Get out of your comfort zone and discover an untamed wilderness, where you can dive into an underground cave or encounter ancient ruins with the best Mexico cruises.

THE PAST PRESERVED

Discover why Mexico is one of the most impressive civilisations in the world when you experience its Mayan ruins at Tulum, Ek Balam or Chichen Itza and its Aztec roots at Tenochtitlan and Templo Mayor, harkening back thousands of years of history.

BE NATURAL

It's easy to get in touch with Mother Nature when you're in Mexico. Tours take you through cenotes, expansive underground caverns, or on rainforest safaris where you can spot iguanas, macaws and other colourful wildlife.

COAST CALLS

Reach the beach and soak, surf or snorkel in Mexico's clear waters, then stroll over soft sands and discover ancient ruins by the sea in places like Cozumel and Cabo San Lucas. More seascapes are found in Playa Progreso in Yucatan, Costa Sur in Puerto Vallarta, Cacaluta in Huatulco and Mahahual in Costa Maya, all of which provide those frame-ready vistas synonymous with Mexico.

Mexico's cities and towns offer a wealth of cultural gems. You'll find everything from high art to colourful villages brimming with life and tradition on your cruise to Mexico.

DIG INTO LOCAL LIFE

Mexico's sprawling urban areas show you the lively side of this rich country. Stop by Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Cancun or Puebla to see the bustling streets filled with restaurants, bars and stores, the busy plazas with vendors offering local food and sweets, and the charming colonial neighbourhoods with colourful flowers dripping from balconies.

FIND FRIDA

From colourful skull souvenirs – a throwback to the ancient practice of honouring passed-on ancestors – and charming sombreros to Mayan temples and colonial-era architecture, Mexico is a treasure trove of the visual arts. You can get a glimpse of the country's most renowned artist, Frida Kahlo, at the Frida Kahlo Museum in Playa del Carmen.

TASTY TEMPTATIONS

Mexico is a kaleidoscope of unique regional cuisines, all equally flavour-packed. In Oaxaca, taste your way through the varieties of rich mole sauces, and in Yucatan explore fresh flavours in dishes heavy with citrus and spice, like cochinita pibil, the shredded pork that fills one of Mexico's most-loved taco styles.

INSIDER TIPS

1

Haggling on prices at local markets is par for the course here – just make sure you know a few words of Spanish, and don't ask the vendor to go unreasonably low.

2

Mexico's tiered bus system is a great way to get around affordably: Choose the first ('primero') or platinum ('platino') options for the high-end treatment.

3

There's a more lax attitude about time in Mexico, so factor in an extra half an hour to an hour when planning out your Mexico cruise itineraries.

FOR THE FOODIES
SABROSO IS THE WORD

Sabroso means delicious, which is synonymous with Mexico's cuisine. Known the world over for its originality when it comes to multi-layered flavours that focus on spice, Mexican food boasts dishes like mole, cochinita pibil and tacos al pastor. When in Mexico, go where the locals are eating and enjoy the salsas, the spices and the crunch.

MOLE POBLANO

A saucy and popular delicacy, mole poblano is made with chilli peppers and chocolate and is poured over chicken and then topped with sesame seeds.

TAMALES

Tamales are a steamed masa, or a corn-based dough filled with meats, cheeses, vegetables, chilli peppers or fruits. The masa is wrapped inside of a leaf and steamed. Discard the leaf and chow down on the stuffed dough for a traditional treat.

CHILAQUILES

Fried tortillas take a swim in spicy red salsa or refreshing green salsa for a savoury dish commonly enjoyed during breakfast.
