Hola and bienvenido! Full of culture, history and energy, Mexico’s western coastline is a popular cruise destination, with cruise lines such as Carnival Cruise Lines, and Princess Cruises offering itineraries. Also known as the Mexican Riviera, this stretch of coast boasts a collection of cities, lagoons, beaches, rock formations and more. Looking for a family-friendly getaway? The team at Cruiseabout have the perfect solution: a 14-night Los Angeles and Mexican Riviera journey jam-packed with thrilling activities. Below, we’ve shone a spotlight on the amazing destinations you’ll visit as part of your cruise adventure.

Los Angeles

The City of Angels is undoubtedly one of the most famous cities worldwide. Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Malibu, Beverley Hills – these are just a few of the attractions that are waiting to be explored. However, a family trip to LA wouldn’t be complete without a visit to magical Disneyland, Walt Disney’s original theme park. While here, hop on rides, be wowed by musical and theatrical performances, and say hi to your favourite characters from Cinderella and Mickey Mouse to Pluto and Tinkerbell.

Want even more family fun? With plenty of wow-factor, Universal Studios Hollywood is sure to be a spectacular outing for family members of all ages. The signature Universal Studios Tour attraction transports guests from movie set to movie set, providing fascinating insight into life behind the scenes. From Jaws and King Kong to Psycho and Desperate Housewives, there’s a world of movie magic to be discovered!

Cabo San Lucas

Known for its picture-perfect beaches, nightlife and a casual atmosphere, the resort city of Cabo San Lucas is the ideal holiday destination. Snorkel, swim or relax on the sun-soaked sands of beaches such as Santa Maria Beach and Chileno Beach. Take a boat ride to the Arch of Cabo San Lucas, otherwise known as El Arco. This distinctive rock formation is eye-catching and one of the most photographed locations in the area, so have your camera ready. Head to one of the city’s many restaurants and enjoy a seafood feast, along with a cocktail or two. Indulge with a shopping trip to the marina and pick up some souvenirs. The choices are endless.    

Puerto Vallarta

The fun in the sun continues in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. This Mexican beach resort city offers visitors a wide array of experiences. Whether you want to make the most of the surf and sea with aquatic activities, take in the sights by strolling along the vibrant 870-metre-long El Malecón boardwalk, explore charming Old Vallarta, or relax and be at one with nature at the Botanical Gardens of Vallarta, the whole family is sure to end their stay feeling refreshed and reenergised. For a truly special experience, head to the stunning Los Muertos Pier for sunset views and cool breezes.
