While in port at Costa Maya, Mexico last week we took a bus/taxi from port to YaYa Beach for $3 per person. We chose to go there due to the positive past reviews on here. The pictures posted in previous reviews somewhat resemble this place but I'm guessing they were taken long ago. Currently it is terribly run down.
This place currently is not at all a place one would want to spend a day let alone 10 minutes at.
Upon arrival we were greeted by some very nice people wanting to wipe down tables & beach chairs for us. That's where the good ended, We sat for a few minutes & quickly realized this was not a place we wanted to be at. The beach was filthy with garbage all over. The water had boats parked in it close to the beach making it not a place to swim. We were the only group there. We walked a little ways down the beach & found a much cleaner, well kept beach at El Delfin. Here there were tables, chairs & umbrellas & food & drink available. The beach here was beautiful. There was a changing area/bathroom inside the bar building that was not perfect but was useable. I would recommend El Delfin for a beach day while in Costa Maya,
I took some pictures to show what we found at YaYa Beach so others can see. I do NOT recommend YaYa Beach.
