long beach is very citified and has a lot of shipping--or it did in 1990-1995. san diego
has easy sailing---
ensenada has no anchoring
allowed and marinas
along coastal mexico
is decent after you leave baja--it is not quite the vast wasteland rh bespeaks, however--there is turtle bay, magdalena bay, san ignacio, san quintin, if they have a deeper than 6 ft entry yet, and many other bahias--bahia asuncion is close to turtle--many bahias for temporary anchoring
as you sail south. along the mexican southwest coast are many beautiful and green bahias--good anchoring--research south west mexico--is tropics and reasonable if you do n0t use marinas
even cedros island has anchorages
is not a vast wasteland by any stretch of ones imagination.
even the desert areas have something for folks.
coastal tropical mexico is gorgeous and sports many anchorages
that are easy and semi protected.
there are mayan ruins in mexico to visit once you arrive and plant boat for a day or two--many many interesting things to see and do in mexico, once one leaves the gringo infested areas close to border, inclusive of the golfo de california
, aka sea of cortez
. omg, and there is even technology!!!! mexico is not a backward nation, as is commonly thunk. omg!! heck they even have 4g interwebs service
is large enough to support traffic and recreational use. funny
thing about that--but one best sail using depth
sounder--and it takes exactly 1 1/2 hours to get from chula vista marina, in south bay, to the entrance of sd bay--hardly a full days sailing. done that, many times.
