Puerta Maya Mini Guide

What’s Puerta Maya Like?
It’s a beautiful island, part of a large coral reef off the eastern coast of Mexico. It has beautiful beaches and a host of archaeological sites. The towns on the island are sleepy and laid back but have a good variety of shops as well as quaint, traditional places for your lunch. The island isn’t huge meaning that you can get to see most of it on a day excursion and it’s a good idea if you get hold of the shore excursion’s itinerary to know where the best places to visit are. With your own map which will come with the car, you’ll get there before the crowds and see the sights at their best.

Cozumel Puerta Maya Sign

How Will I get to Puerta Maya?
Many cruise ships doing the Caribbean run dock in Cozumel. Before the creation of Puerta Maya, guests were disembarked on tenders but now the ships dock directly alongside the pier. It’s a much quicker way of getting to see the delights of Cozumel.

Cozumel Puerta Maya Port

What can I do Whilst in Puerta Maya?
The ‘port’ is designed to capture cruise ship guests and get them to spend their money and the range of shops is certainly very tempting. You can buy top quality clothing, jewellery including fine diamonds, local high quality gifts and more. If you want to avoid the crowds and the high prices, walk out of the port and try  the local shops or collect a hire car to see a little more of the island.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

On a cruise, the last thing you may consider doing is hiring a car but after looking at the cost of shore excursions and the time it takes to get everyone into coaches and setting off, you’ll find that hiring your own car for the day is actually a very good idea. We can organise Puerta Maya car hire for you so the minute you disembark, your car will be waiting for you. Whilst others pile slowly into cramped coaches, your quality hire car will be ready to take you where you want to go.

You’ll find that as well as giving you more time to explore the island; your hire car will be much cheaper than excursions for couples or more. We find the lowest cost car rental by working with the top companies on Cozumel and make sure that the car is a quality vehicle so you can explore Cozumel in comfort and security.
