Early map of Puerto Escondida, Baja California, Mexico.
An undated, incomplete chart missing the upper half where there most likely was a population plan and index that corresponded to the alphabetical notations on the map. It is missing any type of cartouche or legend describing the chart. The title was derived from the content of the map. It appears to be a plan of Puerto Escondido and the islet of Cayo Escondido located in the southeastern part of Baja California, Mexico, some 15 miles south of Loreto on the Sea of Cortez. The chart focuses on topography, reflected by the relief represented by contour lines, as opposed to the port itself in terms of depth. Puerto Escondido is well-known as a natural harbor protected from the strong northeast winds.
