From sun-soaked beaches, dancers in colorful costumes accompanied by mariachi bands, and delicious culinary fare, a cruise to Mexico always seems to be a festive occasion, especially with a Margarita or Corona in hand.
For California and neighboring states, the western coast of Mexico is a convenient, year-around destination for popular Mexican Riviera cruises, departing from Los Angeles or San Diego. The itineraries are also attractive to international visitors* interested in extending their U.S. holiday with a Mexico a cruise vacation.
