Majahual (pronounced Ma-ha-wall) is a small coastal village about 2 miles south of the fancy new port of Costa Maya. There are some who complain that you have to travel to get to the beach...and the village is a fishing village and rather poor...but it is worth it!
My DD and DSIL spent the day at a beach club. I had done extensive research for them on the best choice and recommended Pez Quadro. I must have done well, because they returned happy and relaxed, with a glowing report of the establishment.
Now be warned, these are not the kind of beach clubs you will find somewhere like Cancun. This a small village, not a renowned resort area...at least not yet. None the less, they had a wonderful time.
A package was purchased for $35 per person that included lounge chairs, an umbrella or palapa, nachos, and an open bar for the entire day. They certainly got their moneys worth, and DD managed to snag a massage on the beach as well.
Though I only stepped on to the beach for a few minutes that day, I can report the following per my kids...
- the beach was clean
- the sand was white
- the service was excellent
- the drinks were wonderful
- the food was good
- the area was not overcrowded
- the dancers/singers from the ship hung out there
- the water was clear
- there is a great view of the ships
- you can buy from local vendors
- you can buy great cigars
- the bathrooms/showers are clean and quite nice
- they have really cute menus
Really a great way to spend a relaxing day in port in a still fairly unspoiled area. Enjoy it before the big hotels move in!
