Default Phone calls usage in mexico

I am considering buying a phone card so I can call home when I reach the ports of Pt. Vallarta, Maxatlan and Cabo San Lucas. (Ii'm on a princess cruise) When I reviewed ATT's web site, they indicated I have to call from public phones marked Ladatel. Can anyone let me know if this type of phone is common, or is there a recommended company that is more appropriate for these ports.

Thanks

They are VERY common in P.V. In fact they are on most corners in the downtown area. You should have no problem. There are also many internet cafes around town too.

there are more internet cafes in PV than....tourists. ahahaha it seems they are on ever corenr and they are very cheap....
you can also buy phone cards down there. I got a few for like, 5-10 bucks for 10 minutes or 20 minutes...something like that.
if you are going to be at a resort. DO NOT USE THEIR CYBER CAFES AS THEY EXPLOIT THE "RICH AMERICAN" AND CHARGE AN ARM AND BOTH LEGS. down town, the cyber cafes are cheap, like a buck for 30 minutes......something like that.
have fun.

Ladatels are also easy to find in Cabo. Phone cards are definitely the cheapest way to call home....it's easy after you do it a time or two..lol!
Bonvoyage!

Got to agree

Blue Bay hotels charge twice as much in Cancun as the little guys across the street and have slower computers too
