Mexico- West Coast Yacht Charter Guide

The West Coast of Mexico is the ideal destination for charterers seeking a colorful, idyllic playground.

From the famous and vibrant scene of Cabo San Lucas to the bustling and simultaneously secluded city of La Paz, a luxury yacht charter to Mexico’s West Coast is filled with adventure, culture and mouthwatering cultural delights. The cumulation of civilizations found in Mexico comprises Spanish and Indian influence with ancient native Aztec and Mayan heritage, creating a unique culture rich with history.

The magic of West Mexico boasts fascinating coastlines filled with white sand beaches, lush, green hills and rumbling waterfalls. Charterers will fall in love with the magical marine life and delicious gastronomy of the Pacific Coast of Mexico. You can munch on authentic beachside tacos or enjoy a sit-down at a fabulous five-star restaurant. The Sea of Cortez is brimming with marine life and makes a truly beautiful cruising destination.

Mexico’s West Coast is a beautiful combination of volcanic coastlines and desert scapes, with plenty of underwater action to be explored. You will begin your journey in La Paz, a charming city with plenty of sightseeing opportunities. On the way to your yacht, stop and stroll through the creative town of Todos Santos, viewing local art and catching a quick lunch of delicious local cuisine. After an afternoon of strolling the streets, you can head to the closest island, Isla Espiritu Santo. This UNESCO World Heritage Site showcases a stunning contrast between the sea and the desert, with volcanic rock formations, untouched beaches and impressive flora and fauna. To the north, you can experience incredible snorkeling in Punta Prieta, while those who prefer land can hike the trail from the beach to Playa Bonanza on the east side. Head to Isla Partida, a UNESCO-protected biosphere, to snorkel the azure waters or venture inland to explore the cactus forests and mangrove swamps.

Offshore Isla San Francisco, you can find the famous El Bajo Sea Mounts, famous dive sites where you can expect to see giant manta rays, turtles, hammerhead sharks and even humpback whales. You can soak up the totally relaxed atmosphere or enjoy your yacht’s water toys for the day, weaving in and out of the turquoise blue waters. Isla San Francisco is home to some of the most beautiful anchorages in the world, boasting classic Baja scenery with towering cliffs and crystal-clear water. This is an excellent location to hike up the shore to a cliff to take in the unbeatable views, or simply relax and soak up the sun. The nearby island of Isla Coyote welcomes you to mingle with the local fisherman. After a relaxed breakfast on the deck of your charter yacht, take a kayak through the La Amortajada lagoon for some peace and quiet away from all of the action. Afterward, head to Los Islotes and don your snorkeling gear to swim amongst the sea lions.

Endless fiestas can be expected when chartering to Mexico’s West Coast. The sizzling nightlife and waterfront restaurants invite you to experience a night on the town and see what this passionate country offers. Head to the buzzing city of Cabo San Lucas and enjoy a beautiful dinner at Neptune Seafood, where Chef Remby Rubio will showcase classic techniques to prepare fresh seafood from the Baja shores in this swanky venue located right above Medano Beach.
