    I'm trying to find information about the boat trip from LP to the border. I am interested in obtaining info for either a 1 or 2 day trip. What days of the week do they leave and any idea of costs etc

    some advice, take the slow boat. we took the fast boat from the border to LP and happy to be alive. it broke down and slow boat got there b4 us.

    friends of ours got the slow boat and enjoyed it but bring a cussion either way as your ass will be sore as hell!

    take food - some of the boats don't have any, also (and I'm sure it's only me that's this silly) don't leave anything of value in you backpack in the cargo hold even if you have locked it.
