3 am, sleepless, thinking of everything I have to do here in New York, but scheming to get back to Mexico. Someone reminded me today of the new ferry service to the Yucatan from Tampa, Florida. I have to drive down this time, so it's worth considering. Seems cheap enough: $65 one-way, plus $149 for the vehicle, plus $22 for the Mexican vehicle fee. Plus meals 62.50, port and security fees 33.50, US departure tax 3.00, Mexican immigration fee 20.00... well, I guess you do pay for the convenience. $355 one-way.
UPDATE: The ferry is not running anymore. Check the site below to see when it will resume. Please don't email me. That's all I know.
And here's the Mexican site which assigns you a reference number that you use to expedite taking your car into Mexico:Posted by Dave at December 16, 2002 03:15 AM
