imagine that the Baja Bash (the book) would also tell you good places to stop. I thinkt hat you can throw the anchor down aobut every 40 miles. Some places better than others. The big stops are Turtle Bay, Bahia Santa Maria. I don't know about internet service in Santa Marian but I understand that Turtle Bay does have service.

Actually the answer is no on marinias and yes on internet. Tutrle Bay is about 1/2 way from ensenada and Cabo. A great secure anchorage. The town has several internet cafes with DSL modems. They charge a couple of pesos for 30 min. Most of them are toward the middle of town near the PEMEX station. Having spent a week or two over the years storm bound in Turtle Bay, I find I kind of like the place.

When I sailed down Baja we stopped every night at a tolerable anchorage.2 or 3 days we got underway well before dawn.I think it was the run from Santa Maria Bay to Turtle Bay and from Mag. Bay to Cabo.

There is one leg from Mag Bay to Cabo wher you need to run 180 miles. There are just no anchorages there.
