The dates for the second annual Cruisers Rally to El Salvador are March 12, 2011 through April 30, 2011 with the grand cruisers party held on May 1 at Hotel Bahia del Sol. Entry deadline is March 11, 2011.  The rally starts on March 12 with a big kick-off party so plan your departature carefully.

Hotel owner Marco Zablah has again pledged $1,800 in cash awards. Each arriving boat will receive a welcome package and be offered generous discounts at the hotel.


The west coast of Central America has often been bypassed, as southbound cruisers tend to take a direct route to Costa Rica or Panama. The objective of this rally is to help cruisers get together to discover the less traveled but spectacular destination of El Salvador and have a lot of fun at the same time. In addition to this, our aim is also to create awareness among Salvadorians about the cruising lifestyle.

With the growing number of cruisers wanting to venture south of Mexico the country is becoming more accessible to cruisers. The rally destination of Bahia del Sol offers a low-key, relaxing atmosphere where like-minded cruisers can meet and enjoy “Bahia” with a “cruisers vacation” feel and safely leave their boats while they travel inland Central America. Of course northbound cruisers are also welcome to participate.

Please refer from time to time to this blog for important updates. There are links in the upper right-hand corner of the blog directing you to the rules and other information.
We also have a Yahoo group for those cruisers looking for a buddy boat to travel south or seeking information from other cruisers about the rally or El Salvador. The link is posted under Rally Links.

All the posts prior to this are about the 2010 rally and may not apply to the 2011 rally.
