Default Costa Maya

I was just wondering if anyone could give me a good detailed review of the port of Costa Maya. Is the shopping there good? Is there anything to do there besides excursions? As much detail as possible would be appreciated.

Thanks

Chipburger:

When you come off the pier there are the port shops. All kinds of stuff for sale here, but we found the prices to be better in Cozumel and it was pretty much the same stuff. But a good rule is if you see something your really like buy it because once you've left port there's no going back (unless you book another cruise of course!). There are restaurants, bars, a swim up pool, entertainment in the square. Outside of the port a couple of miles away is Mahuhual. We rented a golf cart to go @$15/hr which was a lot of fun. Some people were walking but I think it was a little to far to walk, especially in the heat. We hung around Mahuhaul for about two hours. Nice beach there, more shopping but I found the venders there pushy. I don't like being grabbed and pulled into places and that happened several times walking down the main street. We going back there in April 2005 and plan to book a tour this time so we can see more. Hope this helps.

When we visited Costa Maya we took a taxi over to the village of Majahual and visited the schools and delivered school supplies. I very good experience for our 10 yr old daughter and the best thing I think we've ever planned. I have pics on my website at http://kollnfamily.com/Inspirationcruise.htm
