Taken in Tobago Cays in the Grenadines a few weeks ago. this is a marine park, with lots of diverse wild life to look at in the water and on land, including Iguana's, Turtles, Tortises, coral, and of

We spent a couple of months cruising the Panamanian coast north of the canal.  Including a trip up the river to David.  Highly recommend.  Also Las Perlas is stunning. 

If you want to kill more time and the borders loosen then Costa Rica and Nicaragua are well worth a visit.  

But the jewel is Mexico and sea of cortez. World class and not to be missed.

I agree on the sea of Cortez. Spent a season cruising there. Cabo San Lucas and La Paz are really fun places.

would love to move on and cruise these other places, but..... not this year. its all still closed borders. we have friends that got through Panama a week ago and headed for los Perlas, they were allowed to stay 1 day, get some diesel then had to move on, and were told in no uncertain terms to spread the word that no other yachts are allowed,even to get diesel.! so they are now sailing the 4000nm to Tahiti direct. 

over in the islands of Grenadines where we are borders of the next closest islands are opening on 1st july to St lucia and Grenada. Trinidad doesnt look like opening any time soon. so well be heading to Grenada early July to cruise there abit and then haul out for 15 months and fly home, then resume around the world later on, looking for crew when we do this to help us i should think. we love having capable people onboard and mix it up and share the experience with.

Making  our next move through the islands, after 3.5 months in the Grenadines we are sailing to Grenada. Trinidad arnt opening their borders any time soon.

we still have to go through quarantine in Grenada for the now shortened 10 days and then have a test, but its a new island to explore. it was rumoured to be cancelling quarantine in July but hasnt happened.

after being there for a month or so and before the bad hurricane months of August and Sept, we might be hauling out and flying home for a while. stay tuned this adventure isnt over yet..!

into day 3 of Quarantine, in Grenada, with 2 very energetic kids onboard. 10 and 13 yr old boys. lots of swimming happening as well as school time.

seems to be a very friendly atmosphere and helpful. looking forward to be out of quarantine and explore the many coves/bays and some walks in the forests, seeing the water falls etc.

had a fast sail to Grenada, broad reach at an average of 9.1 top speed of 13.4 even with a reef in the main. Love this Grand Soleil, sails easily at good average speeds and this is fully loaded with 800ltr of water and 400ltr of diesel and 2 months of food. this is one fasst house.!
