We booked this excusion from our cruise and it was well worth it. The island itself is beautiful...mini zoo, beautiful tropical foilage and snorkeling! We had the lunch which was chicken, rice and beans and all were delicious. They also had a quaint souvenir shop with reasonable prices. The only negative was the sand fleas. My husband's disappeared within a... More

My fiancé and I have been to Maya Key twice in 18 months and enjoyed it immensely. We've had tours on the island, snorkeled, and had the chicken, rice and beans (the best!). It is a great place to relax and be away from a lot people. The beach is clean, the area is beautifully landscaped and the animals are... More

We loved Maya Key. We took a boat to our little oasis right from the pier. It literally is a five minute ride. When we arrived my sister and I did the sea lion encounter. It was amazing. I never knew there was a South American Sea Lion. We got some amazing pictures and learned a lot of interesting information.... More

Often times, the advertising embellishes a bit too much and your expectations aren't met. I would say that Maya Key provided everything it said it would. They are very convenient to the cruise ships (5 to 15 minute boat ride depending on which dock you come in too). They offer a varied selection of animals and an amazing variety of... More

We booked Maya Key through our cruise line. It was so convenient, we got off the ship and the boat was right there!! A few people had issues with bug bites at the beach, but luckily they didnt bite us. The pitch of the sand at the beach is pretty hard to get in the water, but if you enter/exit... More

We really loved this location. Nice long pier that allows you to drop right into the reef and snorkel. Beautiful tropical fish and coral. We also added on the shark and ray encounter which was fantastic. It was topped off with a yummy traditional Honduras meal. Highly recommend.

It was pretty, but the sand fleas on the beach were horrendous. I walked by one woman who was covered in red blotches about 1/2 the size of a dime. I thought that she had the measles! Later I noticed my own bites, mostly on my legs. You don't feel them biting, you just get the red blotches for a... More

This private island is loaded with many different places to swim or just lay in a chair or even to get into the pool. There was a pier that you could walk out on and go snorkeling. They even had a underwater trail to follow as you snorkeled. The food was great, but as an added bonus, this island also... More

We had such a blast on Maya Key. The best part of the island is that there is so much to do. Other than the nice beach area, they had a pier perfect for snorkeling, an animal sanctuary where they led tours on how they rehabilitated the animals, a sea lion habitat, a replica of Mayan ruins with a museum,...
