Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico is a pleasant seaside city that has been built especially with you in mind. That’s right, that private island feel is exclusively available to cruise ship passengers. But more than just a beautiful waterfront, beachfront pedestrian path, and exclusive beach club, the surrounding area of Puerto Costa Maya is historically significant to the Mayan people.
Just a short trip away, you can explore lesser-known Mayan ruins including Chacchoben and Kohunlich. While not as well excavated as some of the more famous sites like Tulum and Uxmal, the ruins here are still a fascinating glimpse into the ancient and mysterious Mayan people.
Back on the coast, the nearby fishing village of Mahahual has also been extensively revitalized. Less than a 30-minute walk from Costa Maya, it’s the perfect excursion if you’re looking to stay a little closer to home. The picturesque malecon features a quaint row of hotels, restaurants serving the region’s specialty ceviche–among other things—and plenty of dive shops. Suit up and explore the turquoise waters teeming with sea life, or find a chaise lounge and umbrella for the ultimate in secluded and private beachside relaxation.
