Description: Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya, Mahahual. Our goal is to satisfy our customers by offering an unforgettable beach experience. What we call "Yaya day" will be the best memory of your vacation: it's not a regular beach break - our guests just chill at the beach and let us take care of them in our Yaya way. We speak English, Spanish, Italian and our restaurant and bar combine tropical drinks and cocktails, with local seafood and Mexican style dishes, including lobster. Plus, if you want something more than pure relax, the beach club hosts DOCTOR DIVE, the best and safest dive center in Costa Maya for snorkeling, discover scuba diving and boat trips. Moreover we have free wifi, showers, massages and male/female restrooms. Purified water is used for all Yaya food and beverage.

Great restaurant food was excellent we arrived for lunch and it started to rain they accommodated us upstairs in a palapa they did everything they could to make us comfortable with the best service. We went back the following day to spend the day at the beach since we check out from our hotel next door. Again service and food great we had the same palapa for us as well the same waitress, the best we even bought a tshirt :) I highly recommended

I am currently in Mahahual with my boyfriend and a group of friends, and we are having the best time. After ordering food at a place close by Yaya with a very much less than satisfactory result and with staff not being service minded we went over to Yaya and were met by the owner himself taking care ofus. Drinks and food are excellent and the staff very nice always knowing when that next cold drink should be served. My boyfriend also went out diving with their diving guys next door and I got to try fresh ceviche for the first time in my life! We really felt taken care of!

Having ate at another less than fabulous establishment we were very surprised to find the ice cold beers and good food at YaYa! Located right in the heart of the strip (Malecon?) Good food reasonably priced. Cold beers. Great beach. The owners also have an Italian Ice cream shop next door and I swear it was the creamiest Chocolate Ice cream I've had in weeks! Big Props and a must try when you are in Mahahual.

We have been on beaches from Hawaii to the Carribean and both east and west coast of the US. This beach is gorgeous! The service is outstanding. Snorkling was very good. Norma runs the bar and makes sure everyone has fun. If you can tolerate people selling items on the beach, which is common on many Carribean islands, a day on the beach here is a wonderful experience. Costa Maya was a port of call on our Disney cruise. The beach is less than 10 minutes from the docks where the cruise ships are located. A word of caution-- the town is not fancy and some in our group of 9 felt a little uneasy on the taxi ride to YaYa. However, my impression is that the people who make their living off tourism, will make sure no one tries to take advantage of tourists. Ask for Raul at the taxi station just outside the shops near the dock. He will arrange for a taxi to this gorgeous beach.

We went diving with Doctor Dive (right next door) and afterwards we hung out at the bar, had drinks and some snacks. The food and drinks were awesome and reasonably priced. They also have free wifi! If you are on a cruise ship and looking for a beach for the day this is the spot. Great people and great service.
