Instead of taking an extended cruise, most boat tours only last a few hours. The length of your tour may be a deciding factor in whether or not you wish to take a boat cruise.

While boat cruises are often used to sightsee, there are many that serve other purposes. Many boat cruises offer exciting onboard activities. These activities often include a night of dinner and dancing. In Puerto Vallarta the Pirate Ship has a fun cruise for young people during the day and a dinner with a show during the evening for the adult crowd. With a little bit of research, it may be possible to find a boat cruise that is designed specifically for senior citizens.

Mexico beach resorts come in all different sizes and styles. As with most popular beaches, many beach resorts quickly fill up with tourists. Aside from large, well-known resorts, Mexico offers a number of smaller resorts that have a focus on relaxation and privacy. If you are interested in spending your vacation in a private and intimate setting, you may want to consider these types of resorts.

  1. I dunno. The more I read, the more I fear that much of Mexico offers opportunities akin to what happened in Las Vegas on 1 October… I prefer my trips to have fewer opportunities for such excitement.

      I have been living here for four years, never had a problem. What you read in the American papers is full of fluff to sell more papers. The killings that go on here are between one gang and another or the gangs and the government. The cartels try to avoid any conflict with the tourists because most of the cartels use the tourist area to laundry money. They understand that they need the tourists or that wouldn’t work.No one talks about who owns the large hotels, casinos and fancy restaurants but we all have a pretty good idea. So, I guess staying in your area would feel safer, but I do not want to be a prisoner to fear.
