Mexico City has been one of my favorite places on Earth ever since I lived there with my wife in the early '80s. It was an amazing place for food then, and it still is--the city's restaurant scene has, just like in most big cities around the world, exploded.
As far as amazing places go, there's truly no place like home. After all, why fret about exorbitant airfare to far-flung locales when you can experience some of the world's most stunning sights right here in North America?
Valentine's Day isn't going anywhere, so we singletons (and it's complicated-tons) might as well go somewhere. During the flurry of February 14th is an ideal time to skip town and indulge in some unadulterated fun sans romantic pressure.
Take the opportunity to swim with sea lions, whale sharks and the wide variety of marine life that inhabits the sea. Fun Baja also offers combination scuba camping trips and scuba certification programs for every level of diver from beginner through advanced.
If you've been to a party in Mazatlan, Mexico, you know what they mean by "fiesta." Now multiply by 10, add a chorus from Julio Iglesias and a wow from Lady Gaga, and you'll have a faint idea of the welcome celebration awaiting cruise passengers soon to disembark at this classic seaside port town.
