Discover Mexico on a Luxury Yacht Charter

luxury yacht charter along Mexico's coastline
Why not look slightly further afield than the French or Italian Riviera next year and explore the wonderfully exotic Mexican coastline on your superyacht charter? The Baja Peninsula is a thin strip of land which stretches approximately 750 miles along the coast of Mexico, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Gulf of California, or Sea of Cortes, on the other.
The region has always been popular with travellers keen to explore the mountain and desert-like scenery inland, and now its stunning coastline – dubbed the Mexican Riviera - is becoming increasingly popular with guests on a superyacht charter. Those on luxury yacht charter can choose between three distinct yachting areas that the region boasts. In the north there is Ensenada, just an hour from the US border, which is characterized by state-of-the-art marinas and luxury resorts. Meanwhile, at the southern tip of the peninsula is the vivacious Los Cabos region, which is not unlike the Saint-Tropez of Latin America. The third region is La Paz, the gateway to the Se of Cortez, and a delightful area of coastline surrounded by some spectacular islands. Highly recommended on any luxury yacht charter around the Baja Peninsula is a trip to any one of the Pacific lagoons in the area. Between January and March Grey Wales come to breed and raise their young in these idyllic lagoons.  
Another area of Mexico becoming increasingly popular with guests on a superyacht charter is Banderas Bay, situated on the Central Pacific Coast. Banderas Bay is one of Mexico’s largest bays, measuring 20 miles across and boasting more than 60 miles of coastline. It is also one of the deepest bays in the world with depths of more than 3,000 feet. Surrounded by mountains, the horse-shaped bay offers endless opportunities for those on a luxury yacht charter all whilst at safe anchorage, stunning white-sandy beaches and a diverse sea-life make for some spectacular dive sites whilst those looking for a more relaxing holiday can lay out and catch the sun on any number of beautiful sandy beaches.
