Hoey Cruise – Costa Maya – Port #4

Costa Maya, Mexico

Our fourth and final port of call was Costa Maya, Mexico. Costa Maya was definitely an odd place, it was built out of the jungle only 6 years ago exclusively for the Cruise industry. Then, in August 2007 the whole area was completely wiped out by hurricane Dean. Our ship was only the second to dock in Costa Maya since the hurricane hit and the destruction was still very prominent. I think the most surreal part about the whole place was that while we were amid all the destruction from last year, we could see hurricane Paloma slowly moving across the horizon towards Grand Cayman, a port we had been visiting only days before…
