THE ESCALERA NAUTICA
is a 1.9 billion dollar project created by FONATUR to encourage tourism and development in Baja California. FONATUR stands for the National Trust Fund for Tourism and Development.
“The plan calls for 22 full-service marinas, 10 of them new. Of the existing 12, 7 will be improved, and 5 are judged as already adequate. The 10 new marinas will be located on sites with natural shelter, or bays, a feature the peninsula has in abundance. Five of these are to be in Baja California, 3 in Baja California Sur, and 1 each in Sonora and Sinaloa.”
Additionally, the plan calls for an 84-mile highway route for towing boats from one side of the peninsula to the other. This feature will allow boat travelers quick access to either body of water for those without time or interest in sailing around the southernmost tip of Baja California Sur. Further, the plan calls for improving the road between Mexicali and San Felipe to allow bigger boat towing rigs crossborder access to the Sea of Cortez.
The plan also calls for improvements in 10 existing airports and 10 airstrips, to make it easier for tourists to get to the chain of marinas. In this manner, Mexico hopes it will attract year-round mooring and rental income.”
