Puerto Aventuras – N 20.29 W087.13 – Dec 11 – 14 2009

This is a great stop while traveling either way – to or from Belize.  The Marina sits in the middle of a large upscale residential complex.  There are stores a plenty, restaurants galore.  This is also home to a very successful dolphin breeding program.  They also have manatees and for a small fee, you too can feed them.  The marina is side tie or med tie and a very reasonable rate of $20 per day for sailboats.  You can contact the very helpful office manager “Gabby” in the office at

 One of the residents and restaurateurs we met was Gringo Dave.  He’s a real personality and runs a nice restaurant along the promenade.  Aside from his many business partners he enjoys the company of his two dogs, Yoda and Scruffy.

Our neighbours on the dock were Lani and Mads of m/v Dauntless.  We enjoyed spending time with them, had a lot ‘o  laughs and ate some good food.  The area surrounding the Marina offers a plethora of dining opportunities.  Besides owning their beautiful 80’ Lazarra Motor Yacht they also own our Sister ship – Corsair, and we thought we had enough to do owning one boat.  They spoiled Doc and made our stay in Puerto Adventuras a fun filled memory.  What fun we have meeting so many interesting people…It’s All Good!
