As you cross the border into Mexico from Guatemala this Frigate awaits your arrival. I expected to be boarded but it must have been watch change. Lucky us! Normally all boats going North or South are boarded.
Entrance to the port of Chiapas. Note the pescaderos in the tiny cayuco and the swell.
The port is very industrial.
As the wet season is to start in May, the locals are doing the burn off like elsewhere in this part of the world.Makes for some interesting sunsets.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
