Default Mexico from San Diego

WE are travelling on Celebrity Mercury in October to various Mexican ports. Does anyone have any suggestions relative to excursions through the Cruise Line OR would we be better just making our way around on our own. We would like to see more than just beaches - although I am not sure what if any historical or other sites are worth seeing. In any case, even if we were to take excursions we would likely stick to half days so that we have at least some free time to explore OR simply go back to the ship and relax.

Mikey,

I always say that the best walk-around port is Puerto Vallarta -- just gorgeous, as is Cabo (but very Americanized).

In Cabo, you can take the glass bottom boat out to Los Arcos and see the rock formations up close -- $12 a person when booked on the pier.

Mazatlan we have done Randi's Happy Horses, which was a great adventure for all ages. I just wrote a story about it which is under news features. We've also done the city tour, booked in the cruise terminal with Marlin Tours, -- that was $15 and great for sight-seeing. Finally, we did a private tour out to Concordia and another small town, which was super interesting and fun through Frank at www.mazatlan-tours.com. I heard his web site is down, but here is direct email: fkole2000@hotmail.com.

Acapulco and Ixtapa/Zijuatenjo are great ports. We did the cultural tour in Acapulco which was very interesting and lots of good sight-seeing. In Zijuatenejo, we just went on our own and enjoyed the scenery (beautiful port) and had lunch and drinks by the bay in the fishing village.

Here are some photos:

On bars, it's been so long since we would go all that often, but Rich's is a good dance club on University.
