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,...

I had read a lot about Little French Key and it sounded great, but Maya Key was listed on the Royal Caribbean shore excursion list so went with that instead. We were not disappointed. The island is beautiful and a very short boat ride from the port. They have a small zoo type operation in conjunction with the resort which... More

We booked a shore excursion to Maya Key through our cruise. I have to say it was a great time on the island! From our ship to shore it was a 3 minute boat ride. Once we got there we were given a quick run down of the island, things to do, what to see etc. Then it was on... More

My boyfriend (33) and I (24) went and layed out in the sun for awhile, ate, checked out the replica Mayan Ruins and animals, then went back to the ship. Not very exciting for us & was kind of bored since we're more on the adventurois side. There's snorkeling, but i'd rather swallow a battery than snorkel. The food was... More

I did a lot of research and booked Maya Key based on good reviews. I booked through our cruise ship. We took a short van ride, about 15 minutes, from Mahogany Bay to Coxen Hole. From there a very quick boat ride to the island. The location of the island is terrible, if there is a cruise ship docked in... More

We enjoyed the lunch buffet and then headed straight to the absolutely GORGEOUS beach. Picture this: White sand, palm trees, calm, clear and warm water in January! Snorkeling off the end of the pier was fun but did not see tons of fish. They also have some animals to check out. This is a spot that is like a postcard... More
