Costa Maya This very charming Peninsula in the south end of Mexican Caribbean has become very well known for ecological tourism, as it can always boast beautiful clear blue waters and unending activities. It is a region that holds some of the best samples of the kind of wild fauna and flora only the Caribbean has to offer. Snorkeling and diving are favourites of the areas as well as trekking and bike riding, bird and monkey watching and all sorts of wild activities for the young and the young at heart. This region could be considered spared by nature’s full force and after Wilma’s passing, some cruises call at Costa Maya, bypassing Cozumel, and has become a regular port of call for some or just a replacement port for others. Its tranquil towns turn tourists towns at the arrival of cruises with people looking for wondrous ruins in process of excavation, beautiful landscapes, great activities and real adventure. Protected by a reef and not as much in the hustle and bustle of things, it is fast becoming Mexico’s best loved cruise ship destination and is not a surprise.
