Marina Vallarta

Marina Vallarta Marina Vallarta This is the main channel leading into Marina Vallarta. The marina is packed with a a lot of high-end recreational boats and fishing boats that cater to Mexican and foreign tourists. Condos, restaurants and small shops surround the marina, which can be pretty festive, particularly on those evenings when the fishermen return with a good catch!The marina is located within a mile of the airport and about 30 minutes from downtown on a local bus.At the far end of this channel, near the harbor entrance, there are large piers that can handle three cruise ships at a time. They also accommodate a couple of 200+ ft. yachts that are too big to bring into the marina.Sea Story is berthed on one of the docks to the right in this picture.

Jerry - Good to see you've put a blog together, and a handsome one at that. I'll put a link to it on my blog Spindrift (

I've read your cruising logs regularly - I can't believe you've done four trips to Mexico already. I've yet to do one (but then I've been busy doing other things).

I got back the 1st of March from a nine week charter cruise in the BVIs and Leewards and can hardly wait to go back.

We really should get together this summer sometime for a sail together. Fair winds! - Jim

Thanks Jim. I'll link to your's as well. Maybe we start a whole bloggers' net of sailing, retired public historians!

Do hope to get together this summer. We've been talking about it too long without doing it...
