A superyacht charter in Mexico delivers a magnitude of experiences, whether you head for the Sea of Cortez, the Yucatan Peninsula – or beyond.
Described by Jacques Cousteau as the “aquarium of the world”, this charter destination is a marine paradise. The sheltered gulf is home to hundreds of rare species including Pacific manta rays and enormous whale sharks. Slip into the warm turquoise waters and swim or snorkel beside these gentle giants for an incredible underwater adventure.
The Sea of Cortez offers the ultimate whale-watching experience. Friendly and curious, the blue, grey and humpback whales of the Sea of Cortez love to interact with visitors. Watch humpback whales breach in front of your yacht sending waves of water over the hull. Take the tender out and get up close and personal with grey whales as they swim with their calves. A truly magical encounter, this is one trip you’ll forget.
Take in tiny fishing villages along the coast for a slice of timeless Mexican culture. Eat catch of the day in beachside restaurants or buy the fresh fish for the onboard chef to barbecue for dinner. A unique chance to visit the most scenic and unspoilt villages in Latin America, this is island life at its most authentic.
Your Mexico yacht charter begins at the Paradise Village Marina, where you'll set sail to Banderas Bay. Cruise the clear blue waters and drop anchor for the afternoon adjacent to Los Archos which teams with large varieties of sea life below and an array of scenic flora and fauna on land. These three small islets each contain a natural rock arch from which they earned their name.
Wake up and enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the northern corner of Banderas Bay. Then head to Marietas Islands, home to one of the most unique and beautiful beaches in the world. Known as ‘Hidden Beach’, this beach was formed by the collapse of the volcanic rock that makes up the island. On days with perfect sea conditions, you can swim through a cave that provides the only access to the stunning beach. Venture south along the scenic coast of Jalisco into a small remote anchorage of clear water and coral heads called Ipala.
Set sail early heading south towards Bahia de Chamela arriving around midday. Spend the afternoon exploring three small scenic islands that encompass the anchorage.
After a relaxing morning, cruise to the resort town of Tenacatita. Here there is a buzzing restaurant and nightlife scene and the opportunity to play golf overlooking the Pacific.
Barra de Navidad
We anchor to the north of the Bahia de Navidad. Take in the blissful white sandy beaches and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters amongst the local marine life.
Barra de Navidad
Cruise across the bay to the Marina de Barra Navidad. Take in the cobblestone streets and Latin architecture in the scenic sleepy town and for adrenaline junkies, enjoy water skiing in the afternoon on the mudflats. After tucking into a dinner of fresh seafood, take a walk in the warm breeze along the shoreline by night.
Leaving Bahia Barra, you head out of the Bay setting a course to Manzanillo. You’ll get to see La Hadas Marina, made famous as the money set of ‘10’ where Bo Derek ran down the beach in this Mexican port.
Spend the morning pursuing the towns and beaches of Manzanillo before ending your luxury yacht in Mexico at midday.
