Reviews for Marina Cortez
Great marina for temporary moorage, 2015-02-20
Captain: , Seattle (396)

Marina Cortez is new and nice, but it's design is a bit odd. No pilings, but cables attached to weights on the bottom of the bay, and no breakwater. The result is that the swell and surge galllops through the marina and you'd better install chafe protection in a Norther. On the plus side, a friendly staff, bike racks, pretty good security and free parking (if you need that). The bathrooms and showers are a hike away, though. The prices are about the same as the other marinas in La Paz. All-in-all, areat marina for temporary moorage.

Marina Cortez is a superlative, relatively new, first class marina. It also occupies a prime location within La Paz at the southern extreme of the malecón. Although lacking the ultra-deluxe amenities of Marina CostaBaja%u2019s mega resort, it more than compensates for this with its superb level of service and genuine concern for transient visitors. The onsite 24-hour security and attention are the best we have experienced in Baja.

We left our vessel unattended here while we engaged on an eight day land trek to explore the Sierra de la Laguna. Upon our departure the staff asked if we would like them to arrange to have the boat cleaned for our return. We replied in the affirmative and never gave it another thought while we were away. When we returned our craft appeared as though it had been prepped to be put on display at a Boat Show. Frankly, I was somewhat embarrassed we previously never had it looking so fine.

We spent an additional three days aboard while remaining in La Paz. Initially, we thought the marina may be noisy due to its location. The level of sound, however, coming from the heart of downtown La Paz and its well-attended venues never seemed to penetrate the serenity of the marina.

La Paz is a magnificent town and its malecón, the tiled path beside the waterfront, is often the center of its heartbeat. Along its path egrets, ibises, and several species of sandpiper forage along the shore. Local fishing boats pull up on the sand. We visited here during December and there was much holiday flair, with Christmas ornaments decorating the street lamps and a brass band playing carols to those passing by.

Serendipitously, development of Los Cabos has siphoned off the glitz-seeking hedonists and left La Paz utterly charming and a thoroughly authentic city for the rest of us. Everyday life focuses on day-to-day work rather than tourism, yet it has all a modern traveler needs: a beguiling malecón, pleasant and affordable lodgings, seaside restaurants, movie theaters, a surfeit of festivals, and white-sand beaches with splendid sunsets. The ice cream on the cake is La Fuente, a local favorite ice cream store nearby. Serendipity indeed.

One note of caution to consider is the marina is planning on beginning construction of expanding its facilities from 50 to 150 slips beginning early in 2014.

Inexpensive, downtown and responsive, 2013-08-30

We absolutely love the Marina Cortez. At 53'overall we are the smallest boat in the marina but the manager and staff except us as well as the mega yachts. One of the few marinas in Mexico where there are more Mexican than Americans or Canadians, very nice. Pricing is less than most of the other local marina's (Marina La Paz/Marina Palmera). The local resturants in the Marina are inexpensive and appreciative when you patronize thier facilities.

Best Marina experience we have had in all of Mexico from San Carlos to Z-town.
