Start planning your cruise and book your excursions in Costa Maya

Is the sea your element? Do you never get tired of observing the perpetual motion of the waves? Let yourself get carried away to the Costa Maya during an MSC Caribbean and Antilles Cruise, an area surrounded by tropical beaches and boasting the ancient splendours of pre-Columbian civilization.
MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
 

  • Splendid Mayan ruins
  • Wild animals and lush vegetation
  • Exciting and fun activities in marine waters
 
An MSC Excursion will take you away from the hustle and bustle of modern cities to savour the calm and tranquility that today surrounds the ancient ruins of the Mayan cities. An incredible plunge into the past made of pyramids, fortified walls, sculptures, coloured stones, decorations, from a civilization that was once at the forefront of the fields of mathematics, astronomy and architecture as early as 2,000 BC.
 
Do you like exploring nature? An MSC excursion will help you discover the wild animals and lush vegetation that characterise Costa Maya. A bath in the mangroves, a photograph of the pink and white flamingos, an unexpected sighting of a possum or a crocodile half asleep are just some of the things that you may encounter.
 
An MSC Excursion will allow you to enjoy exciting and fun water activities: from diving in the world's most envied waters to water ski, windsurf, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, cruising on a catamaran or even yacht riding. Costa Maya will not disappoint you!

    One of the world’s great civilizations, Mexico is a great cruise destination with its melange of Mesoamerican cultures, modern indigenous tribes and Spanish traditions; it’s a vibrant modern economy too, the biggest in Latin America after Brazil.

    Mexico’s landscapes are just as diverse, from the shimmering blue coastline of Baja California and the iconic cactus-strewn deserts of the north, to the Mayan villages and gorgeous palm-smothered beaches of the Caribbean Sea. You can climb volcanoes, watch whales, swim underground and tour tequila farms during your holiday to Mexico.

    And sprinkled throughout you’ll find richly adorned colonial churches, giant ancient pyramids and a sophisticated cuisine that has little in common with the world of nachos and burritos. Despite the inevitable influence of the US and close links with the rest of the Spanish-speaking world, the country remains resolutely individual. The music that fills the plazas in the evenings, the buildings that circle around them, even the smells emanating from a row of taco carts: they all leave you without any doubt about where you are.

     Many first-time visitors are surprised to find that Mexico is far from being a “developing” nation: the country has a robust economy, the world’s fourteenth largest, a remarkably thorough and efficient internal transport system and a vibrant contemporary arts and music scene.
