    Malpelo is by far the best value in terms of the major big animal destinations. We can get a rate of under $100 per night at Intercontinental Cali where they transfer you to Buenaventura to join the boat. Nightly cost is about $560 per night - compared with GPS with some boats almost twice that and Socorro at a similar rates from $500 to $600 per night, and Cocos similar rates from $550 to $645 per night. Those rates are based on twin share and you can get your own ensuite cabin on Ferox. Plus you are the ONLY divers there - exclusivity has a high value in my book.

    Just wanted to dive in Gorgona (https://goo.gl/maps/htBv1xXCwLrpvn2w6), with MS Maria Patricia. Boat in bad conditions now, but enough to go there.

    I have to correct my original sentence :
    If you really want to see Malpelo, be prepared to pay.
    Or else, for the same money, go 3 times to Maldives ...


    I think that Ferox has, compared to other similar boats with similar marketing targets (customers) in the triangle Malpelo - Cocos - Galapagos, a price in the mid-range.

    Hotels, food and traveling is not very expensive in Colombia, again it depends on the type of customers you are targeting.
