When you arrive you go through a gate, then go to your right. You’ll be waved through for an inspection of your vehicle and proof that you have your vehicle permit. Once through, continue straight to the workers in the red vests. They will get your info on the car, your name, etc., then measure your vehicle. They record all of the info on a slip of paper, hand it back to you and then you park your car near the small TMC building on the right. Take your slip in the TMC building and pay the fee. You’ll get your ticket for the ferry, dinner and breakfast meal tickets and all kinds of receipts. We waited for all the trucks to load up, then it was the tourists’ vehicles turn. We drove to the top of the ferry, did a 180 and parked.
COSTS & RESERVATIONS
We did not need a reservation, but it’s not a bad idea. Below are phone numbers and e mail addresses to contact for reservsations or other questions. Costs for vehicles and passengers is on the right.
We have a 20 foot length van. It’s 9 feet tall, but, the height does not matter because you are going to be traveling on the top deck. So the costs for the vehicles comes down to the length.
Our van is right at 6 meters, 1 driver, 1 passenger, 1 good dog (free). So, Tourist vehicle: with driver $3600 pesos + Passenger $1197 pesos = $4797 pesos. ($250 usd roughly) Not too bad considering gas prices and time to drive all the way around.
