Listed as a meeting point for multiple international cruises, Mahahual has become one of the favorite destinations for travelers around the world. This wonderful paradise is known for being a fishing village with a vibrant nature, great tranquility and a laid back attitude.

Over the past few years, this paradise has seen great growth in all of its activities, such as amazing tours in the fantastic Costa Maya and attractions like Mayá, a water park in Mahahual themed with the many wonders of Mayan Culture.

Since the feeling of peace and adventure lives in every corner of Mahahual, we feel it’s perfect if you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

But where is it?

Mahahual has a beautiful blue sea and fantastic marine species since it is near the Banco Chinchorro, the second largest barrier reef in the world. It is just 1 hour and a half away from Bacalar and just 55 kilometers from the Cancun-Chetumal Federal Highway 307. Perfect for adventurers & explorers!

How to get there?

* From Cancún and Riviera Maya: Cancún is 4 hrs 20 minutes from Mahahual, Playa del Carmen 3 hrs 20, Puerto Morelos 3 hrs 49 and Tulum 2 hrs 26. Since the highway will be the one already mentioned, you can make a fun road trip with friends or, if you are in relax mood, take a bus to Chetumal and from Chetumal to Mahahual.

* From Chetumal: Just 1 hr 49 minutes from Mahahual, you can take a bus that leaves from the ADO Terminal. We recommend you to check the schedules beforehand.

* From CDMX: While there is not a direct flight to Mahahual, you can take one to the Chetumal International Airport. From there, head to the ADO Terminal and complement with a bus trip to your destiny.

* International: The easiest at this point is to arrive at the Cancun Airport and taking a bus to Playa del Carmen. Once you get to Playa del Carmen, you can take a bus or a private taxi.
