Default Mexican Riviera in October

How will the weather be in October. I hear the water is cold for snorkling.

showcat,

How will the weather be in October.

It should be fine. The first day and the last day, when you are in transit between either San Diego or Los Angeles and the tropics, are prone to be on the cool side if you go out on deck. All of the ports of call are in the tropics.

I hear the water is cold for snorkling.

That should not be a problem. Again, all of the ports of call are in the tropics. In several cruises to the Mexican Riviera, I have encountered cool water only once -- and that was at Cabo San Lucas when "La Nina" (a pocket of abnormally cold water in the Pacific) was in full bloom. Even on that trip, the water was fine once you got into it. It was just the initial process of getting wet that was more difficult than normal.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.

I have heard the water is cool by comparison to the Caribbean, but I don't have any experience with that. It is warm by California standards, so it depends on what you are used to. We cruised the Mexican Riviera last October 16-23, and it was HOT, HOT, HOT in port. We had a great time, but were definitely glad to get back on ship everyday and jump into the pool. It was raining the day we sailed from Los Angeles, so we were a little bummed because not too many people were on deck for the sail away. And the last sea day was pretty cool and cloudy, so they had the parade of flags in the atrium. But we were so worn out by then we were more than happy just to sit in the solarium and read!

We have sailed many times in October, but always toward the end and into November. Yep, it was pretty hot -- about 88-90 in PV. Best weather we ever had was the first of February. But either way, always fun.

Newt,

Has anyone been to Cabo San Lucas in February?

Yes. This year, in fact.

What is the weather like then?

Tropical. Daytime temperatures were arounnd 30 degrees (Celsius; that's how they report it there).

The water was a tad on the cool side, but fine once you got into it, probably due to la nina. I would guess that it was about twenty degrees.

Norm.

We were there last February and the weather was great. We have cruised the Mexican Riviera 3 times in the February/March time frame and always had weather 70 - 80 F.
