Updated ferry prices La Paz -Matzalan

Hi; We are on our way from Chicago to Buenos Aires and just crossed with the ferry from La Paz Baja to Mazatlan. There is no updated information about pricing on the sites;
Prices today as follows; 1900 Pesos each. If you can get a cabin 500 P for one w/o bathroom 700 P with bathroom. in addition you must get you temporary import document at the port or when you enter Mexico. $400.00 deposit on CREDIT CARD . It will be reimbursed when you leave the country.You don;'t need it for the BAJA. Our blog;
Hope this helps you if you plan on running the BAJA
Cheers, Willem

thanks for the current boat prices.

vehicle bond price is not $400 across the board. depends on the age of the vehicle
don't forget there are fees for the vehicle permit plus visa fees for the person.
the procedure is to 1st visa yourself into mexico then bond/permit the vehicle you have with you as it's tied to your visa.

also it is cheaper and easier to get a vehicle permit at the northern baja/us border than at the port in la paz, if you plan on crossing.
those who waited to do TVIP at port in la paz always reported it was difficult and the prices paid were higher than those who took care of all of this up north.
