28 Dec 2024 Day-at-Sea

29 Dec 2024 Cabo San Lucas, México Arrive: 12:30 PM Depart 8 PM. As Baja California's most electrifying destination and a playground for the rich and famous, Cabo San Lucas delivers a dreamy set of tropical wonders. Unspoiled shores like Lover's Beach paint the town in brushes of turquoise and white. Fertile ocean waters supply the seafood for fish tacos with adobo sauce. Cruise to Cabo San Lucas and head to Desert Park Natural Reserve to behold expansive cream-colored desert scenery. See soaring natural rock formations plunge into the Sea of Cortez at Land's End. Stride along a happy crowd while sipping on a margarita, taking in the impressive views and doing a little dancing while you're at it. Natural Monument of El Arco ("The Arch") is reachable by water taxi, will enchant you. Here, impressive arches naturally formed from rock frame white-sand beaches and crystal-blue waters. Snap a pic of the arch, and catch a glimpse of the sea lions that often pop up to get some sun on the rock formations. This same water taxi can also drop you off at romantic Playa del Amor — Lover's Beach. Watch the clear waters of the Sea of Cortez crash against the massive eroded granite rocks that rest on the shore. Take a break from the sun and stroll through the old town of San Jose del Cabo, a quick 30 minutes away from Cabo San Lucas. The town's Gallery District is full of small studios where local artists sell their work. Bring your camera to capture the enchanting Spanish colonial architecture of this historic town.

30 Dec 2024 Mazatlán, Mexico Arrive: 8 AM Depart: 6 PM. Cradled by mountains and lapped by the cerulean waters of the Pacific, Mazatlán is one of the most interesting resort towns on Mexico’s wild western coast. If you’re planning a cruise to Mazatlán, you’re in for a real treat. You’ll find it all here — stately plazas and shaded streets lined with restored landmarks in the city’s Centro Historico. Beautiful white-sand beaches dotted with lively cafes, bars and plenty of space to sunbathe. And endless ways to dive into the region’s unique history, which is filled with Spanish conquistadors, buccaneer battles, and Gold Rush-era prospectors. Two of the most popular beaches are Playa Olas Altas and lively Playa las Gaviotas. “Pueblos Mágicos,” or “Magic Towns,” are recognized by the Mexican government for their beauty, history and cultural significance. Mazatlán is located just an hour drive from two of them — charming El Rosario and scenic El Quelite. Both are home to picturesque cobblestone streets, traditional architecture, authentic cuisine and thriving communities of local artisans. Another great day trip from Mazatlán is a visit to Isla de la Piedra, known in English as Stone Island. A five-minute ferry ride away, this tranquil spot is actually a peninsula. It offers endless outdoor adventures — like horseback riding and some of the region’s nicest beaches. The restaurants here are also amazing, located in rustic palapas with views of the ocean. One of the best things to do in Mazatlán is to try the local cuisine. The city is known for its authentic Sinaloan dishes, which include hearty stews made in a caldo, or big pot, and fresh-caught seafood. If you’re on a quest for the perfect souvenirs to bring home from Mazatlán, head to the Arts and Crafts Center in the Zona Dorada. The center offers a huge selection of products and souvenirs handcrafted by local artisans — from pottery and textiles to woodcarvings.

31 Dec 2024 Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Arrive 8 AM Depart 6 PM - Puerto Vallarta — or simply Vallarta, as the locals call it — is a romantic's dream, with its cobblestone lanes, beachfront eateries and an old city center filled to the brim with charming boutiques. Jump onboard a Puerto Vallarta cruise and head to the shimmering waters of Yelapa beach for a dream-like escapade, or pop into Cafe des Artistes for a romantic meal in a candlelit garden. Check out the landmark Los Arcos, a set of Roman-style arches by the waterfront, for a perfect photo of Vallarta's official symbol. For a break from the city life, head to Jardin Botanica Vallarta and enjoy the delightful scents of orchids and bromeliads and the refreshing waters of a boulder-filled river. Head to the town's markets of Mercado Municipal Rio Cuale or Pueblo Viejo Mercado de Artesanias, where you'll find shops brimming with the famous pottery and jewelry. Don't leave without heading to a street vendor for freshly baked beach pies (coconut is quite popular), which go for just $2 per slice. AFTERNOON WITH THE ANCIENTS Just outside the village La Chloe is the Xihuacan Museum and Archeological Site, a 3,000-year-old site is believed to have been a cultural ceremonial center used by different tribes, including the Aztecs, Toltecs, Zapotecas and Olmecs. Here, you can see a wealth of ancient artifacts, including vases, figurines and jewelry.
