Which Feburary sailing of the Spirit are you going on? A friend is taking me on the February 5 sailing to clebrate my birthday. It will be my 17th cruise, my second cruise to Acapulco but my first Carnival cruise.
I don't have any recommendations for "hot spots", but check out www.go2mexico.com
. I found lots of helpful information on my upcoming trip to Cancun in October.
