Booking excursions

Is it true that it is not necessary to book excursions through your hotel and that you can book things in San Pedro and save money?

There are a lot of options for booking excursions. No need to book through your hotel if you don't want to. We are booking all our snorkle trips, diving, etc on our own.

You can often save money booking on your own. Hotels/resorts often get commissions from tour operators, eliminate the middle man and you'll save some money.

I've also seen 10% discounts for cash. Worth a trip to the ATM for all day excursions.

Some operators also give discounts for multiple excursions.

The flip side is it's easy to book with your hotel. Just pay one bill at the end.

In some cases, you can save quite a bit by doing it on your own. I've asked for a small discount when using cash, and gotten it a few times. And, if you have 6 or more people, you can also talk it down some more.

Good luck!
