First time in Costa Maya. Seaweed is prevalent in the Spring. We're not big drinkers so the alcohol did not make up for the smell of seaweed. The wooden lounge chairs are not comfortable.More

Loved our day at Maya Chan Beach. The pre-visit instructions are perfect. The shopping at the port tries to have you bob and weave around all the shops with really bad exit directions. Be persistent and keep trucking through until you get to the taxis...More

We were there middle of February and there was a lot of sea grass but they cleaned it up rather quickly in the morning. There were no problems with it.
