A trip of a lifetime lies ahead when you connect one of Vacations By Rail's train vacations through the United States with a Mexico cruise. Aboard a comfortable and efficient Amtrak train, follow a route through a sampling of America's most beloved cities before boarding your Grand Princess cruise ship bound for Mexico's premier vacation destinations. These tours depart from Chicago and continue on northerly or southerly journey, depending on your travel preferences. An itinerary featuring Amtrak's City of New Orleans follows a southbound path and includes time in both bookend cities before setting sail from New Orleans. Alternatively, vacation packages that utilize the California Zephyr depart on the Mexico cruise portion of the tour from San Francisco.
As you set sail aboard your luxurious cruise ship, enjoy sights of crystal blue water and beautiful coastline as you approach idyllic locales. Discover sandy beaches, ancient ruins and vibrant cities that exude the vibrant spirit of the country on these Mexico vacations. Snorkel in the warm waters of Cabo San Lucas. Explore Mayan artifacts and archeological hotspots outside of Costa Maya or kick back in Manzanillo, a place to visit in Mexico that has not yet become a tourist mecca. Experience the resort town of Puerto Vallarta, where artists and beach lovers both find plenty to love. Mexico tours that feature the island of Cozumel give travelers a taste of the warm, welcoming atmosphere the country is known for, as well as the opportunity to explore the underwater world of Chankanaab. Travel to the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains to see the stunning Gothic and Moorish architecture of Mazatlan. Your rail and cruise trip to Mexico may also include ports of call in the West Caribbean, creating a combination trip to remember.
