Costa Maya is one of the most popular Western Caribbean ports of call for cruise ships. This port is also beneficial for wheelchair users because all cruise ships dock here, so no tenders are required. However, there are considerable limitations for activities beyond the port area, as you will read below.
Costa Maya is the first Western Caribbean port designed exclusively for the cruise ship industry, and is located just hours south from Cancun on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. Resembling an ancient Mayan city, Costa Maya is able to accommodate three ships at once and entertain visitors at a destination that showcases the ancient and colonial heritage of the Mexican Caribbean, along with all of today’s modern conveniences. The pier-side village features a number of free-to-use pools (one of which is huge with a swim up bar), restaurants, bars, and shops. There is even a small rocky beach with hammocks. This village is located at the end of the cruise dock, and is only a short roll away from your ship.
