Default Majahual(Costa Maya) activities

Hey there, everybody! Happy Holidays...

Has anyone been to Majahual(Costa Maya) and taken any excursions on their own? The cruise line's offering were (I thought) a little expensive and didn't include any snorkeling which is supposed to be terrific in Costa Maya.

I found a web site that said the port has a lot of shopping and some sort of show(Aztec traditional dance) available. Are there people who will give you a tour of the local area that hang out there? I've had a lot of luck with that approach on the Carribean islands in the past.

Thanks in advance,

I leave January 12th for a cruise on the 13th. I'll be sure to write what I find out about this port. I found a few websites that provide some limited information about the area and things to do. It seems less developed and probably will be (I hope) a little less touristy than some of the other ports.

Here's a site for a resort in Costa Maya~~http://www.costa-maya.com/. There's some information here but not much. If you're a snorkler or diver, it seems there's a lot of that to be done in the area.

The other informative link I found is~~http://www.puertocostamaya.com/.
It's the official port website. There is some good information and a map of the area. Supposedly, there is a large shopping area right off the pier. I'm sure there will be information there, too.

I'm hoping to possibly do a kayak adventure here. There's a place called Ibis Island where they take tour groups. This isn't something offered from the ship, so I'm going to take my chances and try to book it on my own. Otherwise, I'll probably just go snorkelling close to the pier, since there is supposedly some nice areas on the adjacent beaches.
