Considering the Mexico Princess cruise? Well, consider this, Mexico offers a kaleidoscope of adventures: exploring colonial architecture, horseback riding in the Sierra Madres, amazing snorkeling to mariachi music, breathtaking cliff divers in Acapulco, margaritas on the beach, and sun-splashed fun on Mexico's powdery beaches. The Mexican Riviera is filled with extraordinary locations and rich experiences. Mexico features snow-capped mountains, volcanic peaks, tropical rain forests, and internationally famous beaches, what more can you ask for?

The Mexican Riviera, famous for its immaculate beaches set against stunning coves, cliffs, and lush jungle landscape, is rapidly building a reputation as a Caribbean alternative, and it is the fourth most popular cruise ship vacations destination in the world. The reason for this is that Mexico has thousands of miles of Pacific coast, stretching from its southern border with Guatemala, to its northwestern border with California. During the 1970s, The Mexican government insistently encouraged the building of resorts along the Pacific coast, dubbing this long stretch as "The Costa de Oro," or "Gold Coast" or to the cruise industry, "the Mexican Riviera."

A Taste of What the Mexico Princess Cruise Can Offer You

Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas are some of the traditional ports of call in a Mexico Princess cruise. Puerto Vallarta is known for its jungle beaches, "old world" charm, quaint cobblestone streets, and dynamic nightlife. Acapulco is the supreme resort town, but its main attraction is the cliff diving at La Quebrada. Cabo San Lucas is a party town, but it also offers a spectacular juxtaposition of desert, sea, and mountains, and aside from enjoying the abundant wildlife and beautiful scenery, water sports, such as scuba diving, parasailing, and snorkeling, are popular activities.

Temperatures remain balmy (in the 70s and 80s) most of the year, making the Mexican Riviera a year-round destination. Hot (90's) and humid August and September can be a little unpleasant, but that's just two months out of the year. Itineraries usually focus from September through May, but generally, Mexico is always a pleasant place to travel to. Ultimately, the variety of activities that each city has to offer, and the temperate weather are key reasons why cruise vacations to Mexico are so popular.
