mexican riviera cruisePlanning a Mexican Riviera Cruise? Be sure to see these five exceptional destinations!

Mexican Riviera cruises have become some of the most popular year-round cruise destinations in recent years. Travelers are drawn to the warm, sunny beaches, friendly population, and historic wonders located on Mexico’s Gold Coast. Most Mexican Riviera cruises include stops in Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán, and Acapulco.  If you are wondering what to do on a Mexican Riviera cruise, we have some “must-see” destinations you won’t want to miss!

1. Acapulco’s Cliff Divers

If your Mexican Riviera cruise takes you to Acapulco, be sure to head to the La Quebrada cliffs. They offer the best viewing location to watch the world-famous Acapulco cliff divers as they plunge fearlessly more than 100 feet into the ocean.

Happy Traveler Comment
Hi Rachel. Thank you so much for making such great arrangements for our NCL Pearl cruise. Everything went so smoothly for boarding the ship in Miami, all the in-between happenings, and departing from the ship at the end of our cruise. We really appreciated your picking our cabin for convenience. It was about 10 steps from the elevators. The NCL Pearl is a beautiful ship and our cabin was tops. We had great service and met a lot of new people. Thank you again for your great reservation services. I'll be happy to recommend you to any of my friends who are looking to do a cruise. — Marcie

2. Living Coral Reef

Mexican Riviera cruises that visit Cabo San Lucas offer the chance to see the only living coral reef on the west coast of North America. You can see more than 350 species of marine animals and plants if you go snorkeling or scuba diving at Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park, which is home to three types of coral reef. The dive site is located about an hour and a half from Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez.
