Recursions for Costa Maya

Does anyone know of good excursions, or things to do during our stop at Costa Maya? We will be traveling on the Grand Princess the first week of June. We plan to snorkel and see the stingrays at Grand Cayman, and snorkel at a reef at Cozumel. Any other suggestions?

Hi Debbie:

We were in Costa Maya a couple of weeks ago. We LOVED it. What a neat port!

For 30 bucks per person, we went to Uvero Beach for the day. (Jungle Beach Break).... beautiful water, open bar, decent food. Had a blast.

We were also in Grand Cayman (EDEN ROCK snorkeling!) and Cozumel. You can read more at:

We took the shorter Mayan Ruins excursion which was quite interesting. There were several pyramids and other newly escavated buildings, and they allowed us to climb them all. My legs were killing me the next day, but it was a great shore excursion! We got in plenty of time to shop at the circular plaza at the pier.

Before you climb to the top of a pyramid check with those that have completed their climb since once you get to the top and look down and do not see any stairs you know you might have made a mistake.

That is quite a true statement, Paul! I have climbed the pyramids in Egypt, scaled Ayres Rock in Australia, etc. but the Tulum Pyramids had the scariest affect on me. Looking down from the top, you don't see any steps. I had to turn around and crawl down backwards until I got closer to the ground. Really an experience!!

It's fun though and more fun to watch people coming down.

We're are going to be there in the fall and would like to go to the ruins. Did you take the ship excursion (and how much$$) and/or can you do it on your own.

Do it on your own. Lots of taxis wiating and will be cheaper than the ship's excursion.

Ray,
Do you remember what the taxi's charged for a half day tour to the ruins? I've been doing some research on this port and it sounds like all of the taxi's here are regulated by the port of Costa Maya and the rates are fixed.
