Hello, i have a question for someone. Can anyone tell me anything about Costa Maya. I am going on a cruise and it ports there and apparantly noone knows anything about it. Is it a dirty place or does it have nice beaches like Playa De Carmen does or what. Please help me.
If you like to relax and enjoy a nice sandy beach you can get a taxi or walk to the town of Mahahual. The taxi is $5/person round trip. The town is basically one long beach with bars and restaurants and a little bit of shopping. No charge to use the beach as long as you eat or drink something. There are vendors in the area that offer jet skis, banana boats, parasailing, etc. We really enjoyed our day there and would love to go back.
I was just in Costa Maya. It was my favorite stop on the cruise. There is a real nice large facility at the pier that has shops and restaurants. Walk down the path (20 minute walk--well worth it) and it takes you to the fishing village where you will find more restaurants and shops. There is a beach club called Tequila Beach. It has great food, etc. They don't charge you to swim there.....Just be nice and order something!!! The walk was very fun, you'll see Iquanas!!!
