Setting sail from Puerto Morelos
Puerto Morelos sits on the Riviera Maya roughly halfway between Cancún and Playa del Carmen, with a more authentic feel than both of its more famous neighbours. Development here has been restricted, and the main attraction is the stunning Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, a magnet for snorkellers and scuba divers. The town is surrounded by mangrove forests, while inland you can explore the spectacular sinkholes known as 'cenotes'.
Honduras: Puerto Cortes
Guatemala: Santo Tomás de Castilla, Lívingston
Belize: Belize City
Belize’s capital does not enjoy the best reputation, and we wouldn’t recommend spending too much time here; use it instead as a jumping-off point to explore the fascinating Mayan ruins of Xunantunich, Lamanai and Altun Ha, or take a snorkelling trip to the beautiful Barrier Reef, including the famous Blue Hole.
Bahamas: Half Moon Cay
The island of Little San Salvador, now known as Half Moon Cay, was purchased by Holland America Line for $6 million in 1997. This private island retreat features villas and cabanas available for rent, along with restaurants, watersports facilities and a tranquil wildlife reserve.
