South of Ziha it gets kind of hit and miss. Waltuco (that's the pronunciation, the spanish word begins with a H) is the last good harbor in Mexico
so I checked out in Z-town. Monitor

cruisier net! When you get 3 or 4 days of light off-shore wind
, crank up the engine
sail less than a mile off the beach acrossed the Gulf of T-pecker. Don't stop at Salina Cruz or Port of Madera.( the two armpits of Mexico's west coast) El Salvador was my next stop, and I was met at the month of a river by a guide from Berilis Marina. I followed him back and forth thru the three sets of ground swells and 7 miles up a river. Get the info from fellow cruisiers.
The Gulf of T-pec can be a true bitch as off shore winds from the Gulf of Mexico
at Salina Cruz reach gale force an average of 135 days a year and the large long period Pacific swells going in the NE direction make for dangerous conditions when more that five miles off shore.
Sail safe! John
please excuse the poor spanish spelling.
