The marina in La Cruz isn't doing much to help their business. With the only anchorage outside their marina, dinghy dock prices are $40 pesos, an additional $40 pesos for a shower and good luck getting water. It's gone as far as them charging $40 just to drop someone off at the dock and even the same to go visit a friend at their boat on the dock. I've spoken with the harbor master for La Cruz Marina who confirmed all of this. His excuse; "taxes are more here". The dinghy dock in Cabo is only $30!! The only way around this is to land the dinghy on the beach just outside the marina entrance, so far we haven't heard of or had any problems there though we do get asked (usually twice daily) where our dinghy is. If you find yourself in La Cruz be prepared to shell out pesos even if you're at the dock as prices here are the highest in PV. Rant done. We're moving to Neuvo Vallarta as soon as we pull our hook.

Re: La Cruz Marina - Heads up!!

$0.40 Mexican Pesos= $.03 U.S. Sounds pretty darn cheap to me......
