Excursions w/ 4 yrs old

Recommended Posts

My husband and I havent been on a cruise since 2014 and I cant believe how much the prices have gone up on excursions. This is the first cruise we are taking with our 4 year old and I'm having trouble finding an excursion he can go on. Most say 8 years or older.

 

Any suggestions? I'm open to independent tours as well.

Excursions in Costa Maya are generally related to Maya ruins and some beach breaks.

The easiest and least expensive way to enjoy Costa Maya is to take the tram from port down to the malecon in Mahahual.

For younger kids, Blue Kay has been a better spot than those further down the malecon.  As all the beach clubs are effectively closed now with no ships in port, I'm not sure what or where the best places to go may be when they reopen.

 

Some links to better beach clubs:

There's a water park right outside the port complex. You don't need an excursion t go there and there are areas for smaller children.

Some cruisers like to stay inside the port complex.  There's a swim with the dolphins that you can watch and a tour of the aviary .

Thank you so much... This was so helpful. How would you get to the Mayan park? Can you walk or do you need a taxi? Any idea about the cost is?

Also when you say that the dolphin swim is in the port complex does that mean it's in walking distance?

Well yes.  But it's a long pier.
