Mahahual was my favourite spot on our tour south from cozumel. It is still kind of untouched, small town, easy going. It has the vibe and feeling of an island. Long sandy beaches, perfect for snorkeling and swimming. Dont have kids but would say perfect...More

Easy to get to from Costa Maya Pier. $3 per person to get there. Lots of shopping but most importantly great seafood with $ dollar beers! Plenty of chairs with umbrellas everywhere. Beautiful clean crystal clear beach. Very safe. Easy for wheelchairs!

Mexican beer and there were five as best I remember but they were like the mini beers(I think 7oz). Regular size Mexican beers were $2.00 each.

I do not see the need for an all inclusive as I have one or two beers and some light eats. Also, there have been some very concerning reports about Mexican all-inclusive horror stories...spiked drinks and much worse. You can... More
