If you frequent National Parks you can get an annual pass that's good everywhere. I usually get about 3:1 with mine. Some years only 2:1

If you plan to visit Boquillas, I think they charge you $8 per person to be ferried across the river.  If you walk into town instead of ride (a horse, truck or burro) and don't buy any souvenirs or refreshments I think that is all you'll pay although you will have a guide attached that will be expecting a tip.

if you want to cross the river into Boquillas, bring your passport or port card. the people over there are very friendly and despite what you think, its safe over there. all the kids want to sell you stuff, a heads up, a few of the kids speak English VERY well.
also check the hours. the station closes at 5 pm i think. so you have to be back across before then, and its closed 2 days a week i think.

On our last trip through in January we paid for a boat ride, declined the guide, tipped Victor and walked into town.  Very relaxing.  You don't feel like you are being constantly watched and you don't feel like you are wasting anyone's time.  You can just siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii t.
