Bahia De Maruata 2015

Currently anchored in Santiago which is by Manzanillo ,  Mexico April 14 2015

Remember our Garmin GHC 10 class A under-deck autopilot broke again so we are stopping at these anchorages each night to get some rest from hand-steering on the way north from Zihuatanejo. It is also Easter week(s) - Semana Santosso  - it's party on for the locals.

These three anchorages are available for stopping if you do not want to spend two days and nights at sea. That is a passage from Zihuatanejo to Manzanillo . And if you can keep 4-5 knots. We did the two overnights on the way South but in Acapulco  our autopilot broke.

Bahia De Maruata  Mexico -  end of March 2015
Punta Cabeza Negra  

We did stop at all three and here is what we found on the way North in a heavy S - SW swell.
Any more info please see a guide book and Charlies Charts.
The next anchorage going North is Punta Cabeza Negra.

Where s\v Elegant'sea anchored.

Debbie doing some hand steering.
And there is always a wale show :)
Lots of choppy seas getting into this anchorage!

Not a comfortable sea state the last couple hours.
Anchored at last.
Pretty spot with the ocean coming in-between the small islands.

Big sewll but not choppy and the land blocked most of the wind.

This house is on the land just before the islands, by the dinghy landing.

Where the dinghy landing is but the surf is too big!
The dinghy landing is to the left between the small rock and the land.

This is all camp ground along the beach. There are a lot of covered areas, popalas that people can put there tents and hammocks under etc. We are not sure what electricity (generator) but there were lights.

There was also music playing through some kind of pa system till about 4 am. Some kind of rap, techno, and oldies in English and Spanish??? No peace!

On our way out of  Bahia De Maruata.
Back in there is where s\v Elegant'sea was anchored.

Moving out and North.

Once we got past the major point (this was not it) the seas got kinder for a lot of or passage to Punta Cabeza Negra, till we go close to the point we need to round to anchor then they got a bit nasty again.
