Maya Chan beach

Ultimate guide (July 2018)
Maya Chan is a private beach on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, focused on tourists from cruise ships arriving at the port of Costa Maya. Daily amount of tourists is limited by the administration, so it never becomes overcrowded here. The place is beautiful and with excellent service. Unfortunately, there are usually a lot of algae in the water, but it doesn't spoil positive feeling. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Locals advise Mahahual.

As for Tulum, it's beautiful, but beachfront accomodation is very expensive. But it you stay in the village, it won't be quite a relaxation.

Why don't you think about Playa del Carmen? The beach is very good, and hotels are cheap.

Tulum vs. Mahahual. What is better for beach?
