Akeeva - San Diego to Cabo

Arriving in Mexico was very different than arriving in Canada or the United States. We chose to clear into Mexico in Ensenada, the northernmost port of call. Ensenada is about 60nm from San Diego, and we arrived at Marina Coral late in the afternoon. A health inspector came to the boat, took our temperatures, checked our vaccination card, and then allowed us to check in with the marina office.

At the marina office, we paid for a couple of nights (the most expensive moorage we’ve ever had at $3.75 per foot) and we asked about clearing customs. Since it was after 2:00 p.m., the government offices were closed. In the US or Canada, we’d be stuck on the boat until the agents came and checked us in. In Mexico, they gave us a coupon for free welcome drinks, invited us to explore town, and pointed us in the direction of a supermarket to do our grocery shopping before any of the entry formalities were complete.
