The best shore excursions in Mexico

Mexico is an incredible cruise destination, whether you see it from the balmy Gulf Coast shoreline or the Mexican Riviera on the Pacific.  Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive long weekend or a way to unwind in the highest luxury, there’s a ship, a cabin, and an itinerary for you.

But what’s best about cruising to Mexico is the array of adventures that await you onshore.  Here’s a handful of our top-rated shore excursions as determined by happy travelers and in-the-know agents:

  1. Scuba Diving or Snorkeling
    Can’t really call this one a “shore” excursion since you’ll be exploring the deep blue sea with an expert guide.  No matter your level of experience, the warm water filled with an array of marine life will always have something new to offer.
  1. Whale Watching
    Join a team of marine biologists to learn about the majestic humpback whales that frequent Banderas bay as part of their migration path.  You’ll be able to use the special audio equipment to listen to the whales’ songs and assist with an ongoing research project. 
  1. Touring the Mayan Ruins
    For a little cultural expedition, visit Chichen Itza, the iconic World Heritage site and the symbol of the mysterious Mayan culture. Or visit Tulum, the lesser-known but still awe-inspiring ancient walled city.  Both are a busride inland from Cozumel. 
  1. Tequila tasting
    Like Champagne and Parmesan cheese, Tequila is named after the city in which it’s produced, in the highlands of the western Mexican state of Jalisco.  Take a tour of a Tequila distillery where you’ll learn the steps of production, from agave harvesting to final sip.
  1. Visiting a handicraft market
    After short drive inland
    to Huatulco, you’ll get a chance to watch artisans at work crafting the region’s famous pottery, carvings, and rugs as well as taste authentic Mexican delicacies as mole and quesillo.  This is a great opportunity to pick up a unique souvenir that also supports the local economy.
