Sailing in the Riviera Maya

Question, does anyone knows why there is not much sailing talk in the Riviera Maya?, I mean, there is not much advertising, you don’t see anyone talking about the region, which I believe is very beautiful, it seems very odd that I can’t find too much about sailing in that area of the Caribbean, I see a lot of notes on Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, etc., but nothing on the Riviera Maya. Does anyone knows the reason why?

Oh. You know, at first when I read what you wrote I had no idea what you were talking about, I had never heard the term "Riviera Maya" before, so I did a google on it, then when I finally got to a map showing the area I was like .. OH! I've been there!!

I don't know why people don't talk about that area much. I guess most people that go down to that part of Mexico would just call it Cancun or Cozumel or something, I really don't know. I have no idea what the sailing is like there, I was on land when I spent time there ...

What are you pretending not to know ?

I have always thought of it as more of a resort for tourist.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

Riveria Maya

Been There and is tuorist trap for the most part. Not as Cruiser friendly as far as checking in and out of country. You get to play find the proper official a lot. I have been told that the marina on Cozumel will do it all for you for a fee. Oh yeah fee can change depending on who is working and how nice you are!
