Default Best Shore excursions in Acapulco, Ixtapa, Manzanillo

DW and I are cruising for the first time out of San Diego (both previous cruises on Conquest). Anyone care to share their favorite shore excursions on the Mexican Riviera ( Acapulco, Ixtapa, Manzanillo ). Thanks so much....

My favorite in Acapulco is the Princess Hotel - where Howard Hughes was living until he died. Beautiful grounds, fantastic beach. Out of the bay, requires a taxi ride.

Mazatlan - I don't have one. Its been years since I have been there.

We sail down there for Mike's golf cruises. He says they're great.

Acapulco's cliff divers is a good show. We did it at night because Mike was golfing during the day. It was alot cooler weather-wise, and the diver's carry torches, and the cliff's were lit up.

In Cabo, the dolphin swim is very fun and worth the expense.

In April, I will take the seal lion swim in Puerta Vallarta, and parasailing in Cabo.

Sorry I can't help with the other ports. I was sick--not Noro--so I stayed on the ship.
