Steve is super nice! Don't get suckered into going into someone else's restaurant. Make sure you are at Tropicante. We ordered drinks and Steve came out with tequila shots. He told us to sip it. My god it was the smoothest tequila I have ever had! Relaxing, awesome, anything you want at your finger tips kind of a place! I... More

Nancy says bring your books off of the ship and trade them in ... She has a great selection and trades even up and only $3... More

There were 11 of us that spent the day with Steve and his staff and we were so happy we found it on TripAdvisor! We had such a great time. The food was incredible, the drinks cold and the staff amazing. The beach is pretty good with the water shallow and clean. I would go back in an instant, we... More

Our second visit to Tropicante and once again a fabulous day. The website provides excellent instructions on how to take a $2 per person taxi once you arrive you are immediately swept away to the lounger. The staff arranges any extras you want to do (like a fabulous beach massage, banana boat ride etc.) and everything is added to your... More

We contacted Steve a few weeks prior to our Carnival Glory arrival on 12/22/14. We followed his directions and took a cab to the Tropicante. When we arrived, we were the first people there--- we felt like we were contestants on the Amazing Race :) We were able to pick our location and set up our loungers for the day.... More

I visited Tropicante on our recent cruise (Dec 2014). A very nice place. Steve is welcoming and his staff treats you like family. The beach area that is part of the restaurant is very clear. One of the popular treats by everyone was getting a massage right on the beach (I will definitely do this next time). The food was... More

This is a very easy place to find.. We walked out the second emergency exit at the port and you can see the "blue tower". Across from the tower is a taxi stand. There a person in charge that gets your taxi after you tell him the place you are going too. The set price is two dollars a person.... More

This is what a vacation should be. We're usually the adventurous types but a relaxed day at the Tropicante is exactly what we needed to recharge. The beach was perfect for our toddlers, the food and drinks were fantastic, and the massages.. ahh pure bliss. They even provided free tequila tastings and discounted rate massage for my pampered little princess.... More

Stopped by to pick up the geocache and stayed for a beer and conversation. Then took a taxi back to the port after all :)

This was an extremely pleasant surprise on a cruise stop at Costa Maya. Steve and Jorge were very accommodating and nothing was a problem. Great service and massages on the beach. We felt the prices to be very reasonable especially when compared to the other local places to visit. There was no reservation fee or minimum amount to spend. My... More
