Mexico Yacht Charter Guide
Mexico is a country of contrasts. With some of the oldest history in the world, Mayan and Aztec influences meet with Spanish and American cultures to create a diverse and seductive modern culture. Home to incredible ruins, hedonistic resorts and beautiful beaches, a Mexico yacht charter will allow you to experience everything that the country has to offer. The vast underwater playground is heaven for divers – with underwater museums, tropical reefs and the largest concentration of whale sharks in the world, there are countless dive and snorkel sites to explore from your private boat. Above the waves a land of beautiful peninsulas contrasted with luxury resorts, fantastic food and isolated islands is waiting to be explored.
Key Cruising Areas: The Pacific and Caribbean coasts of Mexico offer untouched coastlines, lagoons and quiet villages to discover, as well as the famous party spots to stop at. The offshore Marieta Islands also offer great sailing options.
Don’t Miss: Hop on a glass bottom boat for a unique museum trip to the underwater museum in Cancun. 500 monumental sculptures aim to capture the interaction of art and the environment, and form part of an artificial reef structure. An amazing sight and for those who want to dive in you can also snorkel the museum.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The colonial town turned beach resort city of Puerto Vallarta is backed by lush green hills and looks out onto sparkling blue waters. A beautiful setting, the town is also renowned for its nightlife, filled with stylish bars and excellent eateries. Book a table at the Café des Artistes – considered Vallarta’s finest restaurant – for gourmet fusion food and romantic décor.
Local Culture: From enormous archaeological sites to Aztec and Mayan ruins, Mexico is filled with amazing historic treasures. The Mayan and Aztec remains are some of the oldest ruins on Earth, dating back to 20,000 BC. Visit the pyramids in Chiapas and Yucatan, or the haunting Mayan city of Palenque, hidden in the rainforest of Chiapas.
Best Beach: Cancun, Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta are famous for their stunning beaches, lively atmosphere and endless choices of activities. For a change of pace, sail to Isla Espiritu Santo. The red, rocky island sits suspended in an impossibly blue sea, where the pristine white beach is excellent for sunbathing and spotting local wildlife.
IYC recommends: Take your private yacht out to Magdelena Bay for an awe-inspiring wildlife experience. As you watch the birds swirling over the orange hills of the land, you may not even notice as silent giants rise from the deep blue waters until the arch of a 50-foot whale glides past your boat. The residents of the bay are not shy, and this may be the closest you will ever see Gray Whales. After an incredible day, anchor in the bay for dinner on the deck under a canopy of stars.
