Costa Maya Maritime Terminal, a cruise parade!

Costa Maya is a place to meet the needs and whims of all tourists, has from beach clubs, shops, different dining options to pamper your belly and drink something delicious and of course, also offers tours to the nearest destinations, such as La Laguna de los Siete Colores de Bacalar or the nearby Archeological Zones, such as Chacchobén.

Water park in Mahahual, Lost Mayan Kingdom
It is a water park very close to the maritime terminal, unique in all of Quintana Roo. You have the years you have, you will feel five years old, running, climbing, going down, because it has two giant circuits of zip lines that cover all the territory that includes the park. The first tour called Tucán, includes seven zip lines and reaches distances of up to 160 meters. and the second, called Águila, takes you between the zip lines, by obstacle courses and hanging bridges. Something I had never seen before was the Kukulkan flight, which is a ride that goes up, down and around, very much like a roller coaster, but instead of going on a cart with a lot of people sharing the collective hysteria, they are throwing each in his harness, it’s an adventure!
To follow the limit of adrenaline are the slides, ranging from the quietest to one that has the feeling of free fall, is green fear and you will not have to explain what it is, you can see from afar that it is the good little merit! At twelve meters high there are other very fine slides, there is one in which you go around like in a blender until you fall into a pool two meters deep, there is another or in which you throw yourself seated in a round inflatable, it’s hilarious !, although my favorite was the one that you throw yourself upside down on a kind of firm rug and has handles, it starts being a closed slide, you take a turn of those legendary and in that you see that the roof opens and you fall at the speed of light, taking out all the water, which will make you stop and feel your eyes come out between the brakes and the emotion. Finally, among the list of slides, I can not help mentioning those that descend from 25 meters high, they are yellow in color and ufff, they are a fast adrenaline experience, one of them is summarized in two descents, so the speed is divided into two slopes and the second has only one slope, you will feel that your heart goes out in the most fun way!
Banco Chinchorro for lovers of diving and snorkeling.
Banco Chinchorro is a natural atoll located 40 km approximately east of the tourist town of Mahahual, about an hour and 15 minutes by boat, is also a protected natural park whose extension extends for just over 40 km of coral reefs, which have been witnesses of stranding of several boats from the time of the conquest of the American continent until our days, in its bed have been found cannons, knives, and vestiges of said past and recent shipwrecks, besides its immense biodiversity that makes it a very special tourist attraction, among lovers of diving and snorkeling.
