The Sea of Cortez is a popular first stop for cruisers coming from the West Coast of the US (or you can buy a boat already there), while the Bahamas are popular with East Coast cruisers. Both are great and popular cruising grounds . . . and very different from one another.
I’ve cruised both and compare them in terms of weather, hurricane risk, sailing opportunities, snorkeling, hiking, towns, services and more.
