We went to Tropicante when our ship docked in Costa Maya. I had contacted Steve prior to our arrival and he had reserved 2 loungers and 2 adirondack chairs for us. Jorge was our waiter and we had excellent service all day. The food and drinks are very reasonable and cooked well. Steve told us how to get a cab to his spot on the beach and all went very smoothy and uneventful. My suggestion is to leave the cruise port and tell the inside drivers you are going to the Hard Rock Cafe, outside the port. Right outside the Hard Rock is an Official Taxi Stand, The cabs costs less per person and they will take you directly to Tropicante. Here you will find Steve. He is an excellent host on a most beautiful, unspoiled stretch of beach. Thanks for a great day.
