Cruisers: stop in Costa Maya??go to Mahahual!!

Just returned from Costa Maya-- our ship stopped from 8-2pm.

We walked (30 min.) south to the town of Mahahual (or take a taxi for $3) It was AWESOME!! We stopped at the first bar (at north end) called Corona del Mar. Beautiful beach--great snorkeling right in front of the bar and free use of kayaks if you eat/drink there.

The owner--Jesus Agca is great--fun to chat with!!

The whole town is really cool to walk through--inexpensive and authentic mexico!!

Yorktown Heights...

You go out of the shopping area and make a left--there is only one road. Just continue along it and you will shortly come into town.

There is nothing between the port and the little town--take water b/c it is pretty hot.

Have fun!! Say hi to Jesus from the Ways from Pa. !!

We decided against the golf cart based on cost and took a taxi into town. It went very well - the taxi drops you in the center of the town, next to a row of restaurants on the beach. If you walk to the beach (20 yards) and then walk up or down the beach, owners will ask you to sit for various prices. We settled with on of the less pushy guys -- use of the lounge chairs for 4 for the day for the price of a $10 bucket of six beers. We spent the day, moved around from sun to shade, ate lunch at a table under a thatched hut, etc.

The water was clear -- you could see your feet standing in 5 feet of water and the beach was pure white sand and not crowded. All in all, it was perfect -- the opposite of our experience in Cozumel
