Agua Verde Experience


The Multihull/Seawind rally was quickly approaching so further north we went, stopping in another favorites spot Agua Verde. With no fresh veggies since Mazatlan (San Evaristo’s tienda was pretty bare) we were hoping that the tienda in town would replenish our supplies. So off in the kayaks we went.

Meeting Bule Bule in Yelapa


The rumor mill was packed with things about Yelapa but we tried to come into it without expectations or reservations. Straight out of the gate it got interesting. About a mile out a panga came to meet us and introduces himself as “Bule Bule” and says follow me to a mooring ball. Good start. About half way back another panga…
