We took the ferry from La Paz to Topolobambo, and then back again. On the way there it was pretty uneventful. We rented a cabin so we could sleep and shower. At one point, I went down to the main cabin, and it was full of people drinking and listening to loud music. Made me glad we had a cabin.... More

We left with 1.5 hour delay and arrived with 3.15 have delay. The cabin though was nice, unfortunately they waked us when the arrival was scheduled in 30 min, but the ferry was delayed another 1.75 h which would have been nice to be able to sleep.

It's a good experience but they need more organization, you loose a lot of time waiting to board and to leave the ferry when you arrive.

The ship is in good maintenance, but the cooling system was not functioning correctly nor blowing cold air. The de-boarding process takes much too long; it took close to 90 mins to to vacate less than 100 passengers.

A very pleasant surprise was how new the boat is. From La Paz to Mazatlan was to take until 9.00 am next morning. Getting on was no problem as not that many passengers. The drinks were cheap and good. Pity about the food. Dinner included in the ticket was as dry as could be. Basic cabin with 4 beds was... More

Very clean - we booked a cabin with shower - slept so very well, dinner is included you just have to queue for your food, but only takes minutes. It takes longer to go through th Customs and Immigration checks and that is not Baja Ferries' fault!!

We had a good experience with Baja Ferries. Food was ok, and sleeping in the TV-room was good as well. Don't expect luxury at the TV-room, but we had enough space to lie down. I don't know the quality of the rooms because they where all booked when we got our tickets.

We reserved passage for two people, our SUV and a cabin on the Baja Ferry from Mazatlán to La Paz because we wanted to drive home to Canada via the Baja. Booking on line was relatively easy and the cost, $380 Cndn, reasonable. We received an email a week in advance saying the sailing had been cancelled due to a... More

We booked passage from La Paz to Mazatlán at the terminal about two weeks before we wanted to cross on our way by car to Ajijic. We arrived at the terminal on the day of our voyage only to be told the ship was having maintenance all week so all trips to Mazatlán were cancelled. Would have thought they would... More

This was the most complicated and stressful ferry ride ever. Bureaucratic procedure and security concerns trump passenger comfort and convenience every time. However, the crossing itself, the comfort of cabanas and the other facilities were satisfactory. (A little real food for breakfast would have gone well with the morning coffee.) A few bilingual signs helping the inexperienced traveller through a... More
