The best cruises to Mexico suit the world's most demanding travelers. Sun, sand, water ¬ what more could you ask for? By day, explore the Mayan ruins, walk among ancient temples and pyramids; wonder at the magical quality of the light, clear and warm against whitewashed walls; be dazzled by the bright colors: gold and red set against deep turquoise waters. By night, dine on exquisite regional cuisine; hear the strumming of flamenco guitar and the click of the dancer's castanet.
At local markets you will find magnificent handcrafts, like woodcarvings, weavings, and jewelry. If the beach is your thing, then Mexico has much to offer: swimming, windsurfing, snorkeling and kayaking. Clean white sand, clear skies, and cool tropical breezes will fill your days, and amazing sunsets will mark the beginning of each memorable night. Take a cruise to Mexico beach resorts. They are: Cancun, an island and resort town just off the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo; Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, and Mazatlon, all resort cities on Mexico's Pacific coast; and Los Cabos, a sport fishing and resort center at the end of the peninsula of Baja California in the state of Baja California Sur.
Twelve miles off the southern coast of the Yucutan Peninsula, Cozumel is one of most popular cruises to Mexico. This destination is the gem of the Mexican Caribbean. A world-renowned diving location, Cozumel features crystal clear waters and coral reefs filled with teeming tropical fish and other spectacular sights. Here you can travel to the ruins at Tulum, and take a guided tour of the El Castillo pyramid atop a forty-foot cliff.
The Mexican Riviera is filled with rich experiences, fantastic locations and fun in the sun. The cliff divers in Acapulco will leave you breathless until you're ready to take a break on the powdery beaches of Puerto Vallarta. Water enthusiasts will thrive in Cabo San Lucas while those who like to shop and explore will be at home in Ixtapa and Mazatlan. You can experience the true Mexican Riviera with Princess cruises to Mexico. Situated on Acapulco Bay, Acapulco is the most famous beach resort in Mexico.
The seaside promenade runs along the beaches. There is a square in the center of the romantic Old Acapulco, as well as the famous Hotel Flamingo where movie stars of the 1950's went for holidays. This fashionable resort community offers snorkeling, para-sailing, water-skiing, and tennis. Don't forget to sample the traditional local cuisine; enjoy some tamales (filled pastries), posole (a stew) or ceviche (fish marinated in lemon juice).
Aboard the 22-guest Safari Quest, the stories you share of cruises to Mexico become the memories of a lifetime. You'll linger on deck as pods of dolphins leap from the water beside you, and laser sailboats are lowered into the water for your afternoon of leisure. Explore the vast oasis and the beauty of the Mexican Riviera at a leisurely pace. From the view of your Celebrity stateroom, marvel at the vistas, the beaches, and the colors of the sun. As you make your way along this extraordinary coastline, the experiences you'll have will enhance an already perfect vacation.
