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.

We we're here while in a cruise with Royal Caribbean. It was an unplanned stop as hurricane Irma changed the itinerary for the week. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating. Also, there was an area to watch dolphins working with trainers, an exotic...More

Obviously it's not Cancun or Cozumel, but I was impressed with this RCI created port stop on a recent cruise. Along with the obligatory cruise port shops, there are some great non-chain stores and restaurants. Also, plenty of clean restrooms and a large free pool...More

Shuttle bus goes back and forth. You still need to walk length of ship to get to the elbow of the pier where the shuttle is. Shuttle doesn't go down to the exit door of the boat. If you want a beach you really need to book... More
