The Mexican Riviera whales and exotic jungles further south. There are three disitnct areas to this region - the busy fun cruises of the Mexican Riviera and the expedition cruises that whale watch around the Sea of Cortez or explore the jungles of Costa Rica and Panama.

Mexican Riviera

Cruising out of and returning to Los Angeles or San Diego, these cruises are all about fun, beaches and watersports. Attracting younger passengers, 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.

Sea of Cortez, Costa Rica & Panama

Most cruise ships just pass down the coast to the famous resorts but there are adventure cruises that will follow the whales off the coast of Baja California and explore the tiny islands of the sheltered Sea of Cortez. Further south the exotic jungles and offshore islands of Costa Rica and Panama will provide a wealth of wildlife.

When to go...

The Mexican Riviera is a year round destination but the most popular time is November to March when temperatures are lower than the summer months.
