Puerto Escondido is the gateway for boaters to the central Sea of Cortez. With dramatic mountain backdrops, great fishing, islands to explore and an abundance of anchorages to discover, the region has long been a favorite of cruisers.

Now, you can enjoy state-of-the-art facilities to accommodate your nautical adventures in the region at the new and improved Marina Puerto Escondido. Marina Puerto Escondido celebrated its grand opening this November in time to welcome this winter's cruising fleet to The Sea.

The marina came under new management in 2016, and over the past 20 months, the new proprietors have made significant improvements to the marina facilities in this beautiful natural harbor. Dredging at the entrance to the harbor helps accommodate deeper draft vessels. A new breakwater further insulates the harbor from winter's north winds, and innovative modern docks are now available. To improve the environment, the marina’s owners saw to the removal of decades of trash from the bay floor.

There are now more than 100 slips available to welcome boats from 25' to 200' with state-of-the-art docks. Marina Puerto Escondido slips also contain 100 AMP pedestals that have connections for 125V, 250V, and 480V for mega yachts and 50 AMP pedestals that also have connections for 125V and 250V for smaller yachts. You can now enjoy potable water right there at your slip.

Additional offerings include 100 maintained moorings in the sheltered harbor. Let’s not forget the human factor, with friendly and helpful dockhands and office staff ready to assist you and make your stay enjoyable and secure.

The new marina offers a plethora of services including travel lift, boat ramp and dry storage. To make your stay even more pleasant, there is a rooftop shaded pool, Pepegina's Pizza and a market for your basic cruising needs. Amenities include  dockside showers, laundry, WiFifor guests and much more, which you can explore on the Marina Puerto Escondido website (marinapuertoescondido.com).
