3) BURNING EFFIGY 
MUÑECOS DE AÑO VIEJO PANAMA

Munecos

It’s that time of the year again…

If
this is your first time visiting the  Coronado, Panama area, you
may start noticing effigies, or human-like figurines being displayed
alongside the Pan-American Highway between San Carlos and Bejuco.

These
large replicas have various names, including muñecos de año viejo (old
year dolls), muñecos judas (judas dolls), or simply muñecos (dolls). The
dolls are a  way to ring in the new year in the area. Muñecos are
typically made with a wood or metal frame, old clothes, and stuffed with
leaves and firecrackers. They are then thrown into a bonfire on the
strike of midnight on New Years’.

Mr Covid

The
best  burning of muñecos occurs in San Carlos, which is
approximately 10 minutes west of Coronado. Muñecos  symbolize
things that people do not want to carry with them into the next
year.   The Covid muñeco will be worth the sacrifices. 

Muñecos
is a tradition pretty specific to the interior of Panama, specifically
between Bejuco and San Carlos. Look for them alongside the highways,
especially as New Year’s Eve approaches. They range in price
between $50-$500, depending on the figurine and the detail put
into them. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can try
making your own!

In Panama, Panamanians usually celebrate New Year's Eve with a dinner, followed by multiple individual fireworks celebrations. Fireworks begin around 11 pm for parties that last until 1 am, the next day. Many Panamanians leave the city and go to the rural towns across the country, to celebrate with families and friends.

4) COLOMBIA,   SALENTO 

Colombia

Salento
is in the north-east of the department of Quindío, Colombia.  It
was the first settlement in Quindío of the modern era as the main route
from Popayán and Cali to Bogotá used to pass through Salento, but when
the route was diverted the town became isolated and did not develop as
rapidly as the rest of the region. For this reason it has retained more
of its traditional colonial architecture than almost any other town in
the eje cafetero. The historic center of town was inscribed on the
UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the "Coffee Cultural Landscape" in
2011

Xmas

We
finally wear long pants & shoes again: Salento - coffee village in
the Colombian Andes, part of the UNESCO World Heritage "Coffee Cultural
Landscape of Colombia" in the "Zona Cafetera", so its all coffee here.

Copper Canyon

 The
canyons were formed by six rivers that drain the western side of the
Sierra Tarahumara (a part of the Sierra Madre Occidental).

LAST ARROW

The
Ferrocarril Chihuahua al Pacífico (Chihuahua-Pacific Railway), also
known as El Chepe is a major rail line in northwest Mexico, linking
Chihuahua City, to Los Mochis and its port, Topolobampo.   It
crosses the Sierra Madre Occidental traversing the Copper Canyon, a
rugged series of canyons that have led some to call this the most scenic
railroad trip on the continent.  

The 25,000 sq. mi. of the Copper Canyon System is vastly greater than the area of 1,902 sq. mi. of the the Grand Canyon 

Copper
Canyon in Mexico has  the third-largest cableway in the world!
This cableway is 2 miles (3 km) long and it takes you to Bacajipare
Meson in a cabin for 60 people, with glass floors and lots of windows to
enjoy the view of the three canyons.

Entry into highest wind recorded Contest 

HIgh Wind

Hola! Gargoyle has officially entered Papagayo zone as we've spent the past two days beating our way up from the Gulf of Nicoya to our current anchorage off Playa Flamingo. 3

Anchorage

37 knots yesterday followed by a few hours of 42 knot winds made for a fun sail fully reefed along this sun-kissed coast. 

Nirwegian Crew

Our
Norwegian family is loving the challenge and as Norwegians think
sitting on the bow with 40 knots on the nose "refreshing". Marina
Papagayo is now just a short hop away so we'll spend another few nights
on the hook before we duck into the marina on Monday. Cheers everyone
and enjoy this amazing season!

4) ANTON VALLEY PANAMA 

Valle de Anton

The
town is located in the flat wide caldera of the 6 km wide El Valle
volcano that is inactive; there is evidence that it erupted as recently
as about 300,000 years ago Because of its elevation (600 m), it is
cooler than the Panamanian lowlands. 

Anton Valley

Natural
attractions near El Valle include the Chorro El Macho waterfall, Las
Mozas waterfall, the "square" trees behind Hotel Campestre, and a group
of small thermal pools of mineralized water that varies in color
depending on the specific minerals present at a given moment 

Golden Frog

The ear extinct Panamanian Golden Frog lives in the area 
This
species' skin is toxic in the wild; glands on the skin produce
tetrodotoxin and a unique compound called zetekitoxin. The skin of a
single Panamanian golden frog contains enough toxins to kill 1,200 mice.
Its vibrant, yellow color is aposematic, meaning it warns potential
predators of its toxicity.

5)  DANZA DE LOS DIABLITOS, COSTA RICA

Boruca Mask

Danza
de los Diablitos (The Dance of the Little Devils) is a three-day annual
festival, held December 31 through January 2 by the Boruca people, an
indigenous people in Costa Rica. The male participants of the tribe
perform a ritual dance re-enacting the Spanish conquest wearing
elaborate costumes.  

The Fiesta de los Diablitos is an alternate history of Spanish conquest. Boruca villagers don elaborate costumes and stage mock battles with a “bull” that represents Spanish colonists. Throughout the ceremony the Boruca drink chica, a traditional fermented corn beverage. Village elders lead the procession. On the final day of the ceremony, the Boruca triumph over the bull, which is then lit on fire. An all-night celebration ensues. The multi-day event draws over 2,500 villagers and several hundred visitors.

8) DESTINATION JAMAICA 

https://panamaposse.com/montego-bay-yacht-club-jamaica

Jamaica  and the "defintion of Patois"

If
you should look up the official definition of patois, it will state
something to the effect of being a spoken, but non-standard language,
and in all truth, that is exactly what it is. Although patois is widely
spoken in Jamaica, English is the official and national language of the
island.

That
may be a surprise to some, who have only been able to identify
Jamaicans, who have crossed their paths, by recognizing the speech of
this unique language, known as patois.

RJYC

The
Jamaica Yacht Club was formed in 1884 by a group of enthusiastic
sailors. On the 29th of November 1889, the Club was granted a Royal
Charter by Queen Victoria following a visit by Prince Edward, then the
Prince of Wales, who later became Edward VII. Until 1962, when Jamaica
became an independent nation within the Commonwealth, the Commodores
were all Governors of Jamaica, whether or not they were yachtsmen. In
1963 the Commodore was chosen for the first time from the membership of
the Club.

Errol Flynn Marina

Errol
Flynn Marina has the distinction of being the only Caribbean marina
capable of handling the largest yachts in the world.Our face dock
accomodates vessels to 350′ and 24′ draft Med style. However, our
“giga-yacht” dock can accommodate a vessel to 600′ and 32′ draft

size. Smaller vessels can use our slips or select from a moorin

11) The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos)

.. is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and helping support their spiritual journey. In Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Mexicans view it not as a day of sadness but as a day of celebration because their loved ones awake and celebrate with them

Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves. Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl. It has become a national symbol and as such is taught (for educational purposes) in the nation's schools.

Hi Everyone, I thought we'd share a link to our most recent blog post about our travel in Pacific Panama including the Perlas,
which are a must see.

lasperlas1
We visited in November, the water was clear and warm (no jelly fish).
The anchorages were calm (except for the lightning) and very quiet.

4) Notes on the Papagayos, Nicaragua & Northern Costa Rica
Avant won’t make the call today, we will be seeking radiator hose in the thriving metropolis of
Cocos la Playas Costa Rica to repair our engine (again - seems we’re replacing it part by part this week!).

A few tips from our southbound passage through the papagayos:

Plan on poor boat speed/ fuel economy. The wind chop stole about 15-20% of our typical boat speed,
resulting in longer than usual passages and a corresponding reduction in out typical miles per gallon.

Get some cycling glasses if you can. With the spray and wind, keeping watch for lobster pots and fishing
lines to windward is hard. Dodgers salt up with the spray, so you will be looking around them.
When the sun is up sunglasses work, but the clear glasses cyclists wear are great when the light is lower.

Chapstick. You want some. The conditions for chapping lips are ideal.

Check your heavy air setup. Twice. We haven’t sailed with a double reefed main for years, so we were
glad we had double checked that all lines were good to go before we deployed.

Our passage was easy and trouble free, and we hope we don’t sail to windward again any time soon.

5) Caleta de Campos and Isla Grande, MX

Passage Notes:
Heading south from Barra de Navidad towards Ixtapa/Zihuatenejo we hugged the coastline (3nm out) and encountered a series of long lines around Manzanillo and again approaching Ixtapa. In a personal best we managed to snag on two of them in a row, giving us great practice on getting free. One was attended by a panga, one had flags, and one just had a series of white floats a long distance apart. The white floats look just like white caps, so keep an eye out. We draw 7' with our daggerboards down, so after snagging on the second line with them fully down we pulled the boards up to about 4' and were able to float over the rest.

We encountered a 2 knot current out of the south that slowed our south-bound passage dramatically. Your results may vary since we were taking the coastal hugging route.

Caleta de Campos

Caleta de Campos is a fantastic, easy, and pretty anchorage with great sand holding in
20' in the middle of the bay and a lively palapa strewn beach.
The seas were essentially flat for our visit so we were quite comfortable,
but it is wide open with minimal protection so definitely consider it a fair-weather anchorage.

Coconut shrimp and posse shirt at isla grand.jpg
Isla Grande was fabulous as usual. Very busy this time of year with lots of boat parties
and a packed beach. It reminded us a lot of Avalon on Catalina Island in the summer.

Isla Grande
The powerboats have completely taken over and will anchor a boat length apart,
so we took in most of our chain to ride on a short scope during the day to allow them room.
They pretty much all took off just after sunset so we let out chain again
once they departed and slept easy in an empty anchorage.

Sunset at Isla Grande
Sunset

anchorage
Ricardo from Lili Cipriani restaurant came around both days we were anchored at
the island in his panga taking orders for lunch and dinner. It was so much fun to have
freshly prepared seafood delivered to the boat just in time for sunset.
He told us to call on 16 if we needed something, but we had no trouble flagging
him down during his rounds. We highly recommend ordering from him during your stay.

7) Counterposse Honuras to Panama & Panama Canal North to South

This report will have to be dissected in reverse because most of the Posse is transiting to the Caribbean.
Here is an update and some info from Sailing catamaran Saltair3 from Panama on the Pacific side.
After 5 years of sailing and visiting almost all of the islands in the Caribbean we made our decision to transit the canal and cruise the Pacific.

Trio

We arrived at ShelterBay marina on December 6th. We had been hurricaning the boat in the beautiful Rio Dulce of Guatemala.
We started our journey from Fronteras, the small town at the head of the Rio Dulce. The journey down the Rio Dulce is amazing and I hope many of you get the chance to do it. It’s 25 miles one way up the Rio to one of the many marinas located near Fronteras.
Leaving Guatemala for Belize is just a days sail away and much the same for Honduras and the Bay Islands.

After much conversation and a few meetings with a group of fellow sailors regarding the safety and security from Piracy in the area, we left for the Bay Islands. The concern is for the area off eastern coast of Honduras and Nicaragua. Known for Piracy we chose to sail with a few other sailboats for safety. You can find more information on the Piracy issue in the Rio Dulce Facebook group.
Our final push off was from Guanaja, one of the Honduras Bay islands and after 4 nights
and almost 5 days we arrived at ShelterBay.

ShelterBay is a good marina with a nice pool, and the marina manager Juan is a great guy
and does an excellent job of keeping cruisers happy. There isn’t really much to share about
that marina that you won’t easily find when you check in so I won’t bother.
There is an anchorage outside of the marina if you do not want to check into the marina but
to dock your dinghy at Shelterbay marina it is $12 per day. Ouch.
Watch out for the crocodile lying daily in the sun on the southern shore. I think there is two!
One of them approach us in the dinghy when we were still oblivious to the crocs.
We dinghies near our boat which is where it hangs out! I don’t think it was too happy
we were so close to its hang out! It did circle and come at us from out of nowhere,
that’s when I immediately motored away…
Trio

A walk outside of the marina towards the jungle and you will see Sloths and Toucans
as well as a World War bunkers and such. It is a great walk and well worth the effort.
You can do it yourself easily.
The aren’t any crocs here and you will feel a little like Indian Jones.

Trio

We had an amazing and incredibly exciting transit through the Panama canal.
All of our crew were friends and everyone of them had dreams of one day transiting.
I can honestly say it was much more than any of us expected. Incredible experience!
Be sure and get someone to check the web cam and capture your transiting!

Trio

I won’t go into the transit experience but to say, keep an eye on your 125' foot line if you are a line handler!
It’s not something you can get distracted from.

trio

When we came out to the Pacific side we disembarked our Advisor just outside of
the canal markers and inside the Balboa mooring field. You must always be outside of
the Red and Green markers after your advisor leaves or you will be in trouble!
You can anchor here or get a mooring. We still had daylight and chose to continue the
6-7 more miles to Las Brisas anchorage with Panama city in the background.
The Balboa mooring field and anchorage is rolly due to tug and freighter traffic constantly moving past.
Las Brisas has an incredible view of Panama city. While we were here fireworks went off from the
city at one of the parks along the malecon.
The anchorage is about 3/4 of a mile from the city but the view was still awesome!

Trio

The holding here is good in a thick mud like sand. The wind blows from the North
most of the time and there is always plenty of room in the anchorage. It’s huge.
You will need to wash the boat after a week though, as the smog from the city
likes to leave a thin film on your boat. Just walk around with a wet foot or two and
you will see the dark foot prints you will leave behind as the film comes
together in the water from your foot.

trio

There is a good dinghy dock here now and it is run by the Aeronaval guys.
They are always present and in full uniform. Captain Alex is a Panamanian in charge of h
elping cruisers and he keeps an office right at the top of the dinghy dock ramp. He is not AeroNaval.
To find the dinghy dock look for the large aviation style hangar and at it’s base is the dock.
There seems to always be a large yacht tied up to the Aeronval portion of the dock.
You will easily figure out where to dock the dinghy when you get close to it.
Be sure and wear a life Jacket (Salvabidas) and a T-shirt or you may not be allowed to dock your dinghy.
Panama has a dress code and the Naval guys in full uniform don’t like seeing us in less than a T-shirt and shorts. No bikinis either.
We used our cruise ship style key stone life jackets so we could leave them in the dinghy and not be too worried about them being stolen
but Captain Alex and the Naval guys keep a close eye on the dock at least during daylight hours.
We still lock our dinghy with a decent length so our dinghy can be moved if someone needs to tie their dinghy up too.
Don’t leave you engines up either.
It does get crowded at the dinghy dock and you will probably have to crawl on
someone else's dingy to get back onto the dock especially in low tide when the dinghy space shrinks a lot!

trio

If you haven’t got it already then go and download the UBER app. There are lots of taxis in
Panama but they are in rough shape and if you can believe it, they charge more than what
UBER charges and they have no qualms about driving through the "Red Zone” to get you to your destination.
Red Zone = very impoverish area of the city.
Uber cars are always nice clean cars with great air conditioning.
It is very HUMID here and air conditioning is a must in a car stuck in the crazy Panamanian traffic.
One local business man told me every one in Panama has a car Lol! It shows.

trio

There is potable water at the dinghy dock and it tastes pretty good. The hose is at the
top of the ramp and you can get Cpt Alex to toss it down to your jugs waiting in your dinghy.
Careful don’t lean on the metal bar style fence. I did and fell off the edge! Only ended up with a cut on my foot luckily.
Below is a photo of the dinghy dock and the motor yacht that is moored at the Naval end of the dinghy dock.
We have made water in the anchorage but it isn’t very clean looking.
We have swam in the anchorage due to the high heat and humidity but it isn’t very clear water to swim in.
Just 8 miles West is Isla Taboga. The anchorage is quite deep, we’re currently here anchored in 50 feet
and there are quite a few private mooring balls taking up anchorage space,
but right now we total three boats at anchor here and the water is nice and clear and the town small, quaint and cute.
trio

The dinghy dock at the Aeronaval dock in Las Brisas anchorage Panama city with the yacht tied up.

There is a commercial area up at the top of the ramp with a mini market, multiple restaurants and Pizza.
The mini market has lots of groceries and drinks including liquor but no fresh fruit or veg.
There is a nice park up there too with a nice long walkway around the whole bay.
There are bike rentals and scooter rentals and even four wheeled bike rental for up to 6 people!

Diesel is available at both local marinas. Marina Flamenco and Marina La Playita.
We found La Playita 25 cents cheeper than Flamenco but La Playita does not have gasoline,
ONLY diesel and you must make a reservation to come to the dock to fill up.
Water is free to fill up with at the same time. Flamenco marina does not need
a reservation but you need to call them on channel 10 before entering, They will answer.
Moorage is expensive, at least to this sailing family.
$150 for your first night no matter what length and then $2 per foot per night.

trio

Laundry pick up is available but there aren’t any laundry machines around for do it yourself washing.
I don’t know the price exactly but it seems very similar to all the other places we’ve had laundry done.
We do have a small laundry machine onboard.
Here is a phone number for the Laundry guy, a very nice young Chinese man that doesn’t really speak English,
but is fluent in Spanish. I’m sure he speaks Chinese too.
His name is Moises.

With this number comes a recommendation to get the WhatsApp App. Everyone in the Caribbean uses Whats App.
This is his WhatsApp number +507 6481-2611 The laundry is called Freeway Laundry.

trio

Below is a picture of Isla Taboga anchorage at low tide just 8 miles from the Las Brisas anchorage.

Albrook Mall (one L) is a good place to go check out.
Good shoes and an Explorers attitude helps! It is a HUGE mall.
There is a large and good grocery store there called Super Extra,
and upstairs by the Theatres is a Do It Yourself hardware store.
Lots of clothing stores here mostly name brand stores with good selection
and big department stores of mostly made in China stuff.
An Uber from Las Brisas to Albrook is less than $5.00 for up to four people.

trio

You can get a bus but you first need to get a transit card. Yay can get this at the
Cinco De Mayo Metro station. Rides after that on the very clean buses are just 25 cents
and the very clean Subway is just 35 cents for one way trips of any length,
at least that’s what we found on the subway. We rode it end to end on one of the two lines.
It does go above ground for some of the trip but the scenery is mostly city residential,
otherwise it’s a true SubWay. You will see many vendors selling fruit and vegetables
(above ground portion,) while on the subway and at Cinco De Mayo station.
It’s a little cheaper at these stalls and they tend to have more selection if you can believe it.
There is tons more info but the new Panama guide PDF shares all of that information.
This is just our first hand info that I wanted to share.
We have done one quick motor sailing trip to the Las Perlas islands with our
Panama Canal crew, but it was short and I don’t have any pictures. Sorry. Soon we will hove some.

The islands are definitely worth the trip of about 35 miles from Ls Brisas.
Isla Contadora is difficult to anchor at with so many private moorings there but Isla Chapera
was easy with good north protection, good holding, a couple of beautiful beaches, a jungle trail,
great snorkelling with lots of fish and corals and the site of the Survivor series.
Isla Mogo Mogo is also right there to explore.
Those are the only islands we have done so far but we will be back before heading North to Mexico.

trio

Propane is the last thing I have to share.
In Panama they use a different fitting. I have asked many people about how to fill our
bottles and where to get another bottle that would have our North American fittings.
Best way is to take an Uber to La Loceria Tropigas station. Uber took almost
30 minutes to find the station and it cost us just $9 US for the three of us.
Seems super cheap to me and in a nice car too!

You will have to leave your tank with them for a minimum of 2 days.
Over the holidays we have to wait 5-7 days. Then you have to go back and pick it up.
There seems to be no other way. It has to go all the way out to Chilibre for filling.
That’s along the number 9 highway on this map below if you wonder where Chilbre is.
They did tell me that I should be able to get a new North American propane tank at
Do It Yourself hardware store if I wanted another one. I have yet to check.

Well that’s it from the cockpit of Saltair3 on a hot and humid day! Time for a swim here at Isla Taboga.
I hope everyone has a safe and adventurous Panama Posse voyage!
Buen viaje everyone!

Panama Canal December 14 / 2019

SHIPPING INTO PANAMA INFO
Note: DESTINATION I had success shipping 3 ac compressors,air handlers,controls etc from Ft Laud to Vista Mar recently.
Kings Marine did a great job. They have a relative on ground in Colon that delivered packages to marina.
Not sure what equipment they will ship. Attached is their contact info. Gal's name in FT Lauderdal is Marina.
Not a quick process. Took 2 weeks compounded by holidays.

Note: KNOT RIGHT any one else needing items delivered to them via carrier or mail.
UPS does not deliver to Vista Mar, they contract with a third party.
I believe that DHL does come out that far.
The significance of that is there is an additional charge for customs which needs to be collected on receipt.
But UPS will not do that through a third party. With them you have to deposit money into their banks account
and email the receipt to the releasing agent in Panama city for them to send via a third party.
But the bank no longer has a branch in Coronado. So someone has to drive to the bank (don't know where the closest one is).
Cesar was able to do this for me when my debit card was fowarded from my home.
It took 5 weeks, misplaced, many phone calls to the one UPS person that spoke English.
So avoid UPS. Now, if you have been at Vista Mar for awhile, then you know about
Mail Boxes Etc in Coronado. Set up an account with them. Then have everything sent (snail mail, FedEx, UPS, Amazon...

11) Ordering parts to Acapulco, MX

In March 19 our older Raymarine wind instruments failed. We found the parts and part
number from RayMarine. Confirmed with Raymarine that they were in stock.
We needed a reliable dealer between Barra and Acapulco to order and receive them for us.
We made many inquiries before finding Compass yachts in Acapulco (office at the yacht club).
Cinthia spoke and wrote English well. Super helpful.
I think it took about a week to order, ship, pass customs and get to Compass yachts.
They new how to do the customs paperwork, as they are a dealer.
Anyway shipping was not outrageous, but as expected for air.
They didn’t take cc, bank xfer or cash. Since they are at the yacht club and we were staying at marina Acapulco,
we couldn’t get passed the yacht club security. We just called Cinthia and she met us at the gate.
Worth a call or email certainly

Apparently a month ago a sailboat out of LA area sank attempting to come in to marina Chahue in bad weather, T Peck.
The two people on board were not hurt and are apparently back home. They struck the islet at the entrance to the bay at 3am.
The wreck is said to be visible in 20 feet of water

5) Vista Mar Fuel Price, PANAMA

We fueled up at Vista Mar a week ago and the price for Diesel was 2.83$ per Gallon. Gas for the dinghy was 3.20$.
    Lots of room for your boat.   
Hope that helps.

   We cleared out of Vista Mar and have spent the last week getting to Costa Rica.    No problems with that other than getting to Flamenco Marina to do the Paperwork. Unless you want to use an agent.

   Cab ride From Vista Mar to Coronado is 6$. Plus Bus ride of 1.5-2.0 hrs to Allbrook Mall then 10 min 5$ cab ride to Flamenco Marina.
Cheers from

Vista Mar

6) Punta Mala, Panama
Sailed from the Perlas around Punta Mala last night and this morning to Punta Venau.  Forecast was for about 17-20 from the north with seas to 4 ft on about 6 second periods.  Forecast was about right, but we saw winds to 25 and max seas to maybe 8 ft (forecasts are for average seas I think).  Anchored now in Punta Venau—very pleasant with a wind from shore at 15-20, not at all rolling.  Sharing this info for others who might be on the reverse posse.  These conditions would be terrible for heading to the canal, but for the other direction the conditions were close to ideal.  Did I mention the clear skies and a moon that didn’t set until 4 AM?

7) Acapulco, MX
Hi Posse! It's been a slow start to 2020 for Gargoyle and her crew as we're in Acapulco getting a few issues we've put off taken care of before heading south. Our deep freeze has been giving us problems all last year before it died all together in November. Also, we noticed that the engine was running warm under load and diagnosed a raw water pump issue as well as heat exchanger in need of service. Luckily we've located both a great mechanic as well as refrigeration team here through Luis at La Marina Acapulco.

Aca

Diesel mechanic - Oscar from Nautical Boat shop 714 182 6205 Refrigeration - Contact Ramon 744 587 8575. He's more the catch-all guy that helps source services and is also fluent in English. Language is worth mentioning as you won't find English as readily spoken here as in other places so get your Google Translate app ready.  We've also used Vincente, mentioned in many posts and found him to provide great service for fuel, laundry and random tasks such as locating an odd sized battery for our voltmeter.

We've passed the time exploring this city and meeting some great people. Highlights have been the cliff divers viewed at night from La Perla restaurant and the museum at Fort San Diego.

Acapulco

One note for anyone planning to use La Marina Acapulco. They tend to put transients on the outside face docks and when the overnight winds shift to the north you can really get tossed around. We've seen a number of boats tossed hard against the dock as the waves are breaking over the docks. Recommend spring lines and plenty of well placed large fenders! That said, the amazing swimming pool here helps offset the few rough evenings we've had and the grocery store right across the street is a joy. Especially the fresh sushi in the fish department which is a welcome treat. Taxis are easily flagged outside the main gate. Recommend the old VW Beetles for a real throwback treat. Finally, if anyone has pets in need of vaccinations, we found a fantastic vet that makes boat calls to the marina. Yes, they actually came to us and updated Sam and Dean's rabies vaccinations. Now that's great service!

Vet

Vet - Clinica Veterinaria Bichos Acapulco - you can find them on Facebook and they use Whatsapp to communicate.  All in all we've really enjoyed the big city life of Acapulco and highly recommend a visit.

Adventure Scientists

Adventure
Scientists is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports
scientists through the planning and execution of large-scale data
collection projects for scientific partners around the world. They
mobilize skilled adventure volunteers—hikers, sailors, skiers, divers,
and more—who operate on any scale from almost anywhere on Earth to
collect high-quality scientific data. This empowers scientists to think
bigger and access the data, public support, and funding they need to
achieve impact. Adventure Scientists’ goal is to accelerate
environmental and human health solutions.  

Mexico’s Pacific Coast is home to some of the world’s most biodiverse coral reefs, underwater communities that support sharks, turtles, and other marine life. They also support human lives by buffering the coastline from intense storms and providing livelihoods from fishing and tourism. Yet these reefs are imperiled by ocean acidification, more frequent and powerful storms due to climate change, and damage from human overuse.
