We are going to the Mexican Caribbean to get to know a small fishing town that is being increasingly visited and that seems to be able to become a fashionable destination. We refer to Mahahual , located in the state of Quintana Roo, a perfect environment for disconnecting since it is a small and quiet town surrounded by spectacular beaches.
Part of the expansion of this place is due to the fact that it has become an international cruise port , with the second most important pier in the Mexican Caribbean. Do you want to know it in more detail? We will tell you everything below.
The beaches of Mahahual
One of the main attractions of this place are its beaches, with white sand and crystal clear waters where it is possible to practice diving and enjoy wonderful sunrises and sunsets. This place is located in front of the second most important barrier reef in the world and is the point of the mainland that is closest to the Chinchorro Bank. In addition, about 60 kilometers away is Xcalak, one of the last virgin beaches in the Caribbean that will welcome you with spectacular landscapes and incredible waters for fishing, snorkeling or diving.
What to do in Mahahual?
In addition to touring its sandy Caribbean streets, the small fishing town of Mahahual is surrounded by other tourist attractions. For example, one hour from this place is Punta Herrero, a natural space that is part of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
For some time now, Mahahual has been transforming, going from being a little known fishermen’s municipality to being an increasingly popular tourist destination , especially due to the dock that we discussed earlier, the Delphinus Costa Maya dolphinarium, its restaurants and hotels more and more numerous and the importance that it acquires for lovers of fishing and diving.
