Go there once, you'll be there twice...

So, Patrick and I just couldn't stay away (We found Cabo in October and loved, loved, loved it) and we are in the process of booking a cruise out of LA that sails to Cabo and lingers there for 2 days and we're dragging along all 4 of our youngest kids. My question is ~ would it be cheaper to book our activities A) through the cruiseline B) via internet before we leave or C) once we arrive on Cabo's sweet sand?

P.S. I bet I say at least once a week, "I miss Cabo..."

It is definitely cheaper to book your activities on your own instead of through the cruiseline. The main argument I hear from people who book through the cruiseline is a fear of somehow getting back late and missing the ship if you book independently. From my experience booking independently, the tour providers are very experienced working with cruise passengers and will do anything to prevent you from missing your ship. Believe me, they don't want the bad press online or unhappy passengers.

To be safe, plan to be back 2 hours before the last tender. If everything is on time, then you've got time to explore. If you run late, you've got some built in cushion.

Since you've been there before, I would assume that you already have a general idea of what you want to do. If not, I find it helpful to take a look at what the cruiseline is offering in order to see what is available in each port. For Cabo, I would pick what I want to do, order vouchers from www.loscabosguide.com and then book the tours independently. For your other port (I'm guessing Puerto Vallarta) check out either the forum here or on www.cruisecritic.com

Have fun!
