Authentic  Cozumel Shrimp Tacos

Local Cuisine

Cozumel’s cuisine is dominated by Mexican, American and international cuisine. Fresh seafood is always a good choice, and so is the cochinita pibil— a slow-roasted, highly seasoned pork dish. Cool off with a michelada, made with beer and freshly squeezed lime juice over ice in a salt-rimmed glass. Or keep it traditional with Mexico’s signature spirit, tequila.

Galveston
Arrives at 7:00 AM
A quaint seaside city toting a Texas-sized personality, Galveston offers both action-packed adventure and an easygoing beach vibe. Dangling on a barrier island fringing the Gulf of Mexico, the sea meets the South here in spectacular fashion. Over 60 National Register of Historic Places play backdrop to the Pleasure Pier’s waterfront amusements. Jump onboard a Galveston cruise to experience the lively seawall scene on two wheels, or relive the port’s glory days at the Texas Seaport Museum. Head to the island’s west end for kayaking and fishing— or brave the world’s tallest water coaster at Schlitterbahn Water Park.

HEAD TO THE PIER

Say hello to the thrills and excitement of the massive amusement park at the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier. Galveston cruises give the opportunity to experience all that the pier has to offer. Enjoy the rides before playing all of the classic carnival games — there's even a roller coaster on Pleasure Pier!

BUILDING BLOCKS

Stroll past well-preserved Victorian-era buildings in the old Strand District during your Galveston cruise. Once called the “Wall Street of the South”, this charming commercial hub, along with the neighboring East End Historic District, is home to mansions-turned-museums, the Grand 1894 Opera House, plus loads of unique shops and cozy cafés.

LOCAL CUISINE

Seafood is king on Galveston Island— Gulf shrimp, blue crabs, snapper and grouper come fresh off the boat. But the signature Tex-Mex cuisine equally impresses with sizzling fajitas and tequila-laced margaritas. Old Strand Emporium scoops out ice-cream parlor charm, while La King’s Confectionary is where local candy makers craft saltwater taffy in-house. Don’t miss a drive-through daiquiri stand for a frozen cocktail on-the-go.

SHOPPING

The Strand Historical District is the town’s prime shopping spot, where 19th-century storefronts now house a quirky collection of locally owned gift shops and antique stores. Here you can pick up beachwear, whimsical gifts, model ships, used books, Southwestern turquoise jewelry, and Texas-inspired home décor.
