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!

Take a taxi, it's faster and only $2/person each way. They'll drop you wherever you want along the beach. To access, just exit the port, there's a taxi stand 50 feet from the entrance, can't miss it. When they bring you... More
