Costa Maya Excursions and Tours to Mexico

Costa Maya Excursions

Costa Maya is located on the Yucatan peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo. Rich history, soft beaches, and a stunning coral reef just offshore make Costa Maya a desirable destination for people going on cruises in the Caribbean. The Costa Maya port is also the closest access point to many of Mexico's lesser-known and less excavated Mayan sites, making visits to these sites incredibly worthwhile and within easy access right off of the cruise ship.

Costa Maya Shore Excursions to Experience

A few of our top Costa Maya excursions and tour sites include the Mayan ruins at Chacchoben, Kohunlich, and Dzibanche, which are three of Mexico's best-kept secrets. At the archaeological site of the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins, you can learn about the rich history of the area and later spend time with locals who will teach you how to make traditional and authentic Mexican food. At the Kohunlich Mayan Ruins, you can visit many still intact rooms of a Mayan palace. And the Dzibanche Mayan Ruins are believed to be an early capital of the Kan Dynasty. You'll also find important temples of Mayan history featuring pyramids built using 5th-century Maya architecture methods. There's no shortage of sightseeing in Costa Maya!

After marveling at these incredible pieces of ancient Mayan history, swim with dolphins in Costa Maya's dazzling blue waters for a day excursion complete with excitement and intrigue. You should also scuba dive to see the wide variety of sea life in Costa Maya. If you're looking for a snorkel tour, make sure to visit the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, full of amazing tropical fish and coral formations.

For some adventure, consider a boat tour or a kayak or canoe rental at the Bacalar Lagoon, also known as the Seven Color Lagoon by locals, where you can also see the wonderful cenotes (natural deep-water wells). There are many gorgeous places to swim, windsurf, paddleboard, and sail. Renting an ATV is another popular activity in Costa Maya.

And if you're looking to relax, take a beach break and enjoy one of Costa Maya's beautiful beaches. Mahahual Beach is a great place to relax, with plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas available. There's also an excellent beach club with an open bar right on the sea! This little town is known as a quiet place in the evenings and then springs to life when the cruise ships come in. We have excursions and tours for every activity level at every price point, so read our ratings and book your Costa Maya, Mexico Excursion today!
