So close, yet so deliciously far. Mexico might be right down there, but it exists in another world entirely. Mexico is a large country, comprised of many regions. The most well-known cities and regions are the Yucatan and its Mayan Riviera with Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun; sprawling Mexico City; the Mexican Riviera with Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, La Paz, Mazatlán, Zihuatanejo, and Manzanillo; and Baja Mexico with Cabo San Lucas.
Cruisers love Mexico for its delicious, sometimes spicy food, soulful Mariachi bands, and zest for life. Each port contributes its own distinct local flavor to the mix. An experience on Mexico’s Gold Coast may include lounging on the beach, kayaking a sandbar, exploring Mayan ruins or dancing in trendy nightclubs. Mazatlan offers a more traditional cultural experience, while Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas are especially accommodating to cruisers looking to shop or head to local restaurant and bars.
Whether your Mexico cruise style is west-coast Riviera with its Pacific charm, east-coast Caribbean and its island mojo, or perhaps Baja and its out-of-this-world coastal scenery, you’ll find Mexico central to a great vacation.
