Belize City, Belize

You have arrived in Belize City…let the fun begin!

The former capital of Belize, Belize City has so much to offer. As you arrive, you’ll notice an incredible coastline with an abundant marine life providing scuba divers and snorkelers an unforgettable experience.

Jump on a catamaran and head to a private island for some of the most mind-blowing, guided snorkeling you will find anywhere. Soak in every minute as you explore the colorful life amongst the second largest barrier reef on earth. Once you have had enough underwater fun, grab a drink and a spot on the beach and soak up the rays and take a minute to relax…The Barrier Reef Snorkel and Island Getaway is an experience you will never forget.

If you prefer to keep your head above the water, then don’t miss out on cave-and-river tubing through the underworld of Xibalba. This tour allows you to get some exercise as you hike through the Belizean jungle, keeping an eye out for all of the surrounding wildlife. Then, hop on the zipline and soar through Nohoch Chen Archaeological Park and rainforest. After lunch, grab your tube and relax as you float through the cave systems in Xibalba. This is an adventure you won’t want to miss!

With carriage rides, rum tastings, train tours, beach day tours and even more…Belize City will be one of your favorite experiences on Cruise to the Edge. Be sure to take advantage of every second you have at this port. And remember, you only live once…soak up the fun!

Costa Maya, Mexico

If you enjoy white sand beaches and turquoise Caribbean water then don’t miss our stop in Costa Maya! Located 100 miles south of Playa del Carmen along Mexico’s Caribbean coast, this port has the beauty and feel of a private island. Rich in Mayan culture and best known for its jungles, beaches and lagoons…it is truly unlike any other.

The question you will have to ask yourself when planning your day in Costa Maya is not, “What is there to do?” But instead, “How will we do it all?”

As you exit the ship you will find restaurants, shops, two salt-water swimming pools,  bars as well as a dolphin encounter. With so much to do right at your fingertips, you may decide this is where you want to spend your afternoon.

Not only is there a ton to do just right in the port itself, but just five minutes from there you will find the town of Mahahual, featuring a boardwalk lined with shops, restaurants and boutique hotels.

From snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, catamaran sailing, shopping, ATV riding through the jungle…Costa Maya has it all.

Ever wondered about Mayan culture? Costa Maya has the highest concentration of Mayan archeological sites as well as the largest existing Mayan population in Mexico. Plan a trip to the Mayan Pavillion Park for traditional restaurants, swim up bars, Mayan architecture and more. Then, take some time to explore Chacchoben, Kohunlich and Dzibanche, the Mayan cities that surround it.

If you prefer to lay on the beach and enjoy the sun, look no further than the Costa Maya Jungle Beach Break. Cocktails, food, paddle boats and relaxing may just be what you need in order to ready yourself for our evening’s concerts.

Costa Maya is home to many locally owned and fantastic restaurants and shops filled with warmth and rich traditions. Whether lying on the beach, learning about the magic of the ancient Maya or taking part in an adventure of a lifetime, you will be swept away with what Costa Maya has to offer!
