Ride through downtown Costa Maya on a Segway, an easy-to-operate personal transporter that allows you easy access to the central shopping district and later a relaxing beach club.
Depart from the pier for a brief drive to a practice area where you'll learn one-on-one how to operate your Segway. These electrically powered personal transporters offer a wonderfully easy way to explore Costa Maya at a comfortable pace.
You'll soon see how simple it is to get around on your Segway. To move it forward or backward, just lean forward or backward. A similar move steers the Segway left or right. With just two wheels, the Segway stays balanced, so all you have to do is to hop on, stand upright and lean one way or the other. Once you feel comfortable operating the Segway, you'll set-off with your fellow guests to explore Costa Maya.
Then, traveling in a caravan of Segways, you'll follow a route along the beautiful coastline to the main shopping area of Costa Maya. There you'll have time to browse the boutiques, shopping for favorites such as beachwear and silver jewelry. Then, it's on to the beach club, where you're free to swim or do nothing more energetic than sip a cool drink while watching the waves break on the shore. This is your time to do as you please. Then, whenever you're ready to depart, you'll find a taxi waiting to drive you back to the pier.
