Costa Maya Shore Excursions

Costa Maya Cruise Port doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Costa Maya Cruise Port At the start of the pier, there is a purpose built cruise port area, with shops and a beach zone with salt water pool. If you are the lazy type, you can spend an agreeable day here, and need not venture any further.

Mahahual Town and Beach doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Mahahual Town and Beach Mahahual town was a small fishing village before the arrival of the cruise port. Now new businesses have sprung up to serve the almost daily influx of cruise ship passengers. The town is fronted by lovely Mahahual beach, a long sweep of soft white sand. Here you can rent banana boat rides, jet skis, snorkeling gear, fishing trips, sail boats, parasailing, cheap massages or just collapse in a chair in the sun (or shade) and kick back. There's a concrete 'boardwalk"'called the malecon along the beach. Shops, restaurants and bars line the town side of the malecon. Mahahual is a short (5 minute) cab/shuttle bus ride from Costa Maya cruise port.

Chacchoben Mayan Ruins Chacchoben Mayan Ruins Largely unexplored until 1999, Chacchoben dates back to the 4th century. The ruins are situated in a secluded jungle setting near the border with Belize. The most impressive constructions are three large pyramids. The journey to the ruins takes about 1 hour from Costa Maya by coach.

The Jungle The Jungle A jungle tour is a great way to get a glimpse of the amazing flora and fauna of central America. Some of the options on offer include zip lining, hiking a jungle path, climbing along a canopy trail, seeing the crystal clear jungle lagoons and visiting a remote beach. Don't forget your insect repellant!

Kohunlich Mayan Ruins Kohunlich Mayan Ruins An unforgetable outing is the trip to the Kohunlich Mayan ruins. Highlights are the 7 foot tall faces at the Temple of the Masks, the Plaza of the Acropolis, and the Plaza of the Estelas. The ruins are about 2 hours by coach from Costa Maya.
