The hurricane season in Baja California Sur runs from mid-August through mid-October. Although a handful of hurricanes have affected the northern state of Baja California, the tropical cyclone season is almost exclusively a Baja California Sur issue. Since 1948, only four Category 1 Hurricanes, including 2014's Odile, and four Tropical Storms have made it to northern Baja California. Fortunately, Marina Puerto Escondido has amazing natural protection that makes our location one of the safest hurricane holes in all of the Sea of Cortez.
