We’re not heading to Mexico until November, but after getting these cruising guides this weekend, it feels like it’s sooooo soon! We are so excited! Our idea is to leave from San Diego after November 1st. We’ll slowly hop down the coast of Baja, taking about a month or longer. Once we round Cabo, we’ll shoot over to the mainland. After a few months there, we’ll head up into the Sea of Cortez for hurricane season (summer). From there, we’ll probably head down towards Panama. Now, these are all ideas. As most cruisers know, sailing route plans change all the time.
