I assume we're talking about the same Puerto Escondido (about 19 17 N 69 19.7 W). I didn't see the cave (too worried about anchoring
?). We tried anchoring
along the beach on the east side with the rock cliffs to our east. It seemed like it was rocky bottom. I have a heavy Bruce anchor
and it wouldn't hold. One of the fishermen stopped by and said that we should be careful, boats had wrecked anchoring in that area. Eventually I changed anchors and used my Brazilian Raya and it grabbed right away. As my notes say...the bay is pretty deep everywhere until you get pretty close to the beach. Maybe about 25 to 30 ft?? Anyway, a couple of fishermen stopped by to say Hi and the beach sure did look pretty. We didn't put the dinghy
in because we behind schedule anyway.
