Welcome to Mahahual
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 arrive at Costa Maya on a cruise ship you'll have been encouraged to take an organized excursion rather than do your own thing. Our advice would be walk straight through the tourist shops alongside the port, grab a taxi outside and in 5 minutes and at a cost of $2 per person US you'll arrive in Mahahual.
The cruise ships will tell you that Mahahual is not safe. This is because they want you to shop and eat at the port owned mall and shops. Mahahual is very safe - Go enjoy Mahahual!
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!
We're here to help you have a great time!
Top Rated Beach Front Rental
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.
