Costa Maya is one of Mexico's most popular cruise ports and emerging travel destinations located just hours from Cancun on Mexico's southern Yucatan Peninsula. The modern port is able to accommodate three ships at once, with the capability to dock Oasis and Epic sized ships, and entertain visitors at a destination that showcases the ancient and colonial heritage of the Mexican Caribbean with all of today's modern conveniences. Costa Maya is comprised of three grand pavilions, artisan and luxury shopping areas, a beach club, saltwater pools, fine restaurants and bars, and all the resources necessary to explore the surrounding jungle and the world's second largest coral reefs.

I've been on numerous Norwegian Cruises and this one, by far, was my least favorite cruise. Cozemel, Costa Maya, Roaton and some funky private island for Belize. Spare yourself and go to Hawaii instead.

The gateway to the amazing beaches of the Yucatan peninsula. We had read about Mahahual and decided to head there on our own, rather than a tour. Five dollar taxi ride.

Have visited Costa Maya several times. This is one of my favorite stops. Enjoy the shops, restaurants and the people. The beaches are absolutely beautiful.

They beach has tons of cabanas, umbrellas, chairs and friendly people. They will try to sell you stuff but just say no thanks and they move along. The water was so clear and beautiful, I said I could live there forever.
