Explore the Mayan Ruins and More
In 2020, Bare Necessities will for the first time ever visit the beautiful Costa Maya, Mexico. It is believed the port was inhabited in 200BC, by the Mayan Civilization, where they resided until around 900AD. During this time Costa Maya was also a major maritime trade route. Mayans, known for being great engineers, designed and handcrafted beautiful structures along the coast in the region.
In the early 1500’s the Mayans were defeated by the Spaniards, which caused the kingdom to fall into ruin. The ruins remained undiscovered until rubber farmers discovered Costa Maya in the early 1990’s.
There are three sites to explore the ruins from including Chacchoben, Kohunlich, and Dzibanche.
Additionally, Costa Maya features amazing opportunities for diving and snorkeling. The Costa Maya cruise port is located along the 2nd largest reef system in the world, the Meso-American reef system. Here divers can visit and swim around ancient sunken shipwrecks, explore the coral walls, and come face to face with rays, turtles, eels, and vibrant fish – you may even see a shark!
Lastly, Costa Maya is covered with very fine white sand and crystal clear blue water to truly relax on the beach with a book and a tropical drink.
Bare Necessities is very excited to have the opportunity to visit this destination for the first time, and would love to have you share this maiden experience with us onboard the Big Nude Boat 2020 cruise.RESERVE YOUR CABIN
