Arriving at the Estero de Jaltepeque (a.k.a. Bahia del Sol to Cruisers) is a bit daunting. The boats must pass through the surf and over a bar in order to enter the tranquil estero. The boat above, Tide ‘N Knots, is leaving on a relatively calm day. It can be quite exciting, but with guidance from Murray and Collette (Tarazed), and Jim and Susie (Sparta), a safe passage can be made.
