Park passes are required by CONANP to anchor and to go ashore at the islands of Espíritu Santo & Partida north of La Paz.
Yearly passes (passports) and day passes (bracelets) are available for purchase. You may be stopped by a Park Ranger and asked to show your pass. If you do not have one you may purchase one at that time. Everyone who is not a local citizen or permanent resident able to show a local voter’s ID card or drivers license are required to pay. La Paz residents are required to have a park pass for the parks outside the Espíritu Santo national Park.
The 2017 cost is 64 pesos per bracelet per day and 334 pesos for the annual passport. The handicapped and children under 6 years old are not required to obtain a pass.
