Mahahual Mexico


Mahahual and the Costa Maya is the new favorite vacation destination on Mexico's Caribbean Coast. Mahahual is the Hidden Jewel of the Yucatan Peninsula.

This small fishing village located on the beautiful turquoise Caribbean Sea is just south of Playa del Carmen and Tulum and boasts white powdery beaches and temperatures ranging from 78-85F every day of the year.

With the new highway from Cancun's International Airport, the drive to Mahahual is easy. There are many beautiful attractions along the way including the historic ruins of Tulum and Coba. 

If you visit Mahahual by ship, leave the port shops and take the 5 min taxi ride into the old town of Mahahual. Here you will find numerous restaurants, bars and activities located on Mahahual's beautiful beaches.
Come listen to the soothing sounds of the Caribbean. Here "life slows." It's time to leave the crowds of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum and enjoy the natural beauty and authenticity of this quaint village.

Mahahual offers small hotels in the heart of the town and luxurious vacation villas on its secluded beaches. There are grocery stories, restaurants and many of the activities you'll find in any great Beach Vacation Destination...all without the crowds!

Where is the town from the Port 

The town is Mahahual is a must see on your visit. If you arrive by cruise ship, walk past the ports own shops that have been made to keep the tourist at the port. They don't want you to leave this area; they want you to spend your money right at the dock. They will try and scare you saying the town is not safe. Don't believe them! Walk out to the front of the buildings and take the 5 min cab ride into town. Don't think that the town of Mahahual is right outside the ports gates either. The town of Mahahual is a 5 min cab ride south of the cruise ship dock. (It's too far to walk) the town of Mahahual is located on a much nicer beach then what the port offers. There are many restaurants, bars and shops right on the beach. Find yourself a nice table and enjoy fresh seafood and a cold drink!

Your Ship is only 5 min away!

Is your cruise ship Port of Call Mahahual?
Read this!

The ship will dock at the port. The port would like to keep all their cruise ship passengers at the port shops to spend money. But... the food, drinks, and gifts are twice the price. Don't be fooled by them telling you Mahahual is not safe. I have been to Mahahual over 40 times and never have I seen or had any problems. When you arrive at the port, all you have to do is walk out to the taxies; you can take the 5 min ride into Mahahual for around 5.00 to 7.00usd (round trip)

Trust me... You will totally enjoy your day on the beach. There are over 20 restaurants and bars. More than that in the way of small shops. And the prices are half of what you would pay at the port shops.

The food is wonderful and very inexpensive.  Take the day and visit Mahahual only 5 min from the ship. It's really too far to walk, and don't be fooled... the town of Mahahual is on the beach a 5 min drive from the port. The huge beautiful shops just outside the port also belong to the port.

Cabs are everywhere in Mahahual getting back to the ships is quick and easy.

Mahahual is like most Mexican towns in regard to finding a nice restaurant on the beach. The waiters will be out if force to get your business. Just look at their menu in hand and check the prices. Once you see what you like, have a seat. The service will be fantastic. Just Relax and Enjoy!

Investment Properties Mexico:

Baby boomers are exhibiting a growing demand for both short and long-term vacation homes, according to a recent article by Canada's Winnipeg Free Press, and once again Mexico is topping the list of international destination's in demand. Since the baby boomer population is now nearly in full retirement, with as many as 10,000 retiring daily in North American, there has reportedly been a dramatic increase in the number of retirees looking to find a semi permanent home in warm, tropical destinations like Mexico.

Fishing, Bird Watching & Mayan Ruins

There are many sites in Mahahual and the Costa Maya. The coastal lands between Tulum and Xcalak are an explorers' paradise. Unspoiled mangrove estuaries and marshlands just back from the beach, are hatcheries for hundreds of species of fish. These ecosystems provide world-class saltwater flats fishing for anglers, and fertile feeding grounds for migratory birds that fly between the United States and Central and South America. After fishing or bird watching, check out the Ruins in the south end of Quintana Roo. Head out of the Mahahual town center into the interior of the peninsula. The Mayan ruins of Chacchoben are very close to the town of Limones with the Mayan ruins of Kohunlich and Dzibanche just to the south.

Yucatan Ferry Service
From Marcia at / MBG Hello Everyone:

Finally some very exciting news with regard to a US to Yucatan ferry service.  Following are excerpts from Bruce Nierenberg which he has given permission to share.  Please feel free to share this news.

We expect the round trip fare for the ferry including a cabin and all food and entertainment on board to start at $350 round trip. Cars will probably cost $95 one way. Again, frequent users will pay lower rates. We have even discussed with others the interest in getting super special rates by buying a ticket book for trips in advance that gets them the lowest possible rates, guaranteed space on the trips they want, and the lowest car rates too.

Questions most frequently asked:

1. Can we bring small pets?  - yes
2. Can I bring extra stuff for my residence in Mexico other than luggage and what fits in my car? - yes

We will have special personal cargo bins that can hold up to 1000 lbs and hold bulky items like bedding, appliances, even a refrigerator. We will rent the bins one way for $95. Compare that to excess baggage charges for luggage!!!!!

3. Can I bring an RV - yes
4. Motorcycles - yes
5. Small boats - yes
6. When will the web site be up - it's already being prepared.  We will have a preliminary site up by end august that will have schedules etc. We will send out an email to all when the site is ready.
7. When will bookings start? - Target is October.
8. When will first voyage be?
Target is April. Still having details worked out as it relates to when the ship will be turned over to us for use.
9. Will this be a year round service?
Yes. There will be 2 round trips per week between the U.S. And the Yucatan. 52 weeks a year
10. How will we be able to book?
