    Hi, we're going to the Mexican riviera in April and curious how to arrange getting from the dock to the beach (do you walk?) And about how much does it cost.

    Hi there Kamee!

    April is just around the corner, and soon it will be your turn to set sail on the magnificent Disney Wonder!

    When in Puerto Vallarta, shopping is the only available option within walking distance of the port.  There are a few beaches a taxi or bus ride away and usually only run a few dollars per person. Maps are available at the tourist center that is located near the pier when you disembark the ship.  If you would like to book a Port Adventure, the Paradise Beach Adventure is a great way to spend the day relaxing by the beautiful waters of the Pacific.  Not only will you love lounging on the beach, but you will also have access to the resort swimming pool, waterslides, underwater caves, zoo, buffet lunch and much more.  Reserving Port Adventures through Disney allows you to enjoy your day not having to negotiate with locals and always guarantees you will get back to the ship for sailaway. 

    On Cabo San Lucas, the ship will use a tender service to transport passengers to the island.  There are beaches within walking distance once you arrive on the pier.  Cabo Resort Beach Getaway is a fun excursion that is only a short ride away and also includes a buffet lunch.  While there, you can enjoy the beach, resort pool, participate in a treasure hunt and sandcastle building. 

    I hope these ideas help you decide the best options for your port days during your Mexican Riviera cruise.
    Please let me know if you need any more help before you leave!

    Have a "Wonder"ful day!
