Where to go????

Hello I have a few questions that I would like to ask if I may. I recently became single again and then lost my job due to cut backs so now I am in the best place to go do some sailing. I have sailed around the gulf from Naples FL to Grand Isle LA and then down to Texas and now I am wondering where I should go now, I like Mexico and I love the Keys and the Bahamas would be a treat. I have all of the time in the world but have a limited amount of money. I guess one of the questions would be Where would you go if you had a fully equipped boat? Next what do you think you would have to spend in a month to do this trip?

Limited cash?

I'd go to mexico. Get hammered on tequila to forget about the job loss. Find several senoritas to remind you why you like being single. Then get swine flu and remember that Obama has your health care on the "front burner"

I wish I could go

As for how much? I have no idea what senoritas and tequila cost in mexico

Okay so we have one vote for Mexico and one for Panama, I guess what I mean about the money is what it would cost for fees to enter the country or slip fees or can you anchor some where there or water, fuel, food... Does anyone have a idea???

I have to admit I am pretty new at the blog thing but I have read a lot of post here and there are so many people with so much knowledge of sailing I don’t understand why only two places have been mentioned, I thought I would get tons of new places that were good to go to and not so good and some to stay away from. I have sailed a fair amount myself all around the gulf and now have the time to head a little farther, is there anyone that has a favorite spot or two??

I would go to the Bahamas. I have spent four sailing seasons there, and multiple charters from Florida to the Bahamas over decades. You can live on the hook, and it will take you years to see it.

Hurricane season go to N.E. Florida, and it can inexpensive to stay in a marina. If you have no a/c you can do like I did. I put a window a/c unit, and build a box over the hatch to keep the boat cool.

In the Bahamas you can be a hermit, or do the nightlife, and everything in between. You can bake your own bread, and take a huge bag of rice. If you can catch fish you will never need to buy much in the way of eats.

The only problem is beer. Bud, or Heineys will cost $40 a case. Hope you like rum, cuz it's dirt cheap. My gallery has lots of Bahama pics.......i2f
