Marina Palmira (we prefer) a little further from town on the north end (still walkable) but quieter, less busy than Marina De La Paz where all the anchor-outs are transiting to shore, plus charter panga traffic. Center of town is about a 30 minute walk from the marina. Palmira also has a free shuttle into town, 3 times a day. Cab rides back are only 50 pesos (about $4) from downtown.

Boat Yard – PALMAR is the third yard to the south of Marina de La Paz
Marina del Palmar, 5 de Febrero at Rangel/Topete, along the water
Owner Luis Abaroa Geraldo speaks good english
Very clean yard, Just be there to observe the work, this is advice we would give to anyone for any yard. October 2011 they did our bottom, raised the waterline, plus a bit of fiberglass patching where we removed a Dynaplate. In and out in about 50 hours total! No surprise on the price, exactly what they quoted. In January 2013 we had our bottom painted again (has to be done more often in warm waters.) Again, they were fast, efficient, and right on budget. Also, we need a large travel lift and they now have two including a 100-ton (we are 8 ft + draft and have a tall arch on the stern). If you love something like Petit Trinidad paint (you may want to bring it down from U.S.). Comex (Mexican paint company) makes hard and ablative marine paints. December 2015 was the last time we were there for bottom paint. Talk to us about a few tips if you are ready to go in there.

HECTOR JULIO ESCALANTE ARAIZA – NEW IMAGE UPHOLSTERY
He has done many projects for us and our friends – interior and exterior cushions, dodgers, biminis, sun shades, dinghy chaps Boat canvas and upholstery fabrication and repairs. Why do all this hard work yourself when Hector can do a great job for you at a great price. He made a beautiful sun shade for us, re-did our dodger and bimini, and recovered our cockpit cushions and the helm seat on our dinghy.
