Costa Maya and Into the Yucatán Jungle


Our first port of call out of New Orleans was Costa Maya on the Yucatán Peninsula.  And, true to its name, it lies within ancient Mayan territory.

The first things that strike you here are the magnificent blues and aquas of the clear Caribbean waters.  The pictures below are true to the color.  No increase in color saturation was done in the minimal post processing.

Our stay in Costa Maya was to be a short one, however.  We had an appointment elsewhere.  We met with our tour guide and his driver and boarded for a journey that would take us some hundred miles from the NCL Star and a couple of millennia into the deep past.
