Upon arriving in Mazatlan, I had my vehicle inspected and was surprised how easy the procedure was. The ferry left about 6.30pm without failure. I had a cabin reserved for the overnight cruise, and the staff was very friendly and courteous. The cabin itself was...More

The trip between topolobambo and la paz was more than 30 h delayed. That was not the worst part though. They squeezed in the passengers from the delayed (fully booked) ferry together with next days (fully booked) ferry. There was no info and as you...More

First, know that I'm not a "roughing it" kind of girl, so I was worried about taking the Ferry from La Paz to Mazatlan. We paid extra for a room, thank goodness, but many people just bring blankets and sleep on the floor or in...More

WOW! I asked a friend who lives in the area what to expect. He said that it'd been years since he'd traveled the crossing there, but that he remembered it as spartan and not to expect too much. He missed it by miles. The experience...More

Fairly basic seating. Bad food. Long wait to get tickets, long wait to get off once docked, then again for baggage. Needs to be streamlined.

The cargo ferry sails every other day when the passenger ferry is not available. We were warned the service was subpar. We spent the night in a chase-lounge in a common area. The snorers were sometimes annoying. The food could be characterized as grub and...More

After many years of wanting to take the ferry, my wife and I finally boarded at Mazatlán, in mid-February 2017, to sail to La Paz. I think there are at least 2 ferries available. We embarked as passengers; no car; and, all in all, it...More

Like everyone else said, you have to have a closed crate or carrier for him. Though no one seems to check much on your way on the boat, they will have issue if you don't have a storage unit for your dog. They aren't... More

We have a 32 foot motorhome. Can we take it on the ferry from Mazatlan to La paz?

I would check with Baja ferries to be certain, but I'm pretty sure you can as there were tractor/trailers on board. You might also check into the cargo ferry as you can stay with your rv on them. Safe travels

Is there secure parking at the La Paz ferry terminal. The website is in Spanish. We need to leave our truck there for 7 days.

No idea. I don't recall seeing any long term parking, but I'd swing by the terminal a little early and inquire. If not, you can probably make a deal with a nearby hotel. Might be safer as well. Safe travels.
