Sounds like a great trip. Maybe we'll see you down there but we're not planning on leaving until December or so. Last year, we left in February and made it as far south as Manzanillo before we turned around and sailed as far north in the Sea of Cortez
as Puerto Escondido. We left Cabo San Lucas on May 30th and we took 13 days to 'bash' back to San Diego. Our insurance
required us to be north of Ensenada by the 15th of June.
The trip for us was much too rushed. The longest we stayed in any port was 4 days and there were many ports
in which we would have liked to have stayed longer and some we wanted to visit that we sailed by altogether. Certainly the time you have allowed is adequate to cover your itinerary but you, too, may find it not enough time to cover everything. For example, this year we're not even planning to go to mainland Mexico
- we're just going to stay in the Sea.
You didn't mention if this is the first extended cruise
you've taken with your family
. We did two extended cruises with our children
and we still cherish those memories as they act as a bond for us, even though it was a long time ago.
Fair winds and calm seas.
