I'm going on a Panama Canal cruise in a few weeks. I'm wondering about wifi in the ports we're visiting: cabo san Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, huatulco, puerto Chiapas. Is it common in these ports for there to be free or even not free wifi? I'm just wondering if I can avoid purchasing a roaming package.Cabo and Puerto Vallarta did not have free WiFi unless near a Walmart or Starbucks. Are you trying to avoid paying anything at all or just limiting your expenditures.? If you have an unlocked GSM phone, Movistar Sim cards are about 3 bucks a day. If you have T-Mobile you can roam for free. In Puerto Vallarta, I purchased an at&t Sim card from the Walmart and it had unlimited talk and text and and roaming with 600mb of data, all for one month and for about 25 bucks.
