A nice shopping area at the end of the pier. Entertainment, bars, shopping and even a pool area for the use of shoppers.

Enjoyed this Port of Call. So colorful. We walked all around checking out all of the stores and picking up some souvenirs to take home. We then and then enjoyed a light lunch with drinks and took a dip in the pool. The water was on the cool side so we decided to walk around the Port again before our return to the Ship. Read Less

Awful stop. Over commercialization. No scenic views really unless you pay to take a tour. Not much available for handicapped people.

Day 7 : Cost Maya Mexico – didn’t book any excursions , this is manufactured port to try to get you spend you money.. they don’t haggle, and they barely budge. They start with these crazy prices – and barely go down $5- I will avoid cruises with this port going forward. Read Less

We went ashore for a very good lunch near the pier. The shuttle from the ship to the shore was helpful.

Nothing here but some souvenir shops and restaurants. No beach right off the ship, however there's a restaurant and a pool (full of kids). A tequila restaurant that was quite busy.

We didn't do an excursion through the boat... we rented a spot a the beach that included chairs, sun shades, and all the drinks you can drink. The beach here is beautiful, and is our new favorite beach spot in the Caribbean.

This was a wonderful experience and would suggest it for anyone! We got to spend a lot of time in the water with the dolphins and had a great time.

Costa Maya is a quaint but poor town. The locals are friendly and work very hard. The beach is beautiful in Mahahual

The best thing to do in Costa Maya is to get out of the pier area as soon as possible. There were 4 ships in port the day we were there. Too many people in such a small area. It was absolutely awful. So I headed to the taxi area. You must walk on the sidewalk to the left. Go outside the gate. Taxis are lined up there. It is $4 per person if you share. I had them take me to Blue Cay. https://www.bluekaymahahual.com/ It is the last resort at the end of Mahahual near the lighthouse. I enjoyed a lounge chair and one drink for $12. Relaxed and enjoyed my day. I was not really bothered by vendors trying to sell as I was at the end of the beach. When I walked around to shop, then I was bothered. But it's OK....folks just want to make a living. I snorkeled out from in font of Blue Cay and the reef there was super nice. I then sat in a hammock on the water....sweet! To go back to the ship, I just walked to the reception and they called me a cab. Riding alone it was $8 back to the ship. Great shore excursion on my own that I totally recommend to everyone!

Port set up for cruise lines. Plenty of shops and things to do - swimming, dolphins. W3 took a taxi downtown which was more rustic. Enjoyed an hour or so on the beach. Nice place

This was our third time to Progreso and it is normally one of our favorite ports. HOWEVER, RC changed the itinerary on this cruise from Costa Maya to Progreso very last minute and had us port there on a SUNDAY. Being that Enchantment is a tiny boat, the town didn't really open up for us on Sunday. I don't blame them, but it certainly left our teens with a totally different impression than we had of our first visit. Read Less
