Our current location

Puntarenas, Costa Rica (09° 58.952″ N, 084° 47.736′ W)

Where are we now?


Aubrey and Judy are enjoying their voyages through Central America. They started out this season in November 2018 from Barra de Navidad in Mexico. Their first port was Manzanillo, then on to Acapulco and by the end of November were in Puerto Chiapas in southern Mexico by the Guatemalan border where they completed their out routine to leave Mexico for El Salvador, By passing Guatemala they arrived in Bahia del Sol where they spent a month enjoying Christmas and the New Year with that friendly cruising community. In mid January they were in Puesta del Sol in Nicaragua for week or so, then spent a few weeks in Costa Rica where they are presently (in February) in Puntarenas. They plan to spend another month in Costa Rica going as far as Golfito near the Panamanian border, then in early April taking a direct passage back to Bahia del Sol in El Salvador to leave Veleda there for the summer when they return to Elliot Lake in Ontario.
