Cruising Guide

Mexican Riviera



As the fourth most popular cruise destination in the world, the Mexican Riviera is rapidly building a reputation as an alternative to the Caribbean. Cruises ranging from three to eight days take travellers to ports such as Acapulco, Monterrey and Cabo San Lucas. A year-round destination with balmy temperatures, the Mexican Riviera stretches for hundreds of miles along the Pacific Ocean. The majority of Mexican Riviera cruises depart from Los Angeles, although there are some sailings from San Diego and San Francisco.

“Mexico is my favourite sun destination and I also love to cruise, so any itinerary that includes ports along the Mexican Riviera combines the best of both worlds for me. You’ll love such seafront towns as Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, where you can enjoy wonderful shore excursions like deep sea fishing, golf and hiking. Heaven!”
