Picante Cruise Cost

Anybody take the Picante Cruise lately and know what the cost per person was? We're looking for more things to do with our group this year and it sounds like this may fit the bill.

Can we have just a Little More Shilling?

If you are going to continue the blatant promotion Gary then I suggest that you turn in the D.E. badge.

If you're considering a Picante cruise I'd make reservations ASAP when you arrive. Either directly or through an activities person at your hotel. Some of these cruises do fill up during the busy season. Another nice thing about the Picante cruises is that a bus will pick you up at your hotel/condo. At least they did a few years ago when we did the snorkel trip. And FYI when we did that trip we saw lots of whale action.

I appreciate your input Gary, but one of the owners of Julio's Tours also promotes a certain restaurant on Las Gatas beach who's blatant history of padding people's bills, including mine, giives me good reason to avoid those businesses. I guess you could call it guilt by association.

We did the sunset cruise last year and had a good time. My husband wanted to do it again so I have already made reservations. The margarita was terrible but the beer was good! They give you a small plate of food, nothing to write home about, but we had a good time. They will pick you up at your hotel in Ixtapa, not sure about Zihua. We just walked over since we were close enough. I think it depends on who is on board as to what kind of trip you have. Ours was pretty mellow, but I've heard other people say they had a very loud rowdy bunch from Ixtapa.
