Okay, so... I'm going on a 7 day cruise to the Mexican Riviera in May. Aside from all the things there are to do on the boat (whichever boat that ends up being) I was looking into shore excursions and there seems to be more information than I know what to do with. Having never been to the Mexican Riviera myself and not really knowing what the excursions are all about I, again, turn to you for advice/opinion on the subject of which shore excursions to consider.
I imagine most cruise lines offer the same type of excursions and while were not totally committed to a particular cruise line yet I think its safe to say were gonna go with Royal Caribbean. I downloaded the available shore excursions from their website and it printed out 40-something pages of things to do. Will you help me narrow it down to a few MUST-SEE/DO's? Also, what are things we should avoid?
A little direction....
the thing that makes deciding so hard for me is that I like to do everything. I like adventure. I like relaxation. I like being physical. I like be lazy. I like getting dirty. I like being pampered. I like history and culture. I like taking risks. I would, however, like a good mix of things to do. I don't want to do the same type of activity at each port of call. I want variety. I want the "best of". Also, we don't drink so any activity that revolves around drinking (e.g. wine tasting, etc.) can be ruled out.
Phew... thanks again for your help.
