In P. Vallarta the Krystal Hotel - close to the cruise-terminal - is free for cruise-passengers. Show them your cruise-cards at the entrance.
Some other hotels - but farther away in Nuevo vallarta - like Westin and marriott allow passengers but you have to pay a fee.
Thanks for the advice, I will check out the Krystal Hotel. I think the media is just making me paranoid for nothing.
Do you know any good beaches for swimming in Mazatlan?
