Costa Maya Reopening Three Months Ahead of Schedule
The Port of Costa Maya, which took a major hit from Hurricane Dean in August 2007, is on the rebound and coming back faster than anticipated.

According to an official statement, the reconstruction of berthing spaces one and two is now 58 percent complete -- and both will be ready to receive cruise ships three months earlier than originally expected (no exact date was given). A third position is also being rebuilt, to be finished after the summertime reopening. In the interim, Costa Maya will only welcome ships at its fully operational berths. The port will not tender in additional passengers, in order to focus on reconstruction and recovery while still operating at two-thirds capacity.

At this point, we do not know which cruise lines will be first to return. Negotiations are underway, according to the statement, and a new schedule should be finalized and available by the beginning of February.

We'll keep you posted.
