Costa maya snorkelling



We didn't originally sign up for any excursions while the ship is in port at Costa Maya/Majahual for our upcoming cruise. Is there anywhere to snorkel from shore around the port area, like a closeby beach ? Also, is there are good photo opportunities if I get off the ship at this port (for free/no excursion) ? Thanks in advance ! We're leaving on our FIRST cruise ever next Sunday :)


There is pretty good snorkeling at the beach just to the right of the pier. Do watch for any posted signs about current, as it does sometimes get going there and you'll want to be aware.

The shore is rocky, so if you don't enter the water with your fins on (or have full-foot fins), you'll want to be sure to have water shoes in which to walk out.

As for photo opportunities - what are you looking to photograph?
