Costa Maya Port Terminal

Costa Maya is a really easy port to visit via cruise ship. The Costa Maya port terminal is within walking distance of the ship. It takes about 5-10 minutes to walk from the ship to the shopping area or you can take a train down the dock. The train runs on tip money and goes back and forth down the dock while the ship is in port.
