Pier shuttle

Recommended Posts

Can anyone that's been to Costa Maya in the past couple of weeks (Sept) tell me if the little pier shuttle train has been transporting folks to the Port area? If so, was it running at ship arrival?

It was running on Sunday, 15 Sept 2019, when we were there.

I had only been to Costa Maya once before, so looked for the construction of a pier, expecting a second pier.

 

However, based on your description...

 

Facing away from the "shopping center" back towards the pier.  Past the end of the ship there was a dog leg of the pier to the left.  Is this the extension you are referring to?

 

If so, it looked largely complete.  There were no cranes on the extension or on barges next to the pier.  However, I believe there were barricades in place if you attempted to make a left turn on to the extension.  There were barricades around the bollards on the extension, much like on the part of the pier where we docked.  So I am thinking it is getting close, if I got the extension part correct.

No that left dog leg has been there a long time.  Supposedly extending the main pier out beyond where the extension meets to accommodate 6 ships not just 3.  So if the main pier was longer, then the extension is complete.  If not, then it hasn't started.

Not sure why this is in Mazatlan post!

Doesn't mention 6 ships - maybe the others tender?

Thanks.  some one was saying it would take 5-6 ships, but guess it depends on size.  2 Oasis size ships would certainly limit the long pier capacity.
