Alternative Tourism on the Mayan Coast
Costa Maya, Quintana Roo
The Mexican Caribbean offers warm waters in turquoise blue tones and fine sand beaches, where you will find a land blessed with a contrasting ecosystem. Among the tropical forest, the wetlands, the white sand beaches, the coral reefs, the abundant wildlife and the wonderful archaeological sites, is the Costa Maya, which runs from Punta Herreros to Xcalak; close to the magical town of Bacalar, the pristine beach of Mahahual and the City of Chetumal.
It is the ideal place to practice alternative tourism and to really get in touch with the Mayan culture, since many of the communities here still maintain their ancestral traditions.
But if you are aiming to relax, its incredibly beautiful beaches are waiting for you; as many of them are pretty solitary.
For those looking for family activities, they will find diving and snorkeling areas in world-class coral reefs, magical towns, cultural values and traditions preserved for hundreds of years, dazzling nature that will make the most indifferent of humans dream with forests, jungles, lagoons and cenotes. Many of them suitable for bathing and swimming.
