  • The Malecon

    Spend an entire day walking along the Malecon, Puerto Vallarta’s beach boardwalk. Shop for regionally crafted goods — like woven baskets or a pair of leather boots — and meet the locals who created them. Stop for lunch at a nearby restaurant, where you can enjoy delicacies like tamales and pozole with a seafront view. Or watch street performers sing and dance, and get up close to larger-than-life sand sculptures.

  • Mazatlan Cathedral

    On a Mexican Riviera cruise with Princess, travel back in time to the 19th century during a visit to Mazatlan’s Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Admire the Moorish and Gothic architecture, and marvel at statues of famous saints — like Matthew, Mark, Luke and John — that decorate the church’s exterior. Then head inside to see baroque decor, crystal chandeliers and gold-lined murals.

  • Medano Beach

    With an abundance of activities to do on both land and sea, Medano Beach offers something for the whole family. Relax on the golden shores, or indulge in a waterside lunch nearby. Float in the turquoise sea, or make some waves on a jet ski ride. Your dream beach day awaits on a Mexican Riviera cruise to Cabo.
