Charts for Mexico?
Hi All,

Where do I download usable charts for Mexico? West coast/Baja, Sea of Cortez up to La Paz and also over to Punta Mita area if possible.

NOAA doesn't appear to have charts available for South of Endensada. Perhaps I'm missing something?

I'm looking for Raster charts comptabible with OpenCPN.

I have never found "free" charts of Mexico, like the US NOAA ENC/RNC charts.

Also, what I've done is use GE2KAP or VentureFarther to make satellite charts for the popular cruising locations. Many of the Mexico charts are off by several miles (e.g., Isla Isabela). Google Earth overlays help identify land locations. Be careful navigating with satellite charts - they don't have depth or aids to navigation.

Thanks Don. I guess'll stick with the paper charts I used the last time around. :smile:

You have as well the official charts in S-63 format - not free of charge.
