May 15th marks the beginning of the Tropical Storm Season. This means that we have now entered Hurricane Season in the Northeastern Pacific. Tropical Storm Aletta is right on time.
The good thing is that Aletta (marked in yellow) is not that strong, moving west and poses no threat to us in the Puerto Vallarta area. Read more about Aletta HERE.
The Tropical Storm Season also means that it is time for us to head north which we plan to do in the next week. The storm area reaches as far north as the Tropic of Cancer at 23.28 degrees latitude, insurance companies typically cover boats north of 24 degrees latitude (La Paz is just north of 24 degrees), and we intend to stay well north of that latitude this summer in the Sea of Cortez.
We expect to have pretty soft (easy) conditions to go north. Despite the daily temperatures north of 100F (in La Paz), we are still excited to head north!
