We are taking our first Carnival Cruise in July on the Liberty with DD, 22 months and DS 14 years. Is Tequila Beach a safe place to venture on our own or are we better off doing a ship sponsored beach tour at Uvero Beach in Costa Maya
Tequila Beach is actually Tequila Beach Club...its a bar/restaurant/resort type place that offers you packages to purchase for an all inclusive day...drinks, food, and loungers are provided. It is right before you get to the fishing village of Majuhaul...maybe 100 ft away. A $3 taxi ride (5 minutes) will get you there. You buy your taxi ticket at the port. It is $2 to get back. It's completely safe...we went there and LOVED it. The manager is Otto, a guy from Indianapolis. If you like to eat and drink, want beach loungers, and shade, you won't go wrong.
we have looked into tequila beach club it looks and seems nice on the website but i hear the water is very rough there, is there ample and safe swimming there? DS likes the idea of mexican snacks TIA
There was lots of seaweed directly in front of TBC. It was yucky. People were swimming in it, though, but I just couldn't do it. I did walk up the beach a bit though and the water was beautiful, clear, and calm, but a bit rocky when first getting in.
I was disappointed with Uvero Beach. It was really crowded the day we were there and the bottom of the ocean was covered in sea grass. I really like the beach at Majahual better (and it was cheaper).
