I have never seen a private paradise for less than $100! Mayan Beach Garden is a very cute small hotel 13 miles from Mahahual in Costa Maya, where you can be in a 2-mile turquoise water and white sand beach with no one else but you. Very picturesque and clean rooms, you can wake up having your coffee in paradise... More

Mayan Beach Garden is a very friendly and cozy B&B run by Marcia and Kim. Their location 4 hours south of Cancun, on the azure Caribbean water, is just far enough to escape the hustle of the Riviera Maya. It is an easy and safe drive from the Cancun airport. Cars are cheap in Mexico. The tropical inn has several... More

I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and that you appreciate the tranquility and peace. It isn't for everyone. we consider our quests to be those special people who can enjoy quiet, the sound of silence when you are on a kayak out on the sea and the dark of night where we purposefully limit the light so...

We stayed at MBG almost 2 weeks as we became addicted to the slow and lazy live there. The best way to get there is by car as it is located approx 30 km from Mahahual. The owners Kim and Marcia can also pick you up when you arrive by bus from Chetumal. I recommend to contact the owners by... More

Thank you so much for your kind and detailed review. Now that it is November, the wind returned to it natural speed and blew almost everything out. What you thought were sand flies (we don't have any) were either these super tiny mosquitoes, or "chiquistas." They travel in swarms, so sometimes you have them, but most times you don't. Its...

I visited once before, briefly. This time I stayed for one month. The beach is a coral reef and you can snorkel right off the shore in many places.

If you're expecting a hotel with all the amenities you can imagine then Mayan Beach Garden is not for you. This is a wonderful small resort (7-9 rooms), off the beaten path (a half hour drive to Mahahual), with decent wifi, no tvs, family style dinner (all the guests eat together with the owners), no real AC and no fancy...

Thank you so much for the thoughtful review. And you are 100% correct. That Sargasso was a nghtmare.
