Costa Maya

Things to do in Costa Maya

  • Venture far beyond the Costa Maya’s bars, restaurants and shopping stalls, and you’ll discover flawless beaches and ancient Mayan sites. It’s a world away from the bright lights of neighbouring Cancun. The area’s biggest draw, though, lies off shore. There are more than 70 snorkelling spots dotted around the coast.

  • The Chacchoben ruins are hidden deep in an ancient jungle, and they’re incredibly well-preserved. Don’t miss the trio of pyramids at the heart of the site.
  • Animal-lovers should put the Costa Maya’s ‘Monkey Reserve’ at the top of their to-do list. The rehab centre cares for injured and ill-treated spider monkeys, and helps get them ready to return to the wild.
  • Home to the world’s second-biggest barrier reef, the Costa Maya’s snorkelling scene is second only to Australia’s. Turtles and tropical fish swim among the corals and sponges, while sunken ships wait to be explored.
