Despite its well-developed infrastructure and popularity with foreign visitors, Costa Maya remains one of the quietest tourist-oriented regions on the country's Caribbean coast. Top things to do in Costa Maya include swimming, sailing, surfing, and basking on powdery sands lapped by warm waters. Farther away from the sea, the area offers tropical forests and wetlands with abundant wildlife and scattered archaeological sties from Mexico's pre-Columbian past. Costa Maya holidays remain an ideal choice for visitors interested in discovering Mayan history, with many small communities preserving ancient traditions dating back several centuries. Ecotourism enthusiasts looking for a hit of adrenaline can choose between hiking, diving, snorkeling, and fishing expeditions with experienced guides.
