The beautiful Riviera Maya in the Mexican Caribbean is now waiting for charter sailors: A new yacht charter base on Isla de Mujeres near Cancun offers new sailing catamarans, as a start Bali 4.5 cats.
A spectacular sailing destination is waiting for you in Mexico. Of course you find crystal clear waters and white beaches, but the Riviera Maya offers so much more: The island Isla de Mujeres is a beautiful and popular holiday area with a perfect infrastructure for sailors. It offers beautiful beaches and great reefs for snorkeling and diving. You can even swim with dolphins in the Garrafon National Park. The area is part of the 700 miles long Mesoamerican Reef which is famous as being the second largest coral reef of the world. Especially impressive is the “Underwater Museum” MUSA, featuring around 500 sculptures on the ground of the sea!
On the island you find as well ruins of a Maya temple. On the mainland, the Yucatan Peninsula was the centre of the Maya culture. Tulum was a port town of the Maya, well known as a centre of trade. The ruins of the old Maya fortress can be visited there directly beside a beach. Another highlight is Chichen Itza, one of the 7 new world wonders, with the Kukulkan Pyramid which features a temple on top. You can book excursions to Chichen Itza during or after your charter cruise. If you are short of time: there are even half day excursions from the coast to Chichen Itza, with small planes – fast and uncomplicated. And of course there is a dedicated Maya museum in Cancun which is worth a visit if you take the time to explore the city.
During your charter cruise, you will enjoy the best beaches in Tulum, Playa del Carmen or on the island of Cozumel. You can swim with turtles or watch whale and lemon sharks, snorkel and explore the reefs in Playa del Carmen, near Puerto Morelos which used to be a fishing village, and in Cozumel or explore underwater caves. On Isla Holbox you will see a paradise for flamingos and many other species of birds.
And of course you can enjoy fine restaurants, explore typical Mexican or Mayan cuisine and find nightlife, bars and shops at the Riviera Maya.
