We wanted a relaxing beach stop in Costa Maya and the Tropicante was a fine choice. Cain, George & Steve took great care of us. We arrived via the outside taxi (this was somewhat of a walk - nothing too bad but we had two seniors with us). We were met by Cain who led us to the front row of shaded beach chairs - perfect! I had communicated via email to Steve that we needed shade but also be able to see the kiddos in the water.
We immediately requested two massages and a request to go on the bannana boat. I rec'd a deluxe massage for $25 (compare that to the $150 one on the ship). It was a little disconcerting when the masseuse sort of pulled my bathing suit down without much warning. The massage is set up in front of God and everyone but I was able to just let it go.
The bannana boat was great fun until we were thrown into the water. Oops - I forgot to tell my 7 & 9 year old & they totally freaked. I couldn't cojole them back on the bannana boat so the three of us ended up in the big boat while our family rode back on the bannana boat.
The time was so short. We headed back to the ship around 4:30. Sixteen of us ate, drank, got massages, went on the bannana boat for around $350.00. It was a pretty fantastic deal. We will be back!
