Estero Beach Resort from Cruise Ship

So we are cruising in August and really want to take the Estero Beach Resort excursion but am wondering if we are better off doing it on our own vs paying $55/person. I read somewhere we can uber there and get a $10 day pass. Has anyone done this?? Thanks in advance!!

Unless they're giving you a bunch of credit at the restaurant, $55 is too much.

An Uber will cost you about 120-140 pesos each way, or about US$7. The day pass is US$10 (or 200 pesos). Since everyone rides free in an Uber, two people can get there for $34 instead of $110. I'd say do it on your own. Just make absolutely sure you have data service in Mexico before you commit to it.

If you get stuck, the hotel will call you a cab, but if there isn't one right there you will have to wait 20 minutes or so for one to come from downtown.

It's only my opinion, but you might want to google the resort and check out some pictures. It isn't "all that resortie."

If you do, you'll see that most photos are of the pool, the rooms, or the food. Very few are of the beach, and there's a reason for that.

I already have and while I appreciate your opinion, we’ve pretty much decided we would like to go there. Most of the reviews are good and we want to take the kids jet skiing which I read is nearby.

It should be nice and warm in August, so Uber, as TravellerCA is the best way, especially if you are interested in Jet Skiing.

Have a great time!
