The “Princesa Maya” a ship that has been wrecked on the beach at Passion Island for more than 6 years may finally have another purpose:  Cozumel’s newest scuba attraction.  According to Cozumel’s Harbor Master, Alfonso Rodríguez Loaiza, the actual owners of the boat have not released their rights to the boat, nor have they signed the boat over to become federal property, thusly for all these years, the wreck has been in limbo.

Now that time has passed, and there is interest and support from different sectors here in Cozumel, there is discussion of scouring the boat to remove fuel, oil and other contaminants and opening the wreck-up to be scuba accessible.   The Princesa Maya would then be sunk  in a location inside the national marine park, creating a new artificial reef.
