Majahual, Mexico is located on Mexico's Southern Caribbean in the southern most part of the state of Costa Maya. The town of Majahual is at the geographic center of the coast. The Costa Maya takes it's name from the many centuries over which the Mayan people have known of this fishing and diving paradise. Majahual town is a small fishing village that is gearing up to be the next Playa del Carmen. Much of the town has been acquired by speculators that hope the boom will eventually get down that way as it did in Playa. In fact many of the new residents are from Cancun or elsewhere. In 2000 they finally completed their dock, which was certified to accept cruise ships. There is a new airport close to the coast. Having slumbered for hundreds of years, the once sleepy fishing village of Majahual, is now beginning to awaken to the desirability of eco-tourism. Positioned just south of the huge 1,500,000 acre Sian Ka'an wildlife preserve, Majahual has recently been exposed by tourists from North America.
As the Caribbean's newest cruise ship destination, Majahual, Mexico is now home to a new cruise ship dock and mall. For tourist full enjoyment.
Great places to eat are easy to find there are quite a few tiny restaurants on the beach in Majahual where scrumptious lobster, conch and fresh fish are served daily.
Majahual is best known for its diving with the world renowned Chinchorro Reefs off the coast. The beaches are totally private and all natural.
