Hi, no comment on other places, but we have hauled out at both yards in the Vallarta area and have had fine experiences in both places.
Opequimar is cheaper, and a bit rougher, but they can haul your boat just fine. David Barba is an honest guy, I had him Imron my topsides for under 5K, and the job was very good considering the environment
. Obviously, we didn't get the same finish as we would in a climate-controlled shed in the USA, but we were happy.
Both places will let you do your own work, and if that's your plan you will have no issues with cost. I think that the lift
at La Cruz might be about half again more than Opequimar.
Peter Vargas is running the show at La Cruz, and he has always been very good to deal with. La Cruz used to throw out some pretty spectacular numbers for basic work, but that is no longer happening to my knowledge. We've been out of there for about a year and a half, but spent the better part of ten years in that area, so we know the cast of characters pretty well.
Anyway, good luck.
