Costa Maya was the 1st stop on our sailing on the Norwegian Star and we just wanted to relax and that's what we got. We took the $2 cab from the dock to Mahahual and Carlos flagged us down as we were strolling the beach. He showed us some very fresh looking fish, had us sit at a table at the waters edge, brought us free margaritas, made arrangements for us to both have $20 one hour massages after lunch and in 20 minutes brought out a magnificent platter with a whole grilled red snapper and all the fixins. More than we could eat and the most delicious fish either of us ever had at a very reasonable price

We then were treated to a great massage lying next to each other by 2 locals who really knew what they were doing. Linda had a guy and I had a woman and the hour went too fast.

We could not of hoped for a better day.

Christmas day dinner- fresh fish on the beach for 6! The service is excellent, atmosphere is divine- sitting in the sand under a Palapa 25 ft from the turquoise water @ the beach! You choose the 'live' fish they bring to you & while your meal is being prepared you can relax & soak in the incredible scenery or barter with wandering merchants . I recommend the refreshing fresh coconut juice,in the coconut, or ice cold Mexican beer! Meal comes with Mole sauce, salad, soft torttias and limes. SO good we ate there each time we went into Mahahual & actually were introduced to this great eatery by friends we'd just met! SO it has a bit of a GREAT reputation.. Thank-you Ernesto!

My family went here last week of February 2012. Costa Maya was a Port of call, on our cruise. We found Green Iguana and were very pleased with the time we spent there. The massages were excellent and priced right. Food was good, and service was prompt. Ernesto, thank you for the free picture of my girls with the mascot Iguana. We will remember it forever. Hope to visit here again someday soon.

We were in town on a cruise, RCCL, Jewel of the Seas. A large group of us (14) ended up here. It was deemed by all as "the best day ever". Ernesto and Mikey took amazing care of us. There is a beach rigth there where we all hung in the water. Ernesto and staff delivered drinks, great margarita's and delicioius food. Ask them to bring you a table in the water, they will!!!! Never had to leave the ocean~ A MUST!
