My friend and I are taking our first Mexican Riviera cruise on the RC Vision of the Seas in October and are very excited. (I've cruised 3 times before, and this will be her first.)
I thought I had heard there were ruins outside Puerto Vallarta, but it looks I may have heard wrong. Any tips regarding ruins, digs, or other historical sites of interest near Puerto Vallarta or Mazatlan and if so, any tips on how to get there?
If there aren't any digs in those places, what is our best bet for a more authentic cultural experience?
