10 Night cruise sailing from Caldera to San Diego onboard Crystal Symphony.

Escape the pre-holiday hustle and indulge in the welcoming warmth of Mexico's famed resort towns on a voyage highlighted by Costa Rica's eco-adventures and San Diego's California charms.

Highlights of this cruise:

Caldera, Costa Rica
Superlatives abound when describing Costa Rica, one of Latin America's most peaceful countries. Often called the "Switzerland of Central America," it does not possess an army and boasts a stable democratic government as well as a high literacy rate. Strategically located between two great continents, it has been the benefactor of great cultural contributions from each. In addition to discovering its fascinating traditions, visitors to Costa Rica will be welcomed by friendly people and will enjoy superb scenery and an ideal climate.

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
Once a sleepy fishing village, San Juan de Sur has been energized by the discovery of its charming, crescent-shaped bay, excellent surfing and fishing, and authentic, laid-back culture. Vacationers certainly appreciate this slice of Pacific Coast paradise, strolling along golden-sand beaches and streets lined with wooden buildings painted in vibrant colors. What continues to make San Juan del Sur special is that it still retains its quiet side, with the town belonging mostly to the locals during the week and morning wake-up calls still being provided by the neighborhood rooster. Hammocks and sunsets are the way of life in San Juan del Sur, where the hilltop statue of Christ of the Mercy gazes upon the bay, like Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, but on a much smaller scale.

Acajutla, El Salvador
Relatively new on the cruise travelers’ map, El Salvador is likely to become pinned as a surprising favorite, due to a unique blend of authenticity and rusticity combined with classic tropical attractions—think national parks, steep volcanos, wide beaches, colonial history, colorful handcrafts and an easy-going attitude. Outdoor pursuits might put you in snorkel gear or on ziplines, or you might make a beeline for a café serving the region’s famed coffee. In fact, as El Salvador’s main port, Acajutla has seen its share of coffee and sugar shipped from these shores. Today, the export is you, the visitor, who leaves with tales of a fascinating exploration of a new Central American treasure.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Embraced by rugged tropical mountains on one side and the beautiful Banderas Bay on the other, Puerto Vallarta is second only to Acapulco when it comes to the Mexican Riviera's leading resort cities. White stucco houses are capped with red-tile roofs and surrounded by bougainvillea-lined cobblestone streets. Native women who beat their laundry along riverbanks as busy fishing boats return to port illustrate a lifestyle that has been maintained for decades. Nearby, sophisticated restaurants, luxury hotels, smart boutiques and lively nightclubs bear testament to the changes wrought on this quiet seaside city since the 1960s. Life here has never been quite the same since the filming of the movie "Night of the Iguana" and the worldwide publicity accorded the romance of its stars, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Puerto Vallarta brims with life. Shop for leather goods, shell and silver jewelry, hand-embroidered blouses or painted figures from Oaxaca. Explore cobblestone streets and picturesque alleyways filled with the scents and bustling energy of Mexico.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Cabo San Lucas is nestled on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean meet the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Commanding rock formations, timeless desert and a translucent sea provide a compelling introduction to this tranquil resort town. Here, mile upon mile of golden sandy coves dot the shoreline while marlin and sailfish frolic in the waters offshore. Laze on a deserted beach, explore the undersea world or discover bustling shops and markets for tempting treasures such as silver, jewelry and wooden sculptures.

San Diego, California
From the old Gas Lamp Quarter to the Horton Plaza, named after the former owner of the present city area, San Diego combines history with progress. Bordered on one side by the graceful Pacific Ocean lapping its shores and the hot desert plains on the other, this magical city is a festive and colorful attraction for tourists and locals. Close by lies graceful La Jolla, Spanish for the jewel, and Solana Beach, a beach community located near charming Del Mar. Whether you venture into Old Town, the original site of this city, or one of its gorgeous parks, you'll come to understand why San Diego has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in the United States.
