[aargh, did not notice date of OP]
, or Roatan? I'd like to take my Gulfstar
50 from Galveston to the destination
and leave her there for a while..../QUOTE]
For leaving a boat during hurricane
season, I would go with Rio Dulce, Guatemala
. Many cruiser do. More below:
has a few options: Cucumber Beach near Belize City. Roberts Grove in Placencia. I've got 75' of unoccupied dock
space on Placencia Caye. Roberts Grove and Placencia Caye would be good for most conditions, both protected from all directions. Cucumber Beach's entrance faces East, and its a straight shot in, so if the wind
howls from there...not good.
Many boats in Belize head
for the Rio Dulce for hurricane
season or just to run from individual storms. No worries about hurricanes there (its surrounded by mountains). Lots of small marinas
to choose from, with boat keeping services, and two good boat yards. One day run back to Belizean waters. And an over night run to the Bay Islands.
Roatan has a few marinas
: Barefoot Caye (quite nice), Fantasy Island, Parrot Tree, and a couple of others. Lagoon
Marina (in La Ceiba) is still closed to my knowledge.
