Disney Cruise Line to the Mexican Riviera

The Mexican Pacific coast, also known as the Mexican Riviera, stretches down the Baja California peninsula and over the mainland. Bright cities and small towns by the beach give a glimpse into Mexican culture, while travelers visiting these areas have a chance to do numerous activities by the water, taste fresh seafood, and shop.

Disney Cruises takes travelers down this stretch of North America, with trips beginning in Los Angeles and lasting just a couple of days. It’s quick getaway with your family to the sun and surf, all while you experience Disney’s personal service and Character Greetings on board.

Making Plans

Rather than schedule hotels and transportation, just arrive in Los Angeles or San Diego to board the Disney Wonder.

This ship, introduced in 1999, adds the familiar combination of family entertainment in the Buena Vista Theater, exciting dining options, and Youth Clubs, complete with Disney characters on board for greetings.

As this cruise stays close to home, trips last two days or longer.


Cabo San Lucas: This city located right on the southern tip of Baja California captures Mexico with a landscape of cacti and its well-known rock formations. After you relax on white sandy beaches by the Pacific, try sports fishing – after all, the area is known as the billfish capital of the world. Or give any other numerous outdoor activities here a shot: golfing, sailing, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, whale watching, and nature hikes. Once you’re done, explore the area’s nightlife of nightclubs, restaurants, and resorts, or go shopping at its many boutiques and galleries.

Puerto Vallarta: This Jalisco town on Banderas Bay sits by the Sierra Madre Mountains. Architecture captures old Mexican charm, with cobblestone streets meant for exploration during your time in port. Or, schedule an excursion for the outdoors, from four-wheeling in the jungle to swimming with the dolphins and whale watching. After, don’t forget to try the town’s seafood specialties.

Ensenada: The third-largest city in Baja California offers activities for everyone. While the water beckons, especially with the stunning sight of La Bufadora geysers and its many beaches, the town features museums with exhibits on Mexican artifacts and art, parks, and several shopping options. As Ensenada is the heart of Mexican wine country, be sure to try this taste during your time in port.

Close to home – but another culture away. Soak up the Pacific beaches and get to know Mexican culture with your family on board one of these cruises. Schedule your trip today and find various deals through Direct Line Cruises.
