This seminar provides you information gathered not only from years of first-hand experience by these authors, but also tips from other cruisers now in Mexico. It covers not only sailing, but land, sea and air travel, so you will be totally prepared and ready for your cruise whether it will be a quick one or a cruise spread out over several years.
Specific topics covered in this seminar include:

*Places to go and things to do, see and eat. This includes short land trips, shopping, sight-seeing, and places to leave your boat for short excursions, longer trips, or for the hurricane seasons.
*Types of maintenance and repairs you should plan on, or larger projects you might have completed on your boat while in Mexico.
*Some of the good ways to access your money and keep it safe while you are in Mexico.

The McCalebs and the McIntoshes have conducted cruising seminars together for several years. They have helped thousands of other sailors prepare for cruising. Attendees at this seminar will be given a copy of their new book, CRUISING NOTES – Underway to Mexico.
