Default Mexican Riviera Ocean Color

Would anyone tell me what color the ocean water is in the respective ports of mazatlan, puerto vallarta and cabo san lucas? Pictures online vary too much. I'm from Los Angeles and would not consider myself on vacation if the water looks the same as it does let's say at Venice Beach. This is for a late September cruise. I'm also going on a cruise to the Caribbean this New Year's Eve.

the Mexican Riveria is not the CARIBBEAN!!!!!!! I am from San Diego and have done Mexico (Puerto Vallerta, Mazatlan, & Cabo) and until I saw the waters in the Caribbean never new anything could be so many shades of beautiful blue, not to mention warm and clear and the marine life is amazing. You have soooooo much to look forward to. Katie

It's not clear like the Caribbean, but we snorkeled in Puerto Vallarta and there was visibility. You are fortunate to be able to go on both cruises in such a short amount of time. Have a fun time on BOTH cruises!!!!!!

Thanks Katenanna45 and Cali-croozer . The caribbean has ruined me! Hmm... at least there is some visibility in Puerto Vallarta and I've heard good things about Cabo. I'm going to focus on appreciating the best of all places!

I have been to both. Skip the snorkling in P.V. we were really disappointed. It just real murkey and the visability was low. The snorkling in Cabo was much improved. I couldnt believe the difference within a few days of eachother. Definitely save your snorkling money for Cabo. Nothing compares to the Caribbean. It is just spectacular there. The first cruise I went on was the mexican riviera and when I went to the caribbean I was just blown away how different it really was. Enjoy both cruises!

Green - Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. The clearest water in in Cabo. For the crystal clear blue water you need to go to Cancun and such.
