We landed at the Costa Maya port on a cruise and I wanted to get away from the port so we grabbed a cab and headed down to the village to the south ~ Majahual.
It is still a bit touristy but at the same time just awesome. We parked ourselves at the Maya Bar and Beach Resort which had little sand piers built out to the water's edge. We picked a table at the ocean's edge and the kid's jumped into the beautiful water while we waited on lunch. It was awesome (did I already say that already?).
There were the typical vendors wandering up and down the beach but they were all very pleasant and easily moved on if we showed no interest. We spent several hours lounging at the beachfront restaurant.
Later we spent another hour wandering down the beach browsing the shops.
It was a great day and the people were wonderful.
