Costa Maya is a tourist region in Othon P. Blanco municipality (Quintana Roo, Mexico). This municipality is near the capital of the state, Chetumal, on the border with Belize. The region is generally undeveloped but has been rapidly growing after construction of a large pier accommodating cruise ships. Costa Maya includes a pair of small villages, Xcalak and Mahahual, and extends in the south to the southern border of Sian Ka'an in the north, approximately 100 km (62 miles). The fishing village of Mahahual is just 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) away of Costa Maya and cruise ships are easily seen from the village. Mahahual features grass thatched palapas, soft sand beaches, and a coral reef called Banco Chinchorro, as well as restaurants, bars and shops. A new development named New Mahahual has been created inland from the port.
The port of Costa Maya has a modern shopping mall. The center boasts a central plaza with 'swim-up' style bars and saltwater pools. There are also jewellery stores and small shops selling souvenirs. It is generally open to cruise ship passengers only. Costa Maya port is the closest to lots of the lesser known Mayan ruins in Yucatan including Kohunlich and Chacchoben.
