Port Description

Costa Maya, Mexico

Stretching from Tulum to Belize, Mexico's newest Caribbean resort region boasts unspoiled beaches and undiscovered Mayan ruins. Archeologists have unearthed no fewer than five ancient Mayan cities in the area, including little-known Oxtankah, which dates to 350 A.D.; Chakchoben, once a trade center for precious woods and jades; and Kohunlich, whose pyramids and ball courts are tucked deep within the jungle forest. History buffs head to Chetumal's Museum of Mayan Culture to unlock the secrets of this mighty civilization while scuba divers and snorkelers seek out the underwater gardens of Chinchorro Bank, an offshore barrier reef.
