Bahia Los Frailes

Shindig is at anchor in a beautiful bay just 18 miles East of Puerto Del Cabo. Bahia Los Frailes is a staging spot for northbound boats and like us, boats that are planning to sail to Mazatlan. From here we will cross the Sea of Cortez to the East. It is a 170 mile trip and should take us 24 to 30 hours

The water temperature here is about 80 and the visibility is about 30 feet.
From our anchor spot we can swim over to the reef and snorkel.

I feel a little sad leaving Baja. We won't be back for many months.

    1. Marla,
      Thanks for the message. We had a great time meeting you, too on the HaHa! We just spent two days with Scot Free in Los Frailes playing in the water. Fun. Keep in touch! Nancy and Rob

  2. Enjoy Mazatlan! One of our favorite cities. If you can stay at the El Cid Hotel/marina. It is better than Marina Mazatlan.
