I’ve been heavily neglecting this thing over the past few months partly because of having to pull the plug on living in Mex and moving my life norte for the time being. Packed the car to the brim and spent a good couple weeks cruising the coast via Baja back to San Diego.
Having now explored about 90% of the Mexican Pacific coastline, I can readily confirm what many have known for decades: it is a ridiculously wave-rich region. The first part of the leg was Manzanillo up to Mazatlan. I was pretty familiar with the Jalisco coast so booked it up to Nayarit and Sinaloa to meet a late season SW
Seasoned gringo expats speak fondly of the points in Nayarit, south of San Blas, but they need a pretty specific swell to turn on. We looked around but ended up enjoying most of the swell around Mazatlan, which is a pretty cool town as far as mexican coastal “cities” go.
From Mazatlan it was time to cross over to Baja via an interesting cargo ferry. More on that to come…
