Welcome to Porthole TV -- the magazine television series that features the cruise ship experience and its intriguing ports of call.
Aboard the ship of the Costa Cruise Line’s 'Costa Atlantica', Sidney Cohen brings us to Cozumel and Playa del Carmen, Mexico, on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Sometimes referred to as the Mayan Riviera, the ship anchors in Playa del Carmen and guests take the many shore excursions offered such as the ruins of Tulum. Also included are cruise travel tips from Portholes Magazine’s Bill Panhoff.
- One of the main attractions is Playa del Sol Beach park, offering fun in the sun, diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. Other water activities include climbing the water cubes, jumping on the in-water trampoline or simply swinging in the hammocks on the beach.
