The Costa Maya, Mahahual/Majahual
& Quintana Roo South

What is the Costa Maya? The area known as Costa Maya is the coastal region of the Mexican Caribbean that extends from the border of the Sian Ka'an in the north to Belize in the South.

What is the Gran-Costa Maya? The Gran-Costa Maya emcompases the entire Southern part of Quintana Roo South of Felipe Carrillo Puerto to the Belizean Border. It includes the Capital of the state, Chetumal and the town of Bacalar.

The area is changing rapidly. Majahual's spelling has been changed on all government signs to Mahahual and is arguably the center of the Costa Maya. It has been welcoming cruise ships at the Puerto Costa Maya since Dec. 2002 with shops and tourist activities. Other towns such as the beautiful Bacalar with its turquoise blue lake and Chetumal, the capital of Quintana Roo, are nearby and are worth visiting with very good concrete highways to make the drive pleasurable and safe. Just watch the Topes!
