Costa Maya is the gateway to the Mayan ruins of Mexico.
The specifically created port of Costa Maya is a destination in itself, with multiple restaurants, bars, swimming pools, watersports, shops and market stalls where visitors can buy local crafts from. There is even the Lost Mayan Kingdom Water Park, just a few minutes' walk from the ship.
To see the real lost Mayan kingdom, take a tour out to see the temples and pyramids of Chacchoben in the jungle, just 45 minutes' drive from the port. The pyramids were lost to the world until they were rediscovered in 1931, so are very well preserved and a fantastic way to learn about the ancient Mayan civilisation.
