The geographical area located on the south east coast of
the Yucatan Peninsular, between the southern border of the "Sian Ka'an"
Biosphere and the Belizean border is known as the "Costa Maya".. The towns
of Majahual and Xcalak are the primary tourist oriented areas..
New Majahual Beach area Dec 08
This area is still considered 'virgin' as tourist development has just
really started.. Long strips of sandy beach areas are still available for
those perhaps interested in this hidden corner of the world..
Majahual is the beginning of the "Costa Maya" and is the location of a
cruise ship pier.
December 2008 Majahual is open and back, better than ever!! The cruise ship pier has been rebuilt, and ships are coming into "the Costa Maya" as they did pre Dean.
Part of the reconstruction of Majahual is a new waterfront walking street, closed to vehicle traffic. Shops, restaurants with breach front tables and other services are all
located on this sea front blvd.

ADO bus service now offers service to Majahual from Cancun as well as Chetumal daily, so you can explore this laid back area of the Costa Maya region of Mexico!
To reach this remote part of Mexico, you must fly into Cancun and then
rent a vehicle and drive south on Hwy#307 through Playa del Carmen, Tulum
and the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto.. Once you have gone through the
pueblo of "Limones" be on the look out for the road signs, directing you
to Majahual-Xcalak.. The turn off will be on the left side of the road. It
is the only 'exit' and you will drive on this road until you come to the
small seaside town of Majahual.. Here you will find a few restaurants,
with seafood specialties..
Town of Majahual
If Xcalak is your final destination, you will see signs for this town
on the road leading into Majahual.. Just follow the signs...
Both these areas are very 'rustic' as electricity and phone lines are just now in 2005 reaching these
remote areas. When a cruise ship in port town is busy. No ships, it is quiet laid back beachside town.
Enjoy the adventure of your lifetime down on the Costa Maya..
