Maya Chan beach
Ultimate guide 2017
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.  Find hotels in Maya Chan

Any comments or ideas are also appreciated:
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?
