Sailing around Mexico

Being new to the coastal cruising(7 months) of Mexico from the Banderas bay and Sea of Cortez and the Baja coast I would like to have some HANDS ON (only please) insight on the following.
1 It seems that I get two distinct opinions about being below the 27th parallel after May 15. One is it will result in instant death and destruction! The second is go about your business( enjoy the southerly wind) but watch your forecast a little closer and keep your hurricane holdups within a day or two.
2 At current we are in La Cruz and are thinking of staying here till mid August then going way north in Sea of Cortez or stopping at Cabo then up to San Diego.
I would like to hear from those who have ACTUALLY done one or more of the options or maybe you have other words of advice or tips we could use.
Insurance or time is of no issue.
With all due respect, please disregard this post if your information is second hand. Thank you. BTW Mexico is AWESOME!!!
