Costa Maya


Costa Maya - Mahahaul

January 2011

Costa Maya was our last port. Much like Grand Turk, there is a large "cruise plaza" that has numerous shops, bars, and a large swimming pool.

The water by the ship dock looked like a pretty good place to snorkel.

The Costa Maya complex has a large swimming pool with a nice swim up bar. Prices for drinks are about the same as the ship. (Which is pricey for Mexico)

There are numerous shops with all of the typical Mexican fare.

We decided to take the bus to Mahahaul. Mahahaul is a sleepy little town that is about 3 or 4 miles away. The bus ticket was $3 USD per person.

Mahahaul consists of numerous beach palapa type bars. It is geared toward the cruise ship crowd.

We landed at Pez Quadro. It is a little more expensive than the other places, but they give you nice lounge chairs and shade. The cerveza was $3 a piece, which is still pretty reasonable. They have an all inclusive plan, but we couldn't drink that much.

Pez Quadro also has a small hotel. The bathrooms were very clean.

We spent the day drinking cerveza on a beautiful Mexican beach. Nice way to spend the day!
