Here's the stereotype: Cruisers travel in large packs. They never eat in town because they're afraid they'll get sick or their purse will be snatched.

And cruisers only purchase souvenirs, etc. from the shops listed on the hand-outs provided by their ship. Why? Because they believe the spiel the cruise director feeds them about it being "unsafe" to shop anywhere else in town.
That's the stereotype of the typical Costa Maya cruise passenger. But it's a profile that obviously doesn't fit you because, here you are, digging deeper, doing the research necessary to plan something interesting and special for your day in Mahahual.

You've probably already figured out that you'll save money and have a higher quality experience if you break away from the herd and go for a day that's tailored just to your group's needs and interests.

Would you like to try diving? Rent a kayak? Eat a fresh lobster lunch? We have many excellent activities and services to offer to cruisers on their day break. Please browse ouractivitiesbelow to learn more about our scuba, snorkel, beach getaway and landtour packages. All of the prices are clearly listed on our Rates page.
