Thank you for coming and enjoying the resort. We are a very small beach resort. "Chan" means "little" in Mayan. Hence Maya Chan Beach in Mayan, would be " Little Mayan Beach". Glad you enjoyed the water and beach. Come back soon.

It'll depend on what time you dock, I think we got there about 10am and left at 15:00' it's about 30 minutes from the port, to be safe you'll probably have to leave at 12:00, if you can get there early then it might be worth... More
