? for cruisers with experience with excursions on Costa Maya, Cozumel and Roatan


Recommended Posts

We have Costa Maya, Cozumel and Roatan as our 3 ports of call on our RC sailing in May.

 

We would like to do a resort day, a snorkeling excursion and a historic or ruins excursion.

 

Which is the best port for a resort day, the best port for a snorkeling excursion and the best port for a ruins excursion?

 

Open to specific excursion, resort and ruins recommendations as well.

 

I should mention that it is just my husband and I so I would prefer a resort that wasn't specifically family/kid focused.

 

Thanks,

Betsy

Having been to all these locations, I can say:

Cozumel is the only one with ruins nearby. Also has good snorkeling.

Roatan West Bay snorkeling is one of the best off-beach snorkels I have ever experienced. There are tons of fish and massive coral formations in just 5 feet of water!

Costa Maya has no great snorkeling (too rough and deep), but you may be able take a day trip to some ruins.

Having done all three several times I'd go with:

Cozumel - do Tulum ruins

Roatan - snorkeling. West Bay right from shore is amazing.

Costa Maya - if you're wanting a quiet day on the beach with few people go with Almaplena.
