Mexico Travel Advice?

August 24, 2007 at 7:10 pm (Travel)

A couple of years ago hubby and I went on one of those 3 day cruises from LA to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico on Carnival Cruise Lines. I swore I would never cruise again.

We don’t drink, we don’t gamble and we’re particular about our entertainment – so that ruled out about 90% of the on-ship activities. I would have been perfectly content to sit on a chaise in the sun, read a book and work on my tan, except in order to keep from freezing I would have been wearing jeans and a jacket which kind of negates the whole point.

Mark was content to play NBA 2005 on his laptop for hours on end in our tiny cabin but I was ill-prepared w/ not enough reading material and I was bored.

Since that time hubby occasionally emails me cruise deals that sound interesting. And I reply back with some snarky comment like "Um, why would I want to do that again?"

But then a couple months ago we had the chance to get away and we went to our old standby – San Diego/Orange County – and we were bored. We decided we need to vacation elsewhere.

All that to say that we are giving cruising one more try – this time on Norwegian which has the freestyle cruising where you can eat wherever, whenever, etc. It’s 8 days in Mexico with stops in Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa and Cabo San Lucas.

So what I’m wondering is if anyone has any suggestions on must-see activities at those places. NCL has lots of shore excursions that sound interesting but I’m curious to hear ideas from other people.

    I’ve never been to Mexico, and I’ve never been on a cruise before, so sorry I’m not much help.
