The Mexican Riviera stretches thousands of miles down Mexico’s Pacific coast from the Californian border all the way to Guatemala. Mexican ports located on the Gulf of Mexico are visited by Western Caribbean cruises.
This cruise destination offers a range of experiences: from beaches and water-based activities, to cultural and historical towns. It is also a popular destination for art-lovers and foodies.
Itineraries range from short 3-night trips, to long 12 night trips. Mexico is sometimes included in Panama Canal itineraries.
An all-year destination, Mexico and surrounding areas are blessed by balmy weather throughout the year, though August and September can be hotter and more humid. Some cruise lines have ships based here all year while others base ships here for the September to April period before moving them to Alaska or Europe.
