Imagine...Stunning scenery, laid back culture, fabulous beaches and a rich variety of art are just a few tasters of what awaits along the beautiful Mexican Riviera. Mexico has thousands of miles of Pacific coast, stretching from its north-western border with California to its southern border with Guatemala.. Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta gained international fame in the 1960s, when celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and John Wayne made it their seaside escape.
From Beverly Hills to Acapulco Bay, witness the famous cliff divers of legendary Acapulco, explore romantic towns and fishing villages, and warm to the tropical climate, colourful Mexican culture and that irrepressible feeling of fiesta in the air.
Cruising out of and returning to Los Angeles or San Diego, these cruises are all about fun, beaches and watersports. Cruises call at Ensenada, just below the Mexican border, the more sophisticated Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan for the shopping, the resort of Puerto Vallarta and the beaches of Zihuatenejo. Turnaround usually occurs at Acapulco, famous for beaches, cliff divers and nightlife.
