Boatyard? We don't need no stinking, Boatyard!
There are plenty ( OK, more than five) yards in San Diego Area, but not much dry storage attached at a reasonable price. You would be better off trucking it straight to Baja Naval in Ensenada where they have a good yard and lower prices. Obviously you would have to "import" the yacht to Mexico, but since that's where your going you could kill two birds and save some money.
Further, unless it has to do with your available time off, heading south in the spring is a little bass ackward, since the weather in Baja Sur can be hot as hell with a chance of hurricanes in the summer. Hence the fall migration south and bash north before May.
Great cruising grounds and La Paz is an entirely different ( more family, less party) venue than Cabo.
Do some research about the weather before you go.
