The hidden surprises of Puerto Escondido

Puerto Escondido, or Hidden Port, is a secluded bay on the east side of the Baja California peninsula.

We were supposed to stay there for a week. We stayed almost three.

Puerto Escondido was supposed to be our base for Adriana to make a business trip, for a visit to nearby Loreto, to restock our fresh supplies, and also to catch up on homeschooling. All happened.

But there were some unexpected surprises. First, we met with m/v Adagio again. Also, for the first time we crossed paths with another Hallberg Rassy – like Pesto – and coincidently they were also a family of liveaboard cruisers. Add to that s/v Coastal Drifter, and all of a sudden we were a group of 4 cruising families, summing up 7 kids. We rocked the bay. Literally.

A surprise of a different kind was the visit of Tropical Storm Blanca – the earliest recorded in the history of Baja. And we were there.

All in all, we had three intense weeks in this bay, and over the next days I will be posting updates about it. Stay tuned.
