After cycling through Baja California, I then took the ferry between La Paz and Mazatlan in Mexico. Here's my travel blog post about the ferry journey to Mazatlan.
La Paz to Mazatlan Ferry
(Blog post written Dec 14 2009 – Bike Touring Diaries Alaska to Argentina)
After a breakfast at my favourite restaurant (25 pesos – bargain!), I got my stuff together and loaded up my bike.
The ride to Pichilingue, where the ferry leaves from, was only 10 miles and non-descript. Pichilingue itself consist of only the ferry terminal/docks and a few eating places.
There was a choice of two companies to use – Bajaferries and TMC.
Although TMC is normally for trucks and cargo shipping, they were quite willing to take my bicycle and me, and at 800 pesos, it was almost half the price of Bajaferries.
Taking a bicycle on the ferry to Mazatlan
I had to wait a bit until 14.30 when I loaded, and once on board, I propped my bike up against the side of the top cargo deck.
The ferry facilities were pretty basic, with a lounge area with airline style seats, and a dining room.
Two meal tickets were included in the price which made me happy! Sleep wasn’t too bad stretched out over three or four seats, despite the snoring from some of the drivers!
Soon, my cycling adventure would continue on the mainland of Mexico!
