We have an online map that is built partly by calling a Google MapsEngine layer (http://dea.snowball.co.za/). MapsEngine has been deprecated and we need to bring in this layer from somewhere else.

MapsEngine made it very easy by providing layerkeys etc.

mapsEngineLayer[0] = new google.maps.visualization.MapsEngineLayer({
            mapId: '08041245187153135450-08879288594674088841',
            layerKey: 'layer_00006',
            map: map,
            name: 'Reserves'

Can I do something similar from CartoDB?


Not sure about CartoDB but if you can get access to the layer from your data source in GeoJSON format, then you can use the Data Layer in the Maps API.
