The Sea of Cortez
When we made our first plans for travelling in Mexico we looked at the Sea of Cortez and wondered if it was a place we wanted to visit and to be honest it did not grab us. The pictures showed barren and arid landscapes, a far cry from the lush landscapes of the Pacific North West. There were few towns and people talked of hurricanes, strong local winds and debilitating heat that immobilizes you and destroys your boat. Sailing was reported to be poor and the prospect of motoring everywhere was not appealing. So when we rounded Cape Cabo on our way south we only traveled a few miles before we decided to head across to the mainland with the promise of lush tropical palm lines beaches, interesting towns and better services.
