Cruises to Mexico and Central America are among the most affordable in the
market and may visit ports in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez or in the
Caribbean Sea. Explore cities in destinations such as the Mexican Riviera,
Nicaragua and Costa Rica, as well as in the Yucatan region of Mexico, Belize,
Honduras and Guatemala.
Primarily departing from California, cruises on the Pacific side of this
region usually find drier weather and more mountainous terrain onshore.
Fishing, horseback riding on the beach, parasailing and many other sports
abound. Or, opt for a Mexico/Central America cruise that departs from Florida
or Gulf Coast ports like Galveston or New Orleans. You'll find a more humid
climate, lush vegetation and warm, crystal-clear waters for swimming,
snorkeling and scuba diving. A wide range of excursions are offered in
this area, from scuba diving and snorkeling in Roatan to zip-lining in
the jungle of Belize to hiking in Costa Rica's amazing national parks.
Tours of ancient Mayan ruins at Uxmal, Chichen Itza and Tulum are also
popular, and some Mexico/Central America cruises make stops near, or
traverse, the Panama Canal.
