needs Baja California Sur now offers more for megayacht owners and guests to enjoy. Marina Puerto Escondido, a longtime, lower-key spot to tie up in the Mexican region, has more than 100 new slips, along with enhanced services, for far larger megayachts.
While the marina dates back to the 1980s, the current owners acquired it last year. They identified an opportunity to expand the footprint to attract additional cruisers from not just the United States, but around the world. Therefore, Marina Puerto Escondido has dockage for yachts up to 200 feet (about 61 meters). In fact, the management team says the first megayacht of that size has already booked a slip, for January. In addition, Marina Puerto Escondido has a new breakwater, to protect the basin from northerly winds. For owners’ and guests’ enjoyment, the management team has partnered with specially selected tour operators, whether on land, for diving, or even fishing. Around-the-clock security is on site, too.
Should emergency repair needs arise, Marina Puerto Escondido plans to deliver here as well. It has an underwater repair service, as well as bottom painting. Furthermore, while it’s suited for smaller craft, a 50-ton lift is additionally on the property, as is dry stowage.
The grand re-opening, which took place over the weekend, gave visitors the chance to learn about upcoming additional plans. Marina Puerto Escondido is adding luxury homes, in a gated waterfront community called Waicuri. Each residence includes private dockage, for yachts and megayachts to 100 feet (about 30.5 meters).
The Baja California Sur area surrounding Marina Puerto Escondido holds strong appeal. One of the photos above reveals the colorful Cerro Tabor Palmilla Peaks. They rise thousands of feet high, further safeguarding the water from strong winds. Add in rugged desert landscapes and a regional airport with regular major-airline service, and it’s just a matter of planning a trip.
