S/V Hello World's Travel Log

Bay of the Dead

A perfect anchorage as defined by Hello World:
1) good protection from the prevailing winds and solid holding
2) wifi available on the boat
3) remote, yet cold beer and nachos available at the palapa bar on the beach

We could seriously stay in Bahia de los Muertos for weeks on end. So we did. We hung out for 2 weeks enjoying 35 foot visibility, amazingly warm water, great snorkeling, dolphins to swim with and indulging ourselves on the world's best nachos. Even with 2 boats going up on the rocks, no Cinco de Mayo celebrations and our head breaking AGAIN, our spirits weren't dampened in this amazing place (well, maybe for a minute, but we bounced back). It turns out that the US celebrates Cinco de Mayo more than Mexico (they only celebrate it in one state here) - but as Americans, we suffered through another round of nachos and margaritas to extend the celebration. As for boats going up on the rocks, a future post will have details. And the head? Well, let's just say we're never buying a Jabsco head again.
