NDW: I can help a little with the snorkeling. Your best bets in Cabo San Lucas are Bahia Chileno and Playa Santa Maria. The closest to the tender landing would be Lover's Beach (short water taxi ride), but this location is only fair at best. Chileno and Santa Maria are located along the corridor, about 5 miles outside of town. Los Arcos in Puerto Vallarta can be "iffy" and certainly was that when we tried it (wife also took a few stings from jellyfish). Have not snorkeled in Mazatlan but heard Deer and Stone Island are two locations which can also be "iffy". We will be trying Stone Island in October. Have snorkeled on Isla Ixtapa, a small island that is a short water taxi ride away from Ixtapa. This location was fairly good. No help for Manzanillo or Acapulco. The best snorkeling on your itinerary, IMO, will probably be in Cabo San Lucas. Having said that, it won't be anything close to snorkeling Hawaii, the Caribbean, Tahiti or the Galapagos.
