Carnival Cruises to Mexico

East Coast or West Coast? That’s a decision you have to make when considering one of Carnival Cruises’ Mexican trips.

Offering a different look at North America, Carnival’s vacations present two experiences: the Riviera itinerary bordering the Pacific Ocean, and east on the Caribbean. With each, however, you’ll spend time in the sun and surf, close to the beach but within distance of Mayan ruins to explore, culture to experience, and foods to taste.

Traveling Options

As one of Carnival’s closest trips to the United States, ships may spend just two nights at sea. Vessels depart from Los Angeles or various cruise ports in the South, depending upon which itinerary you choose, and then proceed down the coast.

Three vessels offer Carnival’s “Fun Ship” experience: • Carnival Imagination • Carnival Inspiration • Carnival Miracle

Popular Ports

While Carnival’s Mexican itineraries may be brief or long, depending on your time at sea, you may see the following ports:

Cabo San Lucas: On the water or on land? This Baja California location, right at the tip of the long peninsula, essentially offers something for everyone. Stay on the ground with its many golf courses, deserts for ATV rides, and mountains perfect for exploring, or spend some time in the waters of the Pacific and Sea of Cortez.

And with its well-known El Arco rock, why wouldn’t you? The location presents the perfect setting for kayaking, fishing, or scuba diving to see whale sharks.

Costa Maya: This Caribbean port lets you into the view under the surface and into Mexico’s history on land. When you stay by the beach, consider swimming or snorkeling to see dolphins, colorful angelfish, and coral reefs, especially at the village of Xcalak. Or venture farther into the land to see Mayan Pyramids and the Lake of Seven Colors.

Cozumel: Another Caribbean port, Cozumel sits near coral reefs in the ocean and San Miguel Chankanaab National Park on land. As with many Caribbean ports, be sure to spend some time by the ocean to swim with dolphins, scuba dive, or snorkel.

Ensenada: Mexico’s seaside getaway isn’t just a port for exploring the ocean – it’s well-known for its culinary delights. After kayaking at Punta Banda or seeing the La Bufadora sea spouts, get an appetite for local oysters and merlot. The port further offers a chance to go shopping for silver jewelry and handmade pottery.

Progreso: This Yucatan location is known as the Emerald Coast. During your visit, you’ll spot many flamingos while exploring the area’s pyramids at Uxmal, shopping for handmade crafts, or going whale-watching in the ocean.
